Keep IoT devices off the public internet

IoT devices on the public internet are not secure. Build reliable IoT security and eliminate the risk of cyberattacks by connecting your devices directly to your private corporate network with Telnyx IoT SIMs (available in triple-size SIM cards and embedded MFF2 form factors) and Private Wireless Gateways.


Mitigate risk and limit attack surface

Isolating IoT devices on a private network isolates them from the large attack surface of the public internet.
