AgilePQ Partners with Centri

New Agreement Strengthens Full Scale IoT Security Technology

Salt Lake City, Utah, March 11, 2020AgilePQ, a software company providing highly advanced data security for the Internet of Things (IoT) and post-quantum computing, formally announced its partnership with CENTRI Technology, Inc., an IoT cybersecurity company known for technology that performs over-the-air retrofits of existing devices. The agreement licenses AgilePQ as the sole provider of all CENTRI technologies.

“CENTRI’s technology is a force multiplier with AgilePQ,” said Paul Clayson, AgilePQ’s chief executive officer.  “CENTRI and AgilePQ have been building different but complimentary world-class solutions for a market suffering from massive data breaches.  This combination strengthens the solutions of each company in post-quantum cybersecurity technology and expands our experienced and talented team of security engineers.  The core CENTRI technology particularly aids our delivery in providing end-to-end security for mobile network operators using a variety of cellular and wireless protocols to connect IoT devices,”

According to Michael Mackey who came to AgilePQ as part of the arrangement and now serves the company’s chief technology officer, “While robust, CENTRI’s technology was based on legacy encryption that will become increasingly vulnerable in the future and which already cannot fit on resource constrained IoT devices.  And we were not alone.  We see companies of all sizes relying on last century’s secure methods to protect themselves as we enter the era of quantum computers.  AgilePQ offers a solution that is as elegant as it is powerful.  With an incredibly small footprint that allows it to fit on any device and provide post-quantum protection it will define the future of security.  We now deliver fully encrypted, post-quantum security to the smallest of IoT devices (Class 0-2 devices).  We can deploy on a SIM card, as a direct software integration, embedded in a processor or through other delivery methods.”

As part of the new agreement, AgilePQ is now able to deploy the benefits of nine CENTRI patents to add to its portfolio of 17 issued, and 16 pending patents—all focused on data security and cryptographic implementation.
