MultiTech expands security options through new suite of security services

Derek Wallace of Multi-Tech

Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a global manufacturer of M2M and IoT communication devices and technology, announced a new suite of security enablers and corresponding services designed to empower enterprise customers with centralised management of device and data security for IoT applications.

The services are facilitated through the MultiTech DeviceHQ® device management platform which offers a central point of operational control for remote IoT assets.

Addressing a hot topic in IoT, MultiTech has partnered with Asavie and Device Authority to add device authentication, certificate management, end-to-end encryption and other secure services as well as secure software-defined wide area networking packaged as a service from a single source to deliver end-to-end security for IoT applications.

Asavie, the provider of next-generation enterprise mobility management and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity solutions, offers organisations secure, seamless, edge-to-cloud connectivity off the public Internet. Pairing the Asavie PassBridgeTM platform with MultiTech hardware, eliminates the guesswork for enterprises securing their networks. It provides a virtual private network, enabling organisations to protect data collection and transmission from interference, tampering and breach, even on low-power networks, while scaling cloud-based applications over a secure cellular backhaul.

Device Authority is the global provider in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT). Its proven KeyScalerTM platform uses unique patented Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) technology and provides a strong root of trust, securing the identity of MultiTech hardware.

This offers an automated approach for registering, authenticating and managing credentials for devices connected to KeyScaler. Data is encrypted from the gateway, in transit and persists encrypted at rest, defined and controlled by customer policy.

“We are committed to removing friction from the IoT adoption process for our customers,” said Derek Wallace, director of Product Management. “We developed these services based on customer feedback in order to address real needs in the market, and we’re looking forward to continuing our history of innovation and customer service by developing new ways to improve their IoT experience.”
