The intelligence and connectivity of industrial devices is changing faster than ever. For example, electric power meters, valves, smart sensors, surveillance cameras, and temperature controllers contain more and more software, as well as connectivity. Typical forecasts predict that the number of installed IoT devices will easily surpass 20 Billion by 2020. However, attention to cyber security and the automation of device management is quite often not getting enough attention in the product development phase of these devices. The fundamental problem of Industrial IoT is that everything is connected to internet, but very little is done to maintain deployed hardware
Capricode's SyncShield product addresses these challenges by bringing a proper tool set for securing, monitoring and managing device fleets at field over their entire life cycle. SyncShield acts as a glue between industrial IoT systems and adds integration points in the often-challenging puzzle of IoT device management. Our advanced technology enables and supports the growth of digitalization.

SyncShield offers a single control point for connected connected devices with comprehensive tools to manage, monitor and secure them. With SyncShield it is possible to reduce costs of initial deployment, onsite support and maintenance costs, and increase customer satisfaction. This can also enable new business cases, such as predictive maintenance.
From a technology perspective we offer:
Scales to millions of devices
Provides device policy enforcement controls
Organizes everything in to a hierarchical device tree
Proper tools for comprehensive Over-the-Air (OTA) management for device fleets over their entire life cycle
IoT platforms are an essential part of modern IoT applications as well as data gathering and analysis. SyncShield is easy to integrate seamlessly into any of these platform to reduce the need for costly custom development work. Therefore, we see Capricode as a part of all major IoT platform ecosystems.
We've given special attention to cyber security monitoring and control features in SyncShield. It contains multiple layers of cyber security controls, built in to the product at a device level, with connectivity and back-end security. In addition, it is easy to integrate advanced 3rd party threat protection solutions to work seamlessly together with SyncShield.
SyncShield's user interface was designed to give administrators an easy-to-use tool for all aspects of the system, but the beauty of the solution is the full integration API's: everything that users can do in the user interface can also be done over the API. This approach gives our customers the freedom to choose how much integration is necessary, and how much automation will go together with other back-end systems.
Use case example:
Capricode's SyncShield deployment secures and boosts adoption of smart electricity meters globally.
Smart meters are growing rapidly in numbers all around the world and there is an urgent need in Europe to manage the hundreds of millions of smart meters deployed around the continent. SyncShield offers a comprehensive management, monitoring and a security solution for the next generation smart meters. Syncshield's policy automation, the capacity to manage hundreds of millions of devices, and the ability to secure these devices against cyber security threats, brings huge financial savings, and alleviates pressure from power companies to micromanage their hardware fleets.
