-

Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland, Phoenix (AZ), USA, and Tempe (AZ), USA, May 15th 2019 – The Kudelski Group (SIX: KUD.S), the world leader in digital security, and CoreKinect, a leader in scalable hardware design & manufacturing which allows clients to achieve scale rapidly without compromising on quality or customization, today announced an agreement to create a joint solution enabling companies and organizations to securely and economically track their assets at scale, in sizes and form factors that have not been seen to date in the industry. 

The solution combines the custom hardware engineering expertise of CoreKinect with Kudelski’s more than thirty years of developing security technologies to protect high-value business models and use cases. Kudelski will deliver its Discrete Secure Element – a standalone security system on a chip containing a hardware root of trust and IoT Security Client. Combined with CoreKinect’s state-of-the-art miniature tracking and sensing solutions, the resulting device can enable a variety of miniturized use cases. For instance, it can fit inside the lid of a pill bottle to track chain of delivery for pharmaceuticals in order to guarantee their authenticity, or can be incorporated into food packaging to monitor the temperature and quality of food throughout the distribution chain.

Ali Kozlica, Executive Chairman at CoreKinect: “Tracking-based technologies are revolutionizing businesses across many industries. Our technology gives companies insights that drive business efficiencies and new business models, but for those solutions to be sustainable long term they must be protected from intrusion, tampering and sabotage. We are very pleased to partner with leading security visionaries Kudelski Group in order to ensure that what we deliver to our customers is as secure as it is innovative.”

Jean-Michel Puiatti, SVP IoT Security at Kudelski Group: “By securing CoreKinect’s innovative, low-power wireless asset tracking systems, together we can deliver end-to-end IoT solutions that enable completely new applications because of their miniature size and high level of security. By giving businesses visibility into their products at every phase of their lifecycle, we give them a level of insight and control over their business that they’ve never had before, while ensuring that it’s protected and sustainable for the entire lifetime of the product.”
