Press Release: Onymos Wins 2024 Fortress Cybersecurity Award for Onymos IoT Software Solution

Fortress Award

Company honored for innovative approach to delivering a software solution for IoT and IoMT ecosystem and application development that prioritizes data privacy and security

SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2024 Onymos today announced it has been named a winner in the prestigious 2024 Fortress Cybersecurity Award presented by the Business Intelligence Group. The Company was honored for its innovative approach to delivering a software solution, Onymos IoT, for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) ecosystem and application development that prioritizes data privacy and security. 

“In today’s digital age, cybersecurity is no longer optional—it’s essential,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer at the Business Intelligence Group. We are proud to recognize Onymos for its innovative solutions and unwavering commitment to protecting our data and infrastructure from ever-evolving cyber threats.”

Onymos IoT is a software component suite that enables enterprise organizations across various industries—from medical device manufacturers to hospitals—to create secure IoT and IoMT ecosystems and applications. These components include: Onymos Edge, a drop-in data gateway that leverages edge computing and serves as an IoT ecosystem’s communication layer; Onymos DataStore, a battle-tested set of utility functions for securely storing and retrieving data in the cloud and standardizing access and connectivity to the most popular cloud providers; and Onymos Access, a total login system that enables organizations to add their preferred enterprise-grade authentication method to IoT applications through a front-end code library.

The characteristics that make Onymos IoT unique in security are:

  • “No-Data” Architecture: This edge computing-powered architectural approach to software development ensures that Onymos has no access to any customer data while seamlessly enabling its software to be integrated within the customers’ cloud or on-premise infrastructure. This means that Onymos IoT users truly own their data and can control who and what has access to it. 
  • Code Integrity: Onymos IoT users can license the source code to these components, empowering them to customize it to their exact specifications – as if they had developed it themselves. This guarantees users full autonomy over their code, instilling confidence in its security and integrity. 
  • Continuous Testing: Onymos IoT and its components are subject to rigorous third-party audits and penetration tests.

“The growing number of cybersecurity incidents, ranging from accidental data breaches to intentional hacks, have highlighted the security and privacy limitations of many software solutions available to enterprises today. These organizations can’t bear the brunt of these events – many of which originate from a third party – while trying to maintain a strong security and privacy posture,” said Shiva Nathan, Founder and CEO of Onymos. “Our Onymos IoT solution enables us to help those in the most vulnerable and victimized industries, like healthcare, ensure their ecosystems and applications can be built seamlessly and are protected and provide complete data privacy. We are honored to be recognized by the Business Intelligence Group for this solution and our innovative and secure architectural approach.”

The Fortress Cybersecurity Awards honor the world’s leading companies and individuals who are at the forefront of cybersecurity innovation. Winners are selected based on their dedication to developing solutions, raising awareness, and defending against the growing threat of cyberattacks.
