Entrust and Device Authority collaborate to help organizations overcome the logistical constraints of large-scale IoT deployment by enabling automated Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate administration.

Entrust is a prominent provider of trusted identities, payments, and data security solutions, whereas Device Authority is a global leader in identity and access management.

The two entities are regarded as industry leaders in IoT Device Identity Lifecycle Management. They have also combined Device Authority’s KeyScaler IoT IAM platform with Entrust’s PKI services. Extending their collaboration for Hardware Security Module services to enable device trust, data trust, and automation at the IoT scale. Connecting to FIPs compliant Entrust PKI and HSM services will enable security activities. Device attestation, onboarding, Machine Identity Lifecycle Management, certificate signing, and cryptographic operations are some of the security activities. KeyScaler’s pre-built service connectors or configurable connection framework, can also automate security operations in any cloud application or platform.

CEO of Device Authority, Darron Antill stated, “Without the proper management of machine identities, organizations can’t guarantee the confidentiality of information that flows to authorized machines or prevent the flow of information to unauthorized machines. Not only does our partnership with Entrust enable the automated management of security throughout a device’s lifecycle but it also increases efficiencies and reduces overheads, allowing for brownfield deployment and integration into any IoT application or platform.”

The Vice President, Certificate Solutions Products and Markets at Entrust, Jay Schiavo commented, “By expanding our partnership with Device Authority, we can provide customers with device trust, data trust, and automation at an IoT scale. Machine identities and machine identity management are about the endpoints and their supporting infrastructure, and together we make it possible to balance efficiency, automation, and security across the digital ecosystem. Considering IoT and machine identities are top drivers for the adoption and deployment of PKI, and given the rapid evolution of both landscapes, cybersecurity has become increasingly critical.”
