Best Tech Startup (Silicon Valley) | Xage Security has created an innovative product for securing the rapidly evolving Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As connected devices become more pervasive in our world – from smart homes to cars to cities to personal devices to factories – convenience and productivity have increased, but so has the risk of catastrophic hacks and security events. While technology has made our world more connected, security technology has remained static. Still tied to hardcoded username/password approaches and traditional, centralized security systems, IoT devices – predicted to be about 20 to 30 billion by 2020 – are increasingly vulnerable to attack. Xage’s executive team––Roman Arutyunov (co-founder), Susanto Irwan (co-founder), and Duncan Greatwood (CEO)––is working to maintain security without sacrificing IoT benefits. With years of experience across cybersecurity and distributed systems, Xage’s team has pushed the boundaries of IIoT security by creating a novel solution––a blockchain-protected security fabric securing the evolving IoT technology of today and tomorrow. Eliminating a single point of failure while getting stronger and more secure with each device added, Xage’s products have huge social impact – as a foundational solution preventing dangerous hacks on connected systems, and enabling previously unscalable projects. The fabric introduces groundbreaking innovation, such as distributing encryption keys with blockchain tamperproofing to preserve the confidentiality of secret information such as IoT device password.
