Clovity Combines Forces with Dispersive To Securely Connect IoT Endpoints

By Shrey Fadia

Clovity, an IoT and Industrial IoT solutions and system integration company serving Fortune 500 enterprises has announced it is now offering managed network services through a newly minted partnership with Dispersive Networks, which provides secure IP connectivity designed to protect mission critical systems from attack while improving the speed and reliability of private networks.


The two companies are combining their technologies for applications across a number of industry verticals, and to support large-scale Smart City initiatives.

As enterprise IoT continues to flourish as a foundation of many organizations’ digital transformations (allowing them to improve operations and develop and market connected products and solutions) IDC predicts worldwide technology spending will reach over $1 trillion in 2022, with a CAGR of 13.6% between 2017 and 2022, while Ericcson doubled their forecasts cellular IoT connections to 3.5 billion in 2023, a CAGR of 30%.

Clovity is highly focused on delivering the highest enterprise value for emerging technologies like IoT, Blockchain, Machine Learning/AI, Edge Computing, Security and Analytics in motion, and serves large retail, financial services, healthcare, industrial and smart city customers in the IoT/IIoT arenas.

Dispersive's software-defined networking (SDN) technology combined with Clovity's IoT platform, CSensorNet is enabling quick and secure transmission, analysis, and visualization of edge device data for enterprises while providing two layers of security, according to a press release issued by both companies.

"I am excited and proud to announce Clovity's new partnership with Dispersive, creator of Dispersive Virtual Network and programmable networking for mission-critical applications," said Clovity's Chief Executive Officer, Anuj Sachdeva. "In our continued quest to secure our IoT solutions, we have now bridged the technology gap between edge and cloud with a carrier-grade programmable network that routes traffic with significantly enhanced network security, redundancy, high reliability and top-notch performance."

The partnership supports the massive deployment of secured sensing endpoints employing best in class security technology to reduce risk, while also providing the resiliency and performance required for real-time applications. Dispersive Virtual Networks is a patented, multi-path software-defined networking, military-grade overlay solution. Its 100% software-based approach divides network traffic into separate, independent packet streams, then sends each stream across a different, individually encrypted path. 

"IoT is transforming entire industries, but it is also creating new attack surfaces and creating new opportunities for cybercrime. We believe that security cannot limit innovation in IoT. IoT platform and solutions providers have to take action to embed security directly into their offering," said Edward J. Wood, President, and CEO, Dispersive Networks. "Our partnership supports the adoption of IoT, even in the most challenging industry verticals and will support its long-term growth."

CSensorNet is a plug and play IoT platform that enables data capture from IoT sensors in deployments like Smart City, Smart Car, Smart Lights, and Smart Home as well as many others. It makes real-time and historical data available on dashboards using an API and Web-based portals. CSensorNet is capable of rapid large-scale integrated enterprise IoT roll-outs across enterprises in the Fortune 500.
