Cicer One Technologies Inc., a provider of data privacy solutions, and AVIDRONE Aerospace Inc., a manufacturer of commercial and industrial drones, have announced a new partnership to alleviate security risks surrounding cloud-based data capture services.
Under the partnership between the two Ontario-based companies, AVIDRONE’s proprietary flight control and mission planning software is combined with Cicer One’s point-to-point, globally accessible information management system. Together, according to the companies, they deliver a secure, fully private flight control and data capture solution for drones.
“Third-party cloud services have become the standard for internet-enabled devices in the drone industry,” says Bob Embleton, CEO of Cicer One Technologies Inc. “This exposes sensitive mission data to third parties for access and monitoring. By partnering with AVIDRONE, we can provide a seamless product solution for their customers. Drone operators will own and control their private data, keeping sensitive information out of the hands of third-party service providers.”
“We realize that government agencies, large enterprises and industrial users of drones need to keep their data and flight missions 100 percent in their control from end to end,” adds Scott Gray, founder and CEO of AVIDRONE Aerospace Inc. “By partnering with Cicer One, we are able to create a data privacy solution for UAS vehicles that no cloud-based control for drones can achieve.”
