Microsoft Azure customers worldwide now gain access to KeyScaler for Azure Sphere to take advantage of automated certificate lifecycle management

London, UK, and San Ramon, California, USA – Device Authority, a global leader in identity and access management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced KeyScaler for Azure Sphere in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure.

Azure Sphere brings together 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 for Azure Sphere software 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 the Azure IoT platform.

Device Authority continues to see an increase in the demand for security and management integrations with Microsoft Azure when customers are building and deploying their IoT strategy. KeyScaler for Azure Sphere has the required 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 and if required can support certificate based authentication for any addtional IOT applications.

“We are delighted to launch our KeyScaler for Azure Sphere offering on Azure Marketplace today. We have worked closely with the Azure Sphere team to help solve their customer’s challenges with security lifecycle management, and now customers and partners can consume KeyScaler for Azure Sphere directly through Azure Marketplace as they develop their IoT projects,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.
