Device Authority Expands US Team With New Senior Appointment To Build Industrial, Automotive & Manufacturing Industries

Global leader in IoT device identities, Device Authority continues to grow its North American team with the addition of experienced IoT sales leader, David Bennett.


Device Authority’s KeyScaler platform automates zero trust security for IoT at scale, providing its global customer base with complete device, data and operational trust. With a stronghold already in the Healthcare, Automotive, Oil & Gas and Industrial sectors, David’s appointment allows the team to continue to strengthen its presence and help companies to deploy safe and secure IoT at scale whilst complying with the increasing IoT legislation.


David’s experience stems from 10 years at eMation, later known as Axeda, where he progressed from the first salesperson to VP. Here he was a key contributor in the company acquiring 130 customers and establishing itself as the leader in its space before being acquired by PTC and becoming part of ThingWorx IoT Application Enablement Platform (AEP). He has also spent time in key roles within Oracle, WindRiver, BSquare and Zededa, assisting with their building of IoT programs.


More recently David has also been an advisor to ‘InSkill’ an organisation which uses AI to capture knowledge and upskill workers in a bid to tackle the global skilled worker gap.


Commenting on David’s appointment to the team, Device Authority CEO Darron Antill said, “It is great to welcome someone with David’s calibre of experience in IoT, AI and Machine Learning to our growing US team. His knowledge of the IoT landscape is invaluable and his forward thinking approach will ensure that new and existing customers will benefit from a solution that continues to meet the needs of their IoT operations as they continue to grow and as technology and threats evolve.”


David Bennett added, “As someone with extensive experience in the IoT space, I am excited to have joined a company that is truly making automated device security possible as the complexities around securing devices has always been a significant barrier to the deployment of IoT at scale. I’m looking forward to working with the growing team in North America to continue to build on Device Authority’s impressive customer portfolio.”
