Secure Monitoring and Management of Industrial Assets

 

Device Authority, a global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT) and InVMA,   provider of IoT products and bespoke IoT solutions, today announced the availability of AssetMinder® secured by KeyScaler.

AssetMinder® is an asset management application with predictive analytics capabilities. The out-of-the-box, turnkey solution can be easily implemented into your current business processes to increase productivity throughout your entire organisation.

AssetMinder® combined with KeyScaler showcases a market leading microservices platform utilizing PTC’s ThingWorx Industrial IoT platform. This offers customers a compelling, secure system solving the fundamental challenges of remote equipment monitoring delivering real customer benefits, including:

  • Secure device onboarding
  • End-to-end data crypto
  • Dynamic session based key generation
  • Policy based encryption
  • Full PKI/certificate lifecycle management
  • ThingWorx AlwaysOn protocol
  • Integrity validation

 

“Securing the Internet of Things can pose a significant challenge to organisations. We have integrated Device Authority’s KeyScaler IoT security platform into AssetMinder®,  to give our customers a peace of mind and to put the focus back on the primary intents of IoT: to collect and analyse more data to optimise processes, reduce costs, improve quality of service and enhance the customer experience,” said Patrick Nash, Managing Director of InVMA.

Connecting large machinery and buildings without a strong security posture can leave your infrastructure and services open to compromise or malicious attacks. Any IoT solution should adopt a secure by design approach, with security at the heart of its design, considering strong device-centric identity, authentication, integrity and access controls for end-to-end data transfers.

Organisations can now securely connect and manage their assets, using the data for cloud-based analytics to improve the reliability and availability of those assets, minimise cost, and reduce operational risks.

“We are delighted to be part of InVMA’s AssetMinder solution, helping their customers advance their security requirements when connecting industrial equipment and other assets. We have a long-standing relationship with InVMA and PTC and continue to develop and gain traction with our joint solutions for the Industrial and Healthcare IoT markets,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.

AssetMinder provides a unified view of the asset portfolio, virtually anytime, anywhere, to understand real performance and extend asset life. By using this innovative technology, companies can avoid costly development and simply deploy an off-the shelf, fully configured and pre-tested architecture.

Join us for an IoT event on September 19th at Cranfield University to find out the tried and tested way to connect your products and reap the benefits. See an asset being connected live in matter of minutes and take an opportunity to try it yourself and interact the equipment.
