Security has become a huge issue across both the Fintech and connectivity spaces. Hacking has become common place and cybersecurity is a universal concern. Connectivity Partners has addressed the problem using traditional methods but many organizations now want to move away from fixed IP solutions because of cost and management overhead. The challenge now is to provide the same protection but with the agility, speed and efficiency needed to support IoT at volume.

This is where ZARIOT comes in. The IoT Trust end-to-end encryption solution allows Connectivity Partners to remove traditional security solutions and introduce a whole new paradigm of sharing data.
