Security of connected devices
According to Gartner, there will be 25 billion connected devices in use by 2024. In a hyperconnected world, the risks of cyberattacks are increasing and the Internet of Things is not an exception to the rule.
Depending on the use case, the level of security can vary and can therefore be adapted according to the risks involved. In the case of simple temperature or humidity data feedback, the risk is considered low. On the other hand, when it is a question of a remote control on an equipment for example, the risk is not the same with consequences which can be very harmful.
It is important to consider the entire IoT project when talking about security. From the sensors to the restitution interfaces and the communication networks of the telecom operators.

The IoT is a vast network of connected systems, which automatically collects and exchanges large volumes of data and has become part of our daily lives.
In the private sphere, we speak in particular of “smart home”, “smart watch” but also in the various places of consumption (gym, cinema, museums…).
With the implementation of devices to control the traffic flow or the level of water, but also in the development of Smart City projects.
In the expansion of new connected services in their value propositions such as remote surveillance cameras, tracking of goods or vehicles.
What are the advantages of a Private APN?
The implementation of a Private APN reduces the risks of object piracy, over-consumption and lack of equipment availability.
Synox has set up private Access Point Names (APNs) with all its operator and multi-operator suppliers: Orange, Bouygues, SFR, Sierra Wireless and Eseye.
Each modem is set up with this Private APN and a login/password is required to access the telecom operator’s core network. The encrypted data is then only routed between the operator’s core network and the Synox platforms, without passing through the Internet.

"In our industry, smooth communication is a critical point since our service is tied to people. So we chose Synox because when we need technical support, we get a diagnosis and a solution very quickly."
Computer & telecom engineer
"We were looking for a mature solution for rapid deployment, which is what Synox offered us. From decision making, to hardware purchase and deployment (connectivity, dashboards...) thanks to Synox's end-to-end support, the 1st Proof of Concept was completed in less than a month!"
"We wanted to give ourselves the means to avoid breakdowns and reduce our customers' stress regarding production downtime. After some research, IoT quickly appeared to be the answer to this need. Synox's collaborative approach seemed to me to be the right one and convinced me. The ability to listen to the teams and the hyper responsiveness of the support department allowed us to successfully move this project forward."
"What is interesting about the Synox solution is that it can be adapted independently to the needs of our customers, and perhaps even later to other sectors of activity. With a very simple implementation and a modest cost, we were able to deploy the solution to about 20 customers within 6 months."
"It was possible to test the proper functioning of the solution proposed by Synox before the contract was put in place, so we were able to get quick feedback from the sanitation department, which proved to be very positive. The responsiveness of Synox support in the event of a problem is much appreciated. It promotes our collaboration in an environment of trust."

"Before the installation of connected objects, sometimes it was our customers who informed us of a malfunction in the heating system... Now we can be proactive about this type of incident. We had already carried out several unsuccessful - and expensive - POCs before testing SoDATA#Viz but when we saw the real-time curves of our 50 objects, only a week after signing the POC, it quickly convinced us!"
