Secure IoT Accelerator Program

L-SPARK, Canada’s leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) accelerator, has partnered with TELUS, BlackBerry Limited and Solace to launch the Secure IoT Accelerator program to scale Canadian Internet of Things (IoT) ventures for the global market.

With the global IoT market predicted to swell to USD $1.1 trillion by 2021, more complex applications and the need for greater security are driving innovation within the industry, a trend the Secure IoT Accelerator aims to address.

The Secure IoT Accelerator program will support its portfolio companies in developing innovative IoT products and services that leverage the combined capabilities of TELUS Global Connectivity and IoT Cybersecurity services, BlackBerry’s secure operating system, and Solace’s industry-leading data movement capabilities. Woven together, these technologies will enable development of out-of-the-box products and services featuring built-in, end-to-end security, streamlined device management and end user managed access and provisioning.
