In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
• Ability to scale
• Industry’s fastest certificate issuance platform
• Flexible pricing model
GlobalSign’s next-generation IoT Identity Platform addresses critical device security requirements.
The Platform is a set of products and services flexible and scalable enough to issue and manage billions of identities for IoT devices of all types. It enables identity lifecycle management, including certificate issuance, renewal and revocation, device enrollment and flexible API-driven integrations.
Using Public Key Infrastructure as the core identity mechanism, the IoT Identify Platform can serve the varied security use-cases of the IoT across all verticals, including manufacturing, agriculture, smart grid, payments, IoT gateways, healthcare, other industrial ecosystems and more.
The Platform supports initial certificate provisioning (both greenfield and brownfield deployments) to lifetime maintenance through to final sunsetting, decommissioning or transfer of ownership. Giving each device or endpoint a unique identity allows them to get authenticated when they come online and then throughout their lifetime, prove their integrity, and securely communicate with other devices, services and users.
The central feature of the Platform is IoT Edge Enroll, a full-fledged enrollment client used to provision and manage PKI-based identities to IoT devices of all types. Providing these unique identities to all devices enables trust within the ecosystem, allowing for mutual authentication between devices and systems as well as protecting communications from eavesdropping or tampering.
IoT Edge Enroll provides a flexible and scalable way to deploy these identities and maintain them throughout the full device lifecycle, with added features such as device Registration Authority (RA), certificate lifecycle management, and expanded protocol support. The cloud-based IoT Identity Platform needs a way to communicate with end devices to deliver, validate and revoke identities, and IoT Edge Enroll acts as the enrollment mechanism.
GlobalSign’s IoT Identity Platform can issue certificates at unprecedented speed and volume – more than 3,000 per second — the industry’s fastest.
