Bayshore Networks, the leading provider of cyber protection for industrial infrastructure, announced that it is a founding member of EdgeX Foundry, which launched today.

Hosted by The Linux Foundation, EdgeX Foundry is an open source project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing.   EdgeX Foundry will create an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates secure enterprise and industrial IoT solutions that can be easily scaled.

“Secure edge computing has emerged as a complicated but critical element driving the realization of industrial IoT,” said Ram Boreda, VP Product Management at Bayshore Networks. “Bayshore is partnering with Yokogawa, along with Foghorn, Telit, and Microsoft in developing their innovative Industrial IoT architecture, where cyber protection is proving critical. We believe EdgeX Foundry can become a catalyst for even further innovation in industrial markets, by simplifying interconnection of edge devices, and are thrilled to contribute our cyber protection expertise to this new open-source initiative as a founding member.”

"Our goal is to accelerate enterprise IoT deployments by delivering interoperability at the edge through a common open framework,” said Philip DesAutels, Senior Director of IoT with The Linux Foundation. “We are so excited to have Bayshore Networks as a member to help us grow the EdgeX ecosystem and build a secure framework that benefits the entire IoT community."

The announcement was made at Hannover Messe, the world’s leading industrial event, being held this week in Hannover, Germany. Bayshore’s Industrial Cyber Protection Platform and EdgeX will be on display in their respective kiosks at the Industrial Internet Consortium Pavilion (Hall 8, Stand C24). Additionally, Bayshore executives will present throughout the week in Hall 8, Stand D19.
