Why choose Device Authority’s new IoT Security cloud service – aka KeyScaler as a Service (KSaaS)?

For small and medium sized enterprises, cloud-based software infrastructure delivered via SaaS model can provide a great cost-effective alternative to delivering effective security services to your business.

Modern IT and Business solutions are shifting away from embedding third party software components or using on-premise infrastructure in favour of SaaS solutions for obvious and compelling benefits. Software infrastructure vendors are transitioning from Enterprise licensing models to SaaS business models. New companies like Twilio, Okta… have proven this SaaS Platform models and most of the legacy enterprise software companies like Microsoft and Adobe have also joined the SaaS model.

Most enterprises have already embraced cloud and now look at digital transformation strategies with IoT initiatives. The security infrastructure space is also transitioning to SaaS delivery models e.g. Cloud IAM. IoT IAM is similar, a cloud-based SaaS model makes more sense for many use cases as most IoT applications and infrastructure are in the cloud.

Security is a big impediment for IoT adoption. IoT Security SaaS platforms provide enterprises and IoT project owners with the ability to deploy a wide range of applications to deliver maximum functionality and improve business value.

Implementing solutions quickly and effectively with no additional infrastructure software and hardware, consuming the service as required, freeing up dedicated resource who are responsible for usual software maintenance and upgrades.

KSaaS is a low monthly usage subscription, calculated by device connections, therefore customers will only ever pay for what they use.

This licensing model also supports new and typical IoT business models.


As with most SaaS instances, our KeyScaler platform is being run in multiple locations at any single time, in an unforeseen event that a disaster occurs, an organisations’ business information is backed up in the cloud, and in turn the data is more secure. This functionality also eradicates the painstaking task to instigating automatic backups without user intervention and thus ensuring the integrity of your data.
