[Re-post from www.multos.com] The MULTOS Consortium, a group of international blue chip organisations responsible for the promotion and development of the MULTOS specifications, announced today that Device Authority, a global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT) is developing support for MULTOS to bring secure hardware technology to the IoT.
As billions of consumer and business devices become ever more connected, and as the malware and IT system hacks become increasingly sophisticated with mass disruptive attacks, there has never been a stronger need to help businesses ensure they protect their data, their assets, and their reputations. In this new era, security is fast becoming a key consideration to ensure commercial success and longevity. Root of trust solutions are critical to deliver the protection many IoT businesses require.
Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform will extend the options available for organisations wishing to benefit from a trusted hardware secured IoT device. Solution providers and OEMs can reduce their time to market by leveraging these established, reliable security components which fully integrate with several IoT platforms. Flexibility and security are core benefits which can be leveraged by implementing this combined solution.
“Together, MULTOS and Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform provide a powerful IoT endpoint and device management solution using a root of trust, addressing a wide market of IoT opportunities”, says Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. “We are excited about our new partnership with MULTOS and providing valuable security for their customers deploying IoT solutions.”
Paul Wilson, Commercial Manager of the MULTOS Consortium, comments “MULTOS has an impressive pedigree for securing tokens on the edge of IT systems. It has reached the highest security approvals and has been implemented in over 1 billion devices. A MULTOS secured endpoint in conjunction with Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform, can allow businesses to protect their assets, their services, and their reputations. It is great news that Device Authority will support MULTOS and we look forward to helping clients secure their connected IoT systems.”
