Secure Monitoring and Management of Industrial Assets

April 10th, 2018 –  LONDON, UK and FREMONT, USA - Device Authority, a global leader in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT) and InVMA, an IoT systems integrator and managed service provider, today announced the availability of AssetMinder secured by KeyScaler.

AssetMinder integrated with KeyScaler showcases a market leading microservices platform utilizing PTC’s ThingWorx 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

“Robust security is critical when designing a complete IoT solution. We believe in adopting a best practice approach which is why we have integrated Device Authority’s KeyScaler IoT security platform into AssetMinder, our turnkey asset performance solution,” said Patrick Nash, Managing Director of InVMA.

Connecting large machinery and buildings without a strong security posture can leave your infrastructure and/or services open to compromise or malicious attack. Any IoT solution should have 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.

“It is pleasing to see two of our portfolio companies working together to launch market ready solutions in the IoT space. Both Device Authority and InVMA have valuable technology expertise and combined, they have created an exciting offering which will help organisations implement IoT initiatives securely,” said Al Sisto, CEO of Tern Plc.

AssetMinder secured by KeyScaler is available from April 23rd, 2018.
