Sierra Monitor Corporation Selected by CIO Review as One of 20 Most Promising IoT Solution Providers
MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Sierra Monitor Corporation (OTCQB: SRMC), a provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions that connect and protect high-value infrastructure assets, today announced that CIO Review (www.cioreview.com) has chosen SRMC for inclusion in the magazine's prestigious Top 20 IoT Solution Provider list for 2015 (http://m2m.cioreview.com/client/2015/iot/sierra.html). The selection is based on the company's ability to address a key challenge faced by CIOs looking to take advantage of IoT within their enterprise, namely integrating traditional Informational Technology (IT) that CIOs know well, with IoT-specific Operational Technology (OT) that CIOs are less familiar with. CIO Review recognized the company's FieldServer protocol gateway as a critical tool for integrators to bridge IT and OT, and also recognized the company's Sentry IT fire and gas system as an outstanding example of a converged IT/OT system.
The annual list of companies is selected by a panel of experts and members of CIO Review's editorial board. "Sierra Monitor Corporation has been on our radar for some time for stirring a revolution in the IoT space, and we are happy to showcase them this year due to their continuing excellence in enabling top-notch IoT applications," said Jeevan George, Managing Editor, CIO Review. "Sierra Monitor Corporation's solutions continued to break new ground within the past year, benefiting its customers around the globe, and we're excited to have them featured on our top companies list."
"Sierra Monitor Corporation is honored to be recognized by CIO Review's panel of experts and thought leaders," said Varun Nagaraj, President and CEO, Sierra Monitor Corporation. "We believe that IT/OT integration is a fertile area for further innovation in areas such field device -- cloud integration, secure management, and distributed control that splits and synchronizes control policies between field devices and cloud platforms. These innovations are required to accelerate the adoption of IIoT applications. We are looking forward to helping our customers take full advantage of the IIoT by introducing products that realize this vision in 2016."
