By Johan De Mulder

Dutch technology giant Gemalto has unveiled a new offering that is set to strengthen security for customers in the smart energy market.

The end-to-end solution is designed to protect connected energy assets and the enormous amount of data generated by the rapidly-growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices utilised in the industry.

Fighting against the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks, Gemalto's offering establishes end-to-end security between energy meters, data concentrators and energy companies' back-end systems through seamless connectivity solutions, secure digital identities and security lifecycle management for smart meters.
