Prague, Czech Republic & Singapore – [02/01/2024]
i46 s.r.o., a Czech cybersecurity startup, and Fly Pipper Consulting Group Pte. Ltd., a multi-disciplines consulting firm based in Singapore with focus areas on Cybersecurity, AI/ML, Go-To-Market, Talent Management and HR Strategy, today announced a strategic partnership to help Singapore IoT manufacturers navigate the challenges of the EU’s Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) and ensure uninterrupted access to the European market.
The newly formed alliance combines i46’s cutting-edge CRA compliance software and EU-authorized representative services with Fly Pipper’s deep expertise in the Singapore cybersecurity landscape and its leading market actors. This powerful synergy will empower Singapore companies to meet the stringent requirements of the Cyber Resilience Act with ease and confidence.
i46’s flagship software simplifies CRA compliance with a comprehensive suite of features, including:• Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) creation: Generating a detailed inventory of all software components within an IoT device, crucial for vulnerability identification and patching.
• Device penetration detection: Proactively identifying and mitigating potential security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers.
• Handling of reporting requirements and cybersecurity assessment
Beyond software, i46 also acts as an EU-authorized representative, fulfilling the legal obligations of Singapore companies under the Cyber Resilience Act by acting as their official point of contact with European authorities. This eliminates the need for Singapore companies to establish costly subsidiaries within the EU.
Fly Pipper’s role in the partnership is multifaceted. Leveraging their extensive experience in the Singaporean market, they will help i46 raise awareness among Singapore IoT manufacturers about the upcoming CRA requirements and their potential impact on EU market access.
Further, Fly Pipper consultants will provide strategic guidance to help Singapore companies navigate the complexities of the CRA compliance process and offer localized support throughout the implementation of i46’s software and EU-authorized representative services.
“The Cyber Resilience Act presents both challenges and opportunities for Singapore IoT companies,” said Erel Rosenberg, CEO of i46. “Through our partnership with Fly Pipper, we aim to empower Singapore manufacturers to not only comply with the CRA but also leverage it as a competitive advantage, demonstrating their commitment to building secure and trustworthy products.”
Kok Rie Ooi, Managing Partner of Fly Pipper, added, “We are excited to partner with i46 and offer their industry-leading CRA compliance solutions to our clients in Singapore. This partnership represents a significant step forward in ensuring the continued success of Singapore IoT companies in the European market.“
