Nashville, TN – Modern Radio, an IoT company, wins first place and $10,000 for the best utilization of the Sertainty Self-Protecting-Data technology in the ATP Cyber HealthTech 2020 Global Innovation Challenge.

Sertainty recently partnered with Atlanta Tech Park and sponsored the Developers’ Challenge at the ATP HealthTech 2020 Conference on August 6. Seven finalists competed for an opportunity to win $10,000.  Challenge companies included Modern Radio, Hytch Rewards, ADS Graphics Firm, NuGo Tech, Knightly, Karm, and Digital Droplet.

Modern Radio, the first-place challenge winner, engineered a solution that provides organizations and individuals with peace of mind in a post-Covid economy.  Their “Smart Face Mask” provides professional protection and next-gen data collection by incorporating an environmental condition sensor to monitor and record air quality concentration, body temperature, sneezing, coughing, breathing, etc. The Smart Mask, which is also accompanied by a mobile app, will send alerts when environmental conditions become critical and inform users when face masks are required.

“Covid has presented challenges that have caused us all to adjust. The Smart Mask represents an opportunity for us to showcase our technology at a time when a solution is really needed,” says Laron Walker, CTO of Modern Radio. “We are excited that we were able so share this technology during the healthcare challenge.  We are also looking forward to the opportunity to work with Sertainty and find ways to leverage their technology to best serve customers.”

By incorporating Sertainty Self-Protecting-Data technology, Modern Radio was able to secure sensitive data in-flight, eliminate man-in-the-middle attacks, ensure data integrity, and enable a HIPAA compliant data transfer. You can learn more about the Smart Mask and Self-Protecting-Data by registering for an upcoming webinar presented by Sertainty here.
