Making Internet of SECURE Things
Our primary goal is to provide a secure end to end IoT solution. Whether it be design, deployment or custom engineering services we strive to provide the best solution that you can get in the market. We also make the solution state of the art and leave the future options for scalability and expansion. This saves a lot of trouble and operational costs in the long run.
Industry Experts have been saying that we are headed into a IoT nightmare as far as cybersecurity is concerned. It is good to have things connected, but security shouldn’t take a backseat to functionality. We fill in the important gap of evaluating, securing, and certifying a secure IoT system for you and your customers.
Our MonGuard Platform provides a secure, convenient cloud-based monitoring and work order management system. It provides easy dashboards to visualize all your devices along with the security conformance of the system in real-time.
Maturity: More than 6 years of successful functioning in the field.
Customers: 40 plus current customers – municipalities, cities, and companies
Customer Satisfaction: We never lost a single customer, ever.
Our “secret”: Smooth operations, no complaints. Immediate response to requests for new features and resolving any issues. And providing a platform that actually eases operational headaches and provides value.
Our “unique” approach: We treat you how we liked to be treated; with respect, courtesy and a timely response.
Our six year field tested cloud based monitoring tool lets keep track of IoT devices in real-time. It monitors the devices and provides location based information of the deployment. It gives the state of the system including the smallest devices deployed in the field.
Detailed real-time data of the distributed system is delivered to the appropriate personnel to give a realistic picture of the health of the system at all times. If any device or sensor is missing or misbehaves on the distributed system it sends a notification to those signed up for the alerts.
Work-order Process Control
Also, it creates a work order and delivers to the maintenance engineer without involving any intermediate phone calls so the problem is fixed as quickly as possible. The work order completion process is registered at all stages, including the photographs taken by the maintenance engineer at the site on the equipment.
It allows for various forms of entering the data into the system. Including the work order mobile platform that allows to note the appropriate information such as the steps that are being taken to fix the device (direct text entry), photographs, bar code scanning, etc. Voice to text conversion is also available for maintenance staff to enter data conveniently.
Hence it allows for a smooth operation of deployment, maintenance, and work-flow processes.
The advantages of a world-class IoT Platform for your business:
- Improves efficiency of your processes and services
- Improves your product and service differentiation in the market
- Improves productivity gains and reduces costs
- Improves transparency and monitoring of your business processes
Security and Conformance
The MonGuard not only allows one to see the health of the system and geolocate the devices — by knowing which devices are operational and which are currently down — it also allows keep track of many details of the device itself. This information is usually spread out in the organization and is not always handy.
The date the device was installed, the version of hardware and software on it, how long ago was it serviced, the previous problems with the system, the technicians who installed it and fixed it, the performance history, etc. are readily available.
Unauthorized access or update, etc. are blocked by MonGuard. Such attacks are noted and informed. Conformance in the way of updates are kept so we know in real-time how many devices are compliant to a particular security standard.
The version control and statistics on the system give an overview of the system conformance to security conformance standards and other standards.

End to end solutions
With the help of a wide range of expertize and partners in the field of IoT we provide end to end solutions in IoT for various sectors. Some of these sectors are listed below.
- Industrial IoT
- Smart city solutions
- Energy sector
IoT, Cyber and Embedded device security have become very important with major incidents happening ever so often and uncounted number of smaller incidents around the globe everyday. The reason behind those incidents are largely due to not much emphasis on security by the development centers themselves. The products and solutions need, at least, a level of security defined, implemented and endorsed before they are deployed. If proper emphasis was laid during development, with checklists and protocols a level of security can be provided to the customers. Proper procedures should also be put in place for updates, patches and maintenance during the entire life of the product and service.
Since, many of the current vendors aren’t following any aspect of security in their products and services, any level of security offered — with proper diligence and security certification — to the security aware customer, your product and service can have a competitive edge in the market. Despite that it would be the right thing to do in providing the highest security possible to the customer because they depend on our product; after all we as a consumer wouldn’t want to buy a product for our own needs if it has not been properly designed, developed and tested with security in mind.
We list some of the loses we face due to security vulnerabilities. Remember that there are real consequences to our businesses when these vulnerabilities are exploited by bedroom hackers, professional criminals or state-sponsored hackers.
Our customers and consumers may face anywhere from inconvenience and irritation and infringement of privacy to loss of life, money, time, property, health, relationships, etc.
Also, there are others who depend on our products and services, our vendors, operators and suppliers. When a security hole happens they and us face some severe consequences. They may include: Loss of trust, damage to reputation, compromised intellectual property, financial loss and/or persecution.
But the overwhelming factor is providing the best product and service we can provide; in the process if we outwit our competition and gain a competitive edge in the market, it would be even better. Whatever our motivation, we cannot ignore this important aspect that people who depend on us expect.

Our Commitment & Involvement
Proud and active FOUNDER MEMBER of IoTSF
The Internet of Things (IoT) increasingly appears to be the next great technology revolution. It is expected to affect everything from healthcare delivery, to how food is produced, to how we work, to all forms of transportation and communication, and to virtually all forms of automation. With that said, the IoT will impact everyone, and in multiple ways. With a technology revolution with such a large impact on society, it is imperative that IoT-based systems can be trusted. This means that they should exhibit secure, reliable, and private behaviours, as well as many other attributes associated with quality.
Internet of Things Security Foundation (IoTSF) was set-up to bring professional responsibility to the commitment of security involving IoT. With the exponential growth of IoT deployments the security related issues have become even more critical. We see that companies are more concentrated on the features and abilities of their products rather than the misuse and breaking of their systems. Such compromises in their systems will cause loses for both the companies and customers. In the way of inconvenience, loss of privacy, money and time for the customers while the companies stand to lose millions of dollars in loss of business, prosecution and company reputation. It is high time the companies with IoT products realize that security in the IoT space is just as important, if not more, than computer and physical security. We are here to help who care for the security of their products.
Aggi Technologies L.L.C. is proud to be a ‘founder member’ of IoTSF. Together we plan to bring commitment, innovation and professionalism to this critical area of security for the IoT technologies.
The goals of IoTSF is the mission we have of making it safer to connect by promoting security excellence. IoTSF was formed in recognition of the security threats that exit today and also the emerging challenges that lie ahead as use cases evolve.
