Device Authority releases new version of IoT security platform with support for Microsoft Azure Sphere and security lifecycle management

Device Authority, a global leader in identity and access management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), today 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.

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. 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. 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. The release will be available to existing customers from Monday, September 21st.
