The lab is an extension of the ongoing work that Subex is undertaking in securing the critical public infrastructure of Florence.
Bangalore-based telecom analytics solutions provider Subex has established an internet of things (IoT) security lab in the United States.
The company announced in a news release that the new lab in Florence, Arizona is an extension of its ongoing work in securing the town’s critical public infrastructure.
The lab will serve to raise awareness on cybersecurity issues for citizens of Florence, lawmakers, businesses and other stakeholders, the company said.
The lab is comprised of physical and virtual devices, connected networks and systems, and subsystems that raise awareness of various aspects of cybersecurity.
“I am confident that this lab will prove to be immensely useful in raising awareness on cybersecurity across Arizona,” said Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Subex.
Strengthening the partnership
Through an earlier agreement, Subex is already providing end-to-end cybersecurity to the town to detect, repel and remediate advanced threats to its most basic and vital technological systems.
The company plans to update the lab to reflect changes in the threat environment, security practices and strategies, device architecture and network changes and more to stay relevant to all stakeholders.
“We expect the lab will be a huge success with the young people of our community. The lab will also provide them with an understanding of how smart sensors can improve and enhance their lives,” said Brent Billingsley, Town Manager of Florence, Arizona.
Subex said that it will also continue to be the cybersecurity partner of Florence when the town launches its smart cities projects.
