Frost & Sullivan has announced that Eseye, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, is the European winner of the 2017 Product Leadership Award. The recognition, based on industry analyst research, is a result of the proven power of the Eseye AnyNet Secure™ Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), and its integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents the award to a company that develops visionary and pioneering technology that not only enhances current products but also enables new product and application developments. The award recognises the high market acceptance potential of the recipient’s technological breakthrough.
Through the AnyNet Secure SIM and the integration with AWS, Eseye has demonstrated that the risk and complexity associated with setting up and expanding mid- to large-scale global device deployments (which are often considered a barrier to IoT growth) can be removed.
The award-winning, globally connected SIM allows companies to realise the huge potential of Over-The-Air IoT by easily and securely connecting devices to the Internet and then seamlessly delivering data onto AWS for further configuration and analysis using AWS Console tools. A range of new and enhanced remote management features securely activate, provision, authenticate, and certify devices over-the-air in 79 countries via 235 mobile networks across the globe.
The secure zero-touch management and integration with AWS is delivered by the SIM, giving businesses a proven technology when utilising M2M data. It aims to simplify deployments, drive operational efficiency, and cut expenditure by reducing or removing the need for costly developer teams and hardware. It is also easy to buy and set up with SIMs being sold direct on Amazon.com and cellular connectivity on AWS Marketplace.
Sankara Narayanan, Senior Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said, “The volume of IoT devices is growing rapidly across the world. Frost & Sullivan has determined that over 20 billion connected devices will exist globally by 2020. As the threat and impact of cyber-attacks also continues to grow, the safe and secure management and scaling of IoT devices is therefore critical.”
Julian Hardy, CEO at Eseye, says, “We are delighted that leading analysts at Frost & Sullivan have recognised and share our belief that the AnyNet Secure on AWS is a leading M2M Cellular Connectivity product on the market. For IoT to succeed it has to be secure, scalable, and easy to deploy and we’ve now achieved that. We’d particularly like to thank the team at AWS who have been exemplary in their technical and organisational support and in ensuring delivery to 2market of the AnyNet Secure on AWS Marketplace.”
