Device Authority Accelerates IoT Deployments as a Founding Member of EdgeX Foundry
New Linux Foundation project to build an open framework for IoT edge computing
LONDON and FREMONT – April 25th, 2017
- Device Authority, a global leader in policy and device-driven Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it is a founding member of EdgeX Foundry, an open source project to build a common open framework for Internet of Things (IoT) edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates enterprise and Industrial IoT.
IoT is delivering significant business value by improving efficiencies and increasing revenue through automation and analytics, but widespread fragmentation and the lack of a common IoT solution framework are hindering broad adoption and stalling market growth. The complexity of the current landscape and the wide variety of components creates paralysis. EdgeX solves this by making it easy to quickly create IoT edge solutions that have the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs.
“Security is often a major concern when implementing IoT projects, and has been seen to slow adoption,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority. “EdgeX will drive IoT adoption and enable businesses to focus on emerging innovative use cases. Device Authority is pleased to be part of EdgeX from the beginning.”
EdgeX Foundry is unifying the marketplace around a common open framework and building an ecosystem of companies offering interoperable plug-and-play components. Designed to run on any hardware or operating system and with any combination of application environments, EdgeX can quickly and easily deliver interoperability between connected devices, applications, and services, across a wide range of use cases. Interoperability between community-developed software will be maintained through a certification program.
