Data security and privacy ensured

Data security is a crucial component for any IoT system. The system architecture was specifically designed to protect the privacy of consumers. Data security is established by two ways: (I) working in an industry-grade security setup and (II) minimizing data set to transmit to our IoT backend.

Security architecture
  • Cloud system hosted in Germany, applying all German Data Protection Laws
  • Supporting closed communication setups, with no data transmitted through unsecure networks
  • SSL secured communication and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), similar to PGP
Minimizing data
  • Raw sensor data is preprocessed on the device, so only high-level, use case relevant data is sent to backend
  • Data sets are being deleted as soon as possible on devices and backend to help preventing data leaks
