Device Authority, a pioneer in identity and access management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Medigate, an IoT device security and asset management company dedicated to healthcare, announce their partnership for securing the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). Whether to improve the cybersecurity of IoMT, or directly address other challenges, this partnership delivers Healthcare Delivery Organisations (HDOs) important new integrated capabilities. Explosive spending on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is ushering in a healthcare revolution. And COVID-inspired advances to telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) are compounding the trend. But connected medical progress comes with a price. Increased cyber risks IoMT devices and their ability to connect to Healthcare IT systems have also increased cyber risks IoMT devices and their ability to connect to Healthcare IT systems have also increased cyber risks. They must be effectively addressed, as cyberattacks do not just pose a threat to the financial business interests of the HDO but present potential patient safety risks. The Medigate platform fuses its understanding of clinical workflows with unmatched device profiling capabilities and knowledge of authorised operating requirements. This allows the company to instantly detect anomalous device behaviours and trigger appropriate remediation workflows. It also enables instant threat corelations to the HDO's potentially impacted assets. Device Authority’s KeyScaler™ platform uses patented Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) and PKI Signature+ technology to address the identity access management challenges. KeyScaler is especially effective for medical devices, as it secures the medical devices’ identity and offers an automated approach for registration and authentication. Protecting sensitive data These measures protect sensitive patient data and other information exchanged among a wide range of devices – from smartphones to tablets, to large surgical robots or any other device that leverages standard digital certificate protocols. This partnership also opens the possibilities of retrofitting Device Authority's KeyScaler to legacy devices. This has the potential to deliver significant ROI, cost savings and help HDO's more rapidly comply with new and pending security guidance, directives, and regulations. Together we have a robust, secure end-to-end solution for healthcare providers" “We are delighted to partner and collaborate with Medigate who focus on the healthcare and medical industry which has always been a core focus for Device Authority. Together we have a robust, secure end-to-end solution for healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers solving detection, patient safety, compliance, and data security challenges,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. Remaining clinically focused “The COVID-19 epidemic showed us the power of health IT, but it also reinforced how critically important it is to manage and protect the devices used to facilitate care– both inside and outside the four walls of the hospital. By integrating Medigate technology with Device Authority’s platform, we’re able to offer capabilities that are uniquely built to meet the NIST functions of Identify, Detect and Protect, while remaining clinically focused and attuned to medical workflows.” “We’re thrilled to partner with Device Authority and for the opportunity to leverage their best-in-class solutions to protect patients, clinicians, hospital leaders, and all others who utilise the IoMT on a daily basis,” said Stephan Goldberg, VP of Systems Engineering at Medigate.
Device Authority, a global front-runner in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced KeyScaler for Azure Sphere in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Azure Sphere brings together Microsoft’s expertise in cloud, software and silicon to provide a security foundation and connectivity to create intelligent secure products and accelerate the adoption of IoT at scale. Device Authority’s KeyScaler for Azure Sphere software platform has the ability to leverage this initial security foundation by enabling Azure Sphere devices to connect to KeyScaler and provide them with operational certificates to automate and secure device enrolment to the Azure IoT platform. Automate certificate management Device Authority continues to see an increase in the demand for security and management integrations with Microsoft Azure when customers are building and deploying their IoT strategy. KeyScaler for Azure Sphere has the required functionality to automate certificate management for Azure Sphere devices. These devices need to connect to different constituents including Microsoft and non-Microsoft assets in operations. KeyScaler is a key component in this ecosystem to extend the trust and automation and if required can support certificate-based authentication for any additional IoT applications. “We are delighted to launch our KeyScaler for Azure Sphere offering on Azure Marketplace today. We have worked closely with the Azure Sphere team to help solve their customer’s challenges with security lifecycle management, and now customers and partners can consume KeyScaler for Azure Sphere directly through Azure Marketplace as they develop their IoT projects,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.
Device Authority, a global provider of identity and access management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced the latest version of its KeyScaler platform which includes enhanced device connectivity, secure data storage and support for Microsoft Azure Sphere. In today’s evolving technology-driven world, security needs to be architected into IoT devices from the moment of inception and requires a robust foundation to deliver secure updates throughout the device lifecycle. Devices must have a strong Root of Trust (RoT) in the processors/systems and a mechanism to deliver signed and encrypted images either for production and/or for ongoing updates. This will enable secure production, protect against IP theft, detect device cloning, and help mitigate security breaches. Intelligent secure products Azure Sphere brings together the best of Microsoft’s expertise in cloud, software and silicon to provide a security foundation and connectivity to create intelligent secure products and accelerate the adoption of IoT at scale. Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform has the ability to leverage this initial security foundation by enabling Azure Sphere devices to connect to KeyScaler and provide them with operational certificates to automate and secure device enrolment to any IoT platform. Today’s KeyScaler release builds further on our technology integrations and support for Microsoft" This extends the security suite to Azure with connectors to HSMs, CAs and IoT platforms for secure trusted IoT solutions. “We’re delighted to work with the Azure Sphere team to help solve their customer’s challenges with security lifecycle management. Today’s KeyScaler release builds further on our technology integrations and support for Microsoft - now with functionality to automate certificate management for Azure Sphere devices." Access controller solution "These devices need to connect to different constituents including Microsoft and non-Microsoft assets in operations. KeyScaler is a key component in this ecosystem to extend the trust and automation required,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. Additionally, this KeyScaler release also expands on the previously announced HSM Access Controller solution with a secure data repositories feature. This enables customers to centrally and securely store sensitive data and use policies to control access to that data. This release also includes control panel updates, improved device connectivity support, along with new logging and reporting features.
