KnectIQ and CSL enter agreement to enhance marketplace cybersecurity
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and KnectIQ entered into an agreement to bring enhanced cyber security solutions to the marketplace, including leveraging KnectIQ’s novel authentication technology and the Coordinated Science Laboratory’s intrusion detection and intrusion protection systems (IDS/IPS) technology. KnectIQ will work particualry with CSL and ECE Professor Ravi Iyer and his research group.
“Securing sensitive information while maintaining its usability is a great challenge for most organizations. In my opinion, KnectIQ is the unique solution to these important problems across many industries, ranging from healthcare to banking, telecommunication and more,” said Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, a leading trust, privacy and data security research and consulting firm.
Critical national infrastructure (defense, energy, water, finance, transportation and healthcare systems), connected vehicles, command and control systems and the Internet of Things are prime threat surfaces for hackers and others looking to undermine our increasingly connected world. Compromised systems as a result of cyberattacks continue to grow. KnectIQ’s technology secures access to these and other threat points.
KnectIQ, based in Woodbury, MN, is a cybersecurity and information security company that secures authentication to networks, gateways, computing devices (including mobile), medical devices, chipsets and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints.
The University of Illinois’ Coordinated Science Laboratory is a premier, multidisciplinary research laboratory that focuses on information technology at the crossroads of computing, control and communications.
