Edgeworx Selected as Hot IoT Security Startup to Watch by Network World

Sponsored by Businesswire

Edgeworx Inc. today announced that it has been selected to the “10
Hot IoT Security Startups to Watch
” list published by Network World.
The company has also been named a finalist in the TiE50 Awards
competition, recognizing the world’s most innovative tech startups. This
recognition comes on the heels of last month’s announcement that the
company has made the 2019 Leading Lights Award finalist
in the Most Innovative Edge Computing Strategy category.

Continuing its involvement in the community, Edgeworx is also announcing
that its founders will be speaking at IoT World and Kubecon Europe. At
IoT World on May 13, Farah Papaioannou will be giving a presentation
called “Exploring
the Trend toward the Edge
” that will cover the business drivers,
technological changes, and global trends that are making edge computing
the next must-have infrastructure. She will discuss the challenges that
make edge computing unique in relation to cloud and data center and will
offer real-world use cases from a variety of industries. Kilton Hopkins,
Edgeworx co-founder and CEO, will participate on May 23 in a Kubecon
panel called “Intro
and Deep Dive: Kubernetes IoT Edge Working Group
” with a series of
experts who will investigate and catalogue challenges encountered when
Kubernetes is deployed in edge and IoT applications.

Edgeworx has been very active these past months, especially in the
Eclipse community, providing a horizontal edge compute platform that
works in any industry and on any device. The company enables developers
to build for the edge, as they can now, with ioFog, easily deploy
advanced AI and machine learning algorithms at the edge to perform tasks
such as real-time video streaming analysis, natural language processing,
streaming analytics, and more.

Jeff Vance, the author of the Network World article, mentions the reason
why Edgeworx was selected for the award: “The complexity of securing and
managing the explosion of connected devices creates a massive
opportunity for open-source, standardized solutions. Just as the
open-source mobile OS Android enabled Google to accelerate its mobile
business, ioFog and Eclipse could make ioFog the default OS of the edge.”

“It is an honor to get this industry recognition, because it proves what
we are seeing already, that the response from the influencers, but also
our customers and partners, has been amazing, and there is a real need
for our platform,” said Farah Papaioannou, co-founder of Edgeworx. “In
the following months, we will be making a few announcements that will
show the customer adoption of our solution and will explain the problems
that we are solving in the field.”
