Afero Becomes First IoT Platform to Sign CISA’s Secure by Design Pledge

Commitment to the CISA Pledge Underscores Afero’s Dedication to Delivering Enterprise-grade Security Across the Entire IoT Supply Chain

Afero today announced it has become the first secure IoT platform company to sign the Secure by Design pledge from the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). This significant step highlights Afero’s dedication to delivering enterprise-grade security for IoT endpoints, including devices without enough memory and processing power to run traditional operating systems.

“Our mission at Afero has always been to enable connected devices to be smart and secure,” said Joe Britt, CEO and Co-founder of Afero. “By signing the CISA Secure by Design pledge, we are reinforcing our commitment to leading the IoT industry with robust security measures that extend all the way to the endpoint, even the most constrained devices. This pledge aligns perfectly with our core values and ongoing efforts to safeguard the IoT supply chain.”

The CISA Secure by Design pledge is a voluntary commitment to improve the security of enterprise software products and services, including on-premises software, cloud services, and software as a service (SaaS). While the pledge does not currently include physical products such as IoT devices and consumer products, Afero has been committed since its founding to extending this same secure-by-design philosophy down to physical products such as high-volume consumer devices.

“The surging demand for connected devices will make IoT security more critical than ever,” said Bret Jordan, Afero’s Chief Security Strategist. “Afero is at the forefront of securing this hyperconnected edge, ensuring every device, no matter how small, remains secure. As the first IoT platform player to sign the CISA pledge, we’re demonstrating Afero’s unwavering dedication to this cause.”

Afero is a leading PaaS for IoT manufacturers and retail brands. Utilizing enterprise-grade, end-to-end security and data privacy through the entire supply chain, Afero provides comprehensive device security — from the factory floor to the consumer’s home. Afero’s unique technology embeds security into each device that cannot be disabled. With more than 120 IoT patents, Afero has revolutionized the IoT device onboarding process, enabling devices to be securely connected in seconds.
