We are happy to announce a partnership with cybersecurity company CybExer Technologies to develop safer critical infrastructure monitoring solutions for cities of all sizes. The strategic partnership aims to combine Thinnect’s IoT expertise to build networks of sensors and provide applications for smart city IT solutions with CybExer’s vast cyber security experience in safeguarding complicated IT-systems.

The growing number of IoT devices will bring huge innovation and enable cities to operate more efficiently but it also makes them possible cyber attacks targets. Rainer Saks, CybExer Technologies Member of Management Board said that IT systems built for public good must be resilient in case of cyber disruptions. “Unfortunately, cyberattacks against IoT networks tend to be on the rise. We are excited to cooperate with Thinnect on the subjects that we both excel at, to create better solutions for the future,” Saks added.

“Understanding a city’s ecosystem is the key to creating a safe and sustainable living environment for everyone. Thinnect has ample experience in creating and deploying grids of sensors monitoring air quality, noise, traffic density, use of public space by pedestrians and cyclists and much more to provide insights for creating better living environments for people. Understanding the city ecosystem is the key to better planning and management,” said Jürgo Preden, CEO of Thinnect.

Our cooperation is targeting the global trend of urbanization and goals for sustainable built environments. As cities and population density grows at a faster pace, safety and sustainability can be achieved by applying smart technologies at scale in all built environments.
