Automated compliance control 

ONEKEY aims to simplify and accelerate the review and management of existing and future cybersecurity and compliance product requirements for manufacturers. 

ONEKEY automatically checks and identifies critical security vulnerabilities in embedded software, especially in Internet-of-Things devices, and monitors and manages them throughout the entire product development cycle. To do this, it also breaks down binary codes using a patent-pending, proprietary technology, scans the broken-down software for vulnerabilities and prioritises the scan results. With the new Compliance Wizard TM, manufacturers are able to quickly and simply check current and future legal compliance requirements such as IEC62443, EU Cyber Resilience Act, and more, manage them online in dialogue and monitor them fully automatically. The integrated software supply chain analysis (SBOM) also identifies software components in minutes. 

The ONEKEY platform is available online worldwide. International companies from the manufacturing, automotive, telecommunications, and infrastructure sectors, among others, are already utilising the capabilities of the automated testing, management, and monitoring of their smart products.
