Last week’s Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles saw the introduction of the Kore One IoT platform and the first two services built on it – SecurityPro and ConnectivityPro.
 
Kore One is an API-based, open-architecture, modular IoT platform that provides a different approach to IoT development. The platform is designed to provide organisations with the infrastructure they need to host existing IoT applications and services, as well as facilitate the quick and efficient introduction of more applications.
 
SecurityPro is a network diagnostic and troubleshooting tool for monitoring and securing IoT connections on a device level. ConnectivityPro is a platform for managing network connectivity from multiple carriers and satellite providers.
 
Kore One acts as the foundation for building additional applications and services in 2020 and beyond, and Kore says it will continue to launch services off the same platform with the objective of being a differentiated, IoT platform player over the coming period.
 
“Kore One, SecurityPro and ConnectivityPro are the result of our significant investment in creating new tools and services to simplify and improve IoT across a range of applications and enhance business performance across industries,” said Romil Bahl, CEO of Kore. “Kore One is designed to enable our customers to quickly and fully capitalise on the limitless opportunities of IoT by ensuring that the services offered are always evolving and feature the latest technologies. We look forward to empowering our customers to rapidly develop new applications on our platform, in addition to bringing our own new services to market beyond SecurityPro and ConnectivityPro.”
 
The Kore One IoT platform delivers technology, tools and services to enable innovation, business agility and speed-to-market for long-term IoT use. Its open, modular and scalable architecture provides a future-proof foundation for services to deploy, manage and scale quickly, easily and cost-effectively. It is designed to offer flexibility and accelerate speed-to-market for IoT services across industries. And it creates the foundation for Kore to provide data-as-a-service (DaaS) providing users with their data, normalised and enriched, securely from their devices.
 
SecurityPro provides network visibility and actionable intelligence to protect IoT devices and data by alerting on potential anomalies and mitigating security risks. This tool helps organisations set rule-based alerts and notifications to gain visibility into unplanned device behaviour, take action more quickly and ultimately resolve issues faster, reduce data overages and billing costs, quickly identify security breaches and mitigate risk, and address vulnerabilities before they become a costly reality.
 
ConnectivityPro effectively manages, monitors and controls IoT network connectivity across multiple carriers and satellite providers delivering a streamlined user interface with service-oriented APIs supporting automation of connectivity management activities; fully-featured provisioning, diagnostics, reporting, support and billing; proactive monitoring in real time to events, usage and costs with rule-based actions and alerts; and integrated, à la carte micro-services supporting components that simplify IoT deployments.
