SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#Intertrustlt;/agt;–Intertrust,
a pioneer in secure and trusted distributed systems technology, today
announced at IoT
World Expo
that its Seacert PKI (public key infrastructure) service
has passed a significant industry milestone having provisioned more than
1.5 billion secure device identities, on-time and error-free. Leveraging
its position as the preferred provider of trusted digital certificates
that authenticate the identity of devices and services, today’s news
underscores Intertrust’s expanding role as a leading Certificate
Authority for IoT. Unlike most Certificate Authorities, Seacert is
purpose-built for consumer electronics and mobile, offering a highly
scalable, secure infrastructure. Having met the rigorous standards
needed for WebTrust compliance, Seacert addresses the challenging
authentication and certification needs of today’s hyper-connected world.

Forecast: IoT Security, Worldwide, 2018, published by Gartner in
February 2018
, 39% of respondents said that security was one of the
top three technical barriers to IoT implementation success, higher than
any other factor. Gartner also
that worldwide IoT security spending will reach $2.46
billion by 2020.

Even as the industry continues to grapple with how to best secure vast
IoT deployments, secure device identities are a fundamental component of
building trust. Seacert supports a variety of business processes,
credentials, and revocation mechanisms, delivering key cryptographic
provisioning and management services enabling device manufacturers and
software developers to deploy products and services securely, quickly
and cost effectively. It supports a variety of cryptographic standards
and protocols to secure these enterprise-grade ecosystems including the
billions of IoT devices coming online in the next few years.

“From controlling connected thermostats and improving healthcare to
significant industrial IoT applications like authenticating grid
equipment and renewable energy systems, IoT’s promise comes with serious
security risks that can lead to lost revenue, brand impact and
liability, and real threats to human safety,” said Bill Horne, vice
president and general manager of Intertrust Secure Systems. “Seacert is
backed by Intertrust’s decades-long track record of protecting and
governing digital content, data and applications, and its foundational
patent portfolio. We understand the complexities of securing devices at
scale, even in the most challenging environments.”
