London, UK – 17th April 2018 – 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), has joined as a Partner Member.
As a member, Device Authority will participate in the MULTOS Business and Technical Advisory Groups which will allow them to contribute towards the development and growth of MULTOS whilst benefiting from the Consortium’s marketing, technical, and networking resources with members that span the digital security and smart device industries.
With increasing connectivity established for consumer and business IoT devices, the cyber security risk also continues to increase. The need for robust digital security to help businesses ensure they protect their data, their assets, and their reputations is growing. Root of trust solutions such as MULTOS are critical to deliver the protection many IoT businesses require.
Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform extends 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.
“Working with the MULTOS Consortium and technology, Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform with PKI Signature+ authentication can provide a powerful IoT endpoint and device management solution using a hardware root of trust, addressing a wide market of IoT opportunities”, said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. “We are excited to develop our new partnership with the MULTOS Consortium and provide valuable security for customers deploying IoT solutions.”
Paul Wilson, Commercial Manager of the MULTOS Consortium said “It is a real pleasure to welcome Device Authority to the growing MULTOS Consortium and eco-system. Since we first announced a collaborative venture with Device Authority back in 2017, it has been clear to see the potential mutual value they can offer. A MULTOS secured endpoint in conjunction with Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform, can allow businesses to protect their assets, their services, and their reputations. As security becomes an increasing concern for connected IoT systems a stronger partnership between Device Authority and the MULTOS technology and community is a positive step forward to helping protect client’s devices and solutions”.
