About Siraj

Siraj Technologies Ltd. specializes in Industrial Internet of Things connectivity solutions and products. Our services enable rapid onboarding of IIoT edge devices to a range of cloud platforms, providing device and data owners quick access to cloud tools that maximizes the data’s value.

As a young company established in 2017, we identified that while the IoT field is flooded with application providers, there is a critical gap in services that connect industrial devices to cloud platforms.

We launched our operations by providing services to several companies in the field of IIoT connectivity. Over time we also started to develop our own technology and product to automate the onboarding of edge devices to IoT platforms.
