The company wants to help organisations create trusted products and experiences in the digital environment
Entrust Datacard has launched the Entrust Datacard ioTrust security solution to help support digital business by providing trusted interactions between “people, systems and things”.
According to the transaction technology solutions provider, ioTrust delivers a secure and trusted digital infrastructure that safeguards data between devices, sensors, and backend platforms connected within an Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.
By applying digital identities managed through definable policy, the solution allows companies to do business in new ways and create the trusted products and experiences that these environments demand.
“Unlike existing solutions that have been simply repurposed from IT environments, Entrust Datacard has spent several years working with customers and ecosystem partners to design a solution that recognises the unique needs of IoT environments and incorporates sound security practices,” said Josh Jabs, vice president of PKI and IoT for Entrust Datacard.
“We’ve created a solution that allows organisations to enhance their service offerings, improve the user experience and enable new business models while leveraging a trusted infrastructure.”
With capabilities such as identity, authentication and authorisation, credential lifecycle management, and secure communications the ioTrust helps organisations securely connect the people, applications and devices that power the connected world.
The solution speeds deployment timelines, allowing organisations to more quickly realise business value in areas such as process optimisation and automation, supply chain visibility, and delivery of new services.
It is designed to secure IoT data across a variety of industries including industrial control systems, automotive, telecommunications and manufacturing supply chains, said Entrust Datacard.
The ioTrust security solution provides a trusted Internet of Things by:
Enabling a secure and trusted ecosystem of people, applications and things throughout the IoT value chain;
Providing greater visibility into the security of the supply-chain, spanning from device manufacturer to the final product;
Reducing time-to-market and total cost of ownership by helping organisations to develop solutions based on heterogeneous device categories and profiles;
Empowering organisations to leverage existing infrastructures and devices, while supporting new products and services without the need to “rip and replace”;
Facilitating the secure and timely delivery of data and outcomes generated by trusted people, applications and things to the value-creation engine.
