After a rigorous selection process, ONEKEY was chosen as one of the three finalists to present their cybersecurity solutions before an audience and a panel of esteemed jury members.

The Industry’s Current Situation and Need for Cyber Resilience

The importance of cyber resilience in today’s industrial landscape cannot be overstated. With the increasing digitization and interconnectivity of industrial control systems and smart products, businesses face significant cybersecurity challenges. Cyber-attacks have become more frequent and sophisticated, posing risks to production, data integrity, and even financial stability.

It is in this context that ONEKEY’s solution comes into play. They provide an automated platform for analyzing and managing vulnerabilities in industrial products and infrastructures. By conducting in-depth firmware analysis of devices with dedicated chipsets, ONEKEY offers a comprehensive risk assessment, identifying potential vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. This proactive approach allows organizations to strengthen their cyber resilience, protect critical assets, and ensure compliance with regulations.

Product Cybersecurity Compliance from Design to End of Life

Core to ONEKEY’s vision is their “Digital Cybersecurity Twins” technology, an innovative approach that facilitates quick and accurate identification of security vulnerabilities and compliance infractions. The process requires no disruption of operations or access to source code, device, or network. It ensures continuous 24/7 monitoring to maintain the highest security standards and prompt identification of potential violations.

For added transparency, ONEKEY offers an automated SBOM (Software Bill of Materials) generator, an insightful tool that provides an in-depth inventory of used software components. In doing so, it allows users to comprehend and manage potential vulnerabilities better. The firm’s AI-driven CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) matching technology assists in targeted identification and mitigation of known and potential security vulnerabilities.

Integrated with automated security checks and seamless self-assessment of compliance with industry standards like IEC 62443 and the EU Cyber Resilience Act, ONEKEY’s platform lets customers create custom security profiles, thus highlighting and addressing relevant vulnerabilities efficiently.
