The patented TOSIBOX technology is based on operational encrypted point-to-point connectivity. The company is focused heavily on software development and with this update offers an entirely software-based solution comprised of TOSIBOX Virtual Central Lock with support for AWS and Azure, and the recently launched TOSIBOX Lock for Container that enables secure connectivity inside any OT device. The unique TOSIBOX technology provides two-way communication, enabling secure data acquisition and easy remote maintenance with the same solution.
“Our solution automates the configuration and cybersecurity of small- and large-scale OT networks. We are long past proof of concept with successful OT networks and cases in over 100 countries and being adopted by the Fortune 500. Moving away from data centers and toward the cloud is the future for many of our customers, and Tosibox wants to support the growing need for two-way data collection in the cloud. This is a cutting-edge solution for companies looking to be the front runners in their industry through a way of working simpler and smarter,” says Jarno Limnéll, CEO at Tosibox.
Several customers have already piloted the Azure support feature in various verticals such as retail, industrial and building automation.

Cloud adoption has increased remarkably in recent years and, according to RightScale, 96 percent of all companies were estimated to use cloud services already in 2018. Gartner forecasts the worldwide public cloud services market to grow 17% in 2020 to total $266.4 billion, up from $227.8 billion in 2019.
