Shares of this penny stock exploded on March 28 thanks to some early morning news. The company announced the launch of a new version of its technology. They said it was designed for “industrial internet of things” – IIOT.
“Today, Zero Trust vendors mainly target humans, but they are exceeded by the number of applications and IOT devices trying to access backend systems and we haven’t seen Zero Trust vendors trying to tackle this issue.
