London, UK and Fremont, USA – Device Authority, a global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced its new Azure IoT Central Connector, and shared a video showcasing the KeyScaler platform on Microsoft’s Channel 9 IoT show.
The Azure IoT Central Connector is the latest technology integration with Microsoft inside Device Authority’s Security Suite. The connector automatically enrolls devices to Azure IoT Central application instances, utilizing x.509 group enrollment for enhanced certificate-based authentication to Azure IoT Central. Device Authority’s patented Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) provides attestation for devices that do not have an initial trust anchor (keys from the manufacturing stage).
James Penney, CTO of Device Authority, recently visited Microsoft’s Headquarters in Redmond to record an IoT Show. The episode illustrates how the KeyScaler platform can be used to securely onboard IoT devices to Microsoft’s IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service in seconds without human intervention. KeyScaler solves one of the biggest challenges of IoT: onboarding of devices at scale and managing the owner-controlled identities and credentials across the different Microsoft services. Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform provides policy-driven automated PKI management for any IoT device and supports any Certificate Authority.
“We were delighted to be invited by Microsoft to Redmond to showcase our IoT security platform KeyScaler. Working together on joint customer engagements, it is clear that Azure is becoming an increasingly adopted platform for IoT projects and deployments. Over a year ago we decided to build incremental value into our KeyScaler platform to enable customers to solve device trust, data trust and solve operational managements challenges at scale, which has been successful,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. “Building on our previous Microsoft announcement published in September, we are delighted to add the new Azure IoT Central Connector, a request from a number of joint prospects, and a pivotal part of the Microsoft Azure IoT strategy,” he said.
