September 5, 2017 – LONDON, UK and FREMONT, USA - Device Authority, a global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), and MultiTech Systems, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, today announce their technology partnership, which introduces robust security options for customers utilizing MultiConnect® Conduit™ IoT gateways and MultiConnect® rCell 100 Series routers. The partnership provides existing and future customers with access to Device Authority’s KeyScaler™ Platform including automated, secure gateway registration and provisioning, credential management (PKI Certificates and Passwords) and, in the future, encrypted data protection during data transfer between gateways and the cloud.
KeyScaler™ uses unique patented Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) technology and provides a strong root of trust, securing the MultiTech Conduit gateways’ identity and offers an automated approach for registering and authenticating gateways to KeyScaler™. Data is encrypted from the gateway, in transit and persists encrypted at rest, defined and controlled by customer policy.
“It is crucial to be able to trust the device and specifically our gateways and to provide additional IoT security services to our customers. Integrating Device Authority KeyScaler™ platform with our DeviceHQ device management service enables MultiTech with a new set of IoT security services to address the increasing IoT security concerns of our enterprise customers,” said Stefan Lindvall, CEO of MultiTech. “Devices used in industrial IoT solutions across industry verticals must be secured from the cloud to the edge in remote locations over private or public networks. Device Authority’s KeyScaler™ platform addresses the security concerns that any industry would have by providing Identity and Access Management (IAM) for IoT devices.”
KeyScaler™ delivers automated provisioning, encryption and delivery of PKI certificates to each enabled device after device authentication. Through unique Automated Password Management technology, account passwords are automatically set and managed, including automatically changing default passwords.
“KeyScaler™ will be integrated as part of MultiTech DeviceHQ to deliver credential management to their deployed gateways.” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. “We’re delighted to formally progress our partnership and announce our 5-year contract with MultiTech, to continue solving IoT security challenges.”
The solution will be demonstrated live at the MultiTech exhibit at Mobile World Congress Americas, Sept. 12-14 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center North Hall, booth #N.252.
