Afero Collaborates with Murata to Develop Secure Radio Module for Smart Devices.

LOS ALTOS, Calif., Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Today Afero, the IoT platform developer, in collaboration with Murata Manufacturing, announced its development of the ASR-1 module, the central computing device on which Afero is building a secure, end-to-end, Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for the secure connection of every smart device. Joe Britt, the co-founder of smartphone company Danger, is back with a new startup to help manage the billions of devices expected to connect to the Internet of things.Japanese entertainment giant Bandai Namco Studios Inc. (BNSI) will be working with IoT platform provider Afero to incorporate IoT capabilities into future products and games.”We admire Infocom for their ability to provide the best IT systems and connectivity to hospitals and healthcare service providers,” said Joe Britt, CEO of Afero. “Our platform enables connected products and services to improve people’s lives, so we look forward to working with Infocom to deliver a better, smarter healthcare system.” Infocom is focused on pioneering the technologies essential to improving and modernizing healthcare. Led by Joe Britt, formerly an engineering director at Google Android and co-founder of Danger (makers of the T-Mobile Sidekick smartphone that was acquired by Microsoft), the Afero team has spent nearly two years developing a platform that includes integrated hardware, software, and cloud services for IoT connectivity and data analytics.

Afero’s IoT platform incorporates mutual authentication, ensuring all incoming and outgoing data is continuously encrypted and never exchanged without proven identity. Now, the Afero platform will unlock newfound gaming capabilities to take Bandai’s safe, fun, and kid-friendly connected products to the next level. “At BNSI, we continually challenge ourselves to foster dreams and inspire people worldwide. Afero, which officially debuted its platform today, has built a complete IoT platform architecture to secure and integrate virtually any smart product. That platform has to be flexible enough to let developers write code that can handle simple commands to lock a door from a smartphone or complicated one that controls a car’s telematics. Together, these building blocks enable companies and developers to deliver innovations faster to the marketplace by reducing the complexity and providing a secure connection between devices and trusted data in the cloud.

While this explosion in smart devices creates new possibilities for businesses to build breakthrough products that improve people’s lives, the industry is also fragmented and open to security risks. Created by mobile and hardware veterans from Google, Apple, Nest, Amazon, Twitter, and Netflix, Afero is a comprehensive and secure platform for cloud-connected devices in any industry. The solutions Infocom provides also include enterprise management service for mid to large companies and business software such as digital archive system, as well as digital media services to regular consumers with the large share of ebook market.

The team developed advanced, patent-pending authentication and encryption technologies to ensure that no data can be accessed maliciously from any device or gateway point on the platform.

It also has deals already with components maker Murata Manufacturing Co., which produces the module designed to go inside devices, and Qualcomm, which is providing the Internet connectivity for the Afero wireless applications.

Britt, who sold Danger to Google and then worked on its Android operating system, declined to say how much money Afero has raised or who its investors are.
