Zerocopter and Nixu have announced their collaboration in the field of online security and the security of IoT devices. By combining knowledge and expertise, the parties now offer a unique triage service to assess and thoroughly retest IoT vulnerabilities. In addition, Nixu specialists will make a valuable contribution to the online security expertise of Zerocopter.
The increasing importance of the security of IoT devices, including response to developments in this context, desperately requires expertise in IoT vulnerability Triage.
The Nixu-Zerocopter combination ensures that Triage can be provided for the full spectrum of vulnerabilities in IoT devices. In the partnership, Zerocopter reports on web interfaces or APIs. Where IoT hardware expertise is needed, Nixu contributes by verifying claims from bug hunters.
Edwin van Andel, CEO Zerocopter: "We are very pleased with this partnership. As specialists in the field of Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure and Bug Bounties, we constantly monitor market developments and we see that there is still much to improve in the area of IoT security. The combination of expertise ensures a wider reach for both parties."
Patrick van der Valk, Head of Benelux Nixu: “Since entering the Benelux market in 2016, Nixu has focused among other things on IoT security and ICS SCADA. We see growing interest from clients for a complete security concept, in which the Zerocopter services and platform fit perfectly. The collaboration with Zerocopter is a logical follow up to a number of joint activities that have taken place in recent years. It will allow us to respond more competitively to client demands within the industrial IoT segment.”
