Device Authority, a globally renowned company in identity and access management (IAM) solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced its latest major software release, which includes KeyScaler Edge software solution.
The current global market is driving a more mature Edge computing model, with localised AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) becoming more mainstream. However, no solution exists in the market, to address localised Edge gateway IoT security services.
Automation for efficiency in Edge IoT deployments
Organisations require automation for Edge deployments, in order to drive efficiency at IoT scale. This includes:
- Security lifecycle management
- Device bound identity
- Leaf device authentication and authorisation to edge gateways
- Zero touch on-boarding and registration
- Automated credential management
Security compliance and regulatory adherence
Safety, confidentiality, data theft/privacy, brand reputation and revenue protection is important for edge deployments
Additionally, organisations still need to meet compliance and regulatory adherence, for private local network deployments. Safety, confidentiality, data theft/privacy, brand reputation and revenue protection are important for edge deployments.
“We’re delighted to bring KeyScaler Edge to the market and help our customers, with their IoT edge deployments. Our BETA programme has been a success within healthcare, retail and transport sectors, and we’re regularly speaking with companies, who have experienced similar challenges and see KeyScaler Edge as the solution,” said Darron Antill, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Device Authority.
KeyScaler Edge is the first device, identity-centric IAM (identity and access management) solution, to address the complex end-to-end challenges of IoT security lifecycle management, at the Edge. It is a lightweight version of KeyScaler, which is created specifically for Edge nodes, with the ability to register, authenticate and provision certificates, and tokens, to devices in the local network, independent of an available internet connection.
“KeyScaler Edge gives technical, security and operations teams, the confidence that their IoT devices won’t lose robust security when no connection to the Cloud is available,” said James Penney, the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Device Authority.
Central visibility of Edge
James Penney adds, “We’ve developed the functionality to support any public and private CA, as well as provide central reporting and management of all certificates, and central visibility of Edge, and Leaf Node relationships. As Edge becomes more mainstream, customers are asking for online and offline capability, and for KeyScaler to solve the associated security challenges.”
