Datek Next, a Norwegian consultancy service provider within secure product and system development and Nemko have entered into a collaboration with the purpose of increasing cyber security of Internet of Things (IoT).
Nemko and Datek Next have, for a long time, observed cyber security challenges, including compliance issues arising from a general lack of awareness and focus from both manufacturers and users. The purpose of the strategic collaboration between Nemko and Datek Next is therefore to increase awareness, and thereby also security, through knowledge sharing with consumers and manufacturers and through the complimentary provision of each company’s independent services.
“Our customers will benefit from this collaboration because together we can offer them a total package: everything from the design phase to a ready-made product certified with international approvals.,” said Per Ove Øyberg, Nemko Group President and CEO.
Complimentary but independent services
The services that Nemko and Datek Next will provide through their collaboration will be complementary but independent services.
Nemko works primarily as an independent third-party, providing services within product assessments and certifications against standards and regulatory requirements nationally and internationally. Nemko does not provide consultancy services on solutions so whenever a customer faces an incompliance with their products, Nemko as a third party cannot provide the technical solutions.
Datek Next deliver customized support to customers on their electronics and software development to ensure the products meet the requirements and standards for cyber security. Datek was the first in Norway to obtain a cyber security certification for their product, Eva Hub.
Per Berg, Managing Director of Datek Next, says: “We have a long experience in developing products within hardware and software and we use this experience to help our customers develop products, according to this new standard within in cybersecurity.’’
