H2O Innovation Partners with Senrio to Bring Visibility and Trust to Industrial IoT Devices in Water Treatment Infrastructures
Quebec City, April 12, 2018 – (TSXV: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) is proud to announce that it has partnered with Senrio, Inc., provider of the leading IoT visibility and security solution, to provide users of our proprietary IntelogxTM system, performance monitoring software with a greater level of awareness and visibility into IoT device health and safety. In addition to the collection of operational data from multiple devices on water and wastewater plants, the integration of Senrio Insight with IntelogxTM will allow customers to rapidly respond when atypical patterns of behavior are detected or when unauthorized devices are discovered by Senrio’s self-learning technology. After being analyzed by Senrio’s predictive analytics engine and the world’s largest device intelligence data store, it will provide the operators continuous surveillance on its infrastructure and trigger alerts when abnormal behavior is detected.
IntelogxTM uses remote access to operating parameters of industrial IoT devices in order to collect, normalize and analyze data, all displayed on a comprehensive dashboard. The program helps operators to optimize their plant, generate reports and graphs, and analyze trends. “As its name implies, IntelogxTM brings intelligence and logical interpretation to operating data and uses the knowledge H2O Innovation has to monitor system health and predict maintenance requirements. The addition of Senrio in IntelogxTM addresses security and remote connectivity issues, one of today’s critical topics of the global water infrastructure market. This combination of IT technologies will create a state-of-the-art monitoring solution available to the water municipal and industrial markets”, stated Greg Madden, Vice President of Aftermarket and Digital Solutions at H2O Innovation.
“Industrial IoT devices are a blind spot for most enterprises. This is especially true in situations where equipment is deployed into adverse environmental conditions where there is poor connectivity, potentially delaying awareness of abnormal device behavior, or a compromise that might pose a risk to operations or operator safety. Integrating Senrio Insight into IntelogxTM provides added value to end-users, gives them unprecedented visibility and enables them to more effectively deal with safety or security concerns”, added Stephen Ridley, Senrio Founder.
This integration allows devices on systems built, serviced or operated by the Corporation to easily report their location, status, and behavior data over Wi-Fi or satellite links, from remote locations where network connectivity may be sparse or non-existent. It allows users to build profiles of device behavior, enabling IT administrators and security teams to establish a higher level of trust with these devices by understanding their usage patterns and determining if they are operating normally.
Senrio is an IoT security company that was founded on the belief that, with the right mindset and proper tools, we can bridge the gap between legacy security approaches and the new reality of the IoT. Our mission is to provide the visibility and actionable insights essential to ensuring the security and safety of all connected devices. We envision a world where our trust in connected devices matches the benefits they brings to our lives. Senrio is a trusted partner of global technology companies and government agencies.
