Indentive prioritises consumer security for its state-of-the-art IoT platform

Anders Visell, CEO of Indentive

Irdeto is partnering with Indentive, a Swedish IoT technology provider, to secure its home IoT platform, Connective. Indentive will implement Irdeto Cloakware® Software Protection and Cloakware Secure Environment to ensure that security is built into the basis of the home network.

This move is intended to offer better and more efficient protection than the retrofitting that often occurs in the IoT industry. Irdeto will work with Indentive to secure both its IoT gateway device and companion mobile device app, ensuring a more secure smart home environment for consumers.

Indentive’s Connective platform is initially scheduled to be rolled out in five cities in Sweden. Upon signing up for the platform, consumers will receive the home gateway device, five sensors, two wall plugs and one door sensor. There is also the option to add additional devices and systems, all built on a gateway and app with strong security built in. The combination of Irdeto’s robust security and Indentive’s innovative platform will allow consumers to reap the rewards that IoT can bring with protection from hacking and other vulnerabilities.

“IoT connectivity is driving innovation and providing many opportunities for consumers to enhance their lives,” said Anders Visell, CEO, Indentive. “However, it is crucial that these opportunities are offered securely. As a forward-thinking organisation, it was important for us to partner with a similarly innovative company specialising in security.

This partnership with Irdeto will build robust security into our IoT platform, ensuring that consumers in Sweden – and beyond – can build a connected home network with protection from cyberattacks. Our goal is to help consumers securely take advantage of all that the Internet of Things has to offer.”

“In the past, a common model for IoT devices was to build, ship and forget. This has resulted in a flood of unsecured consumer devices in homes and a challenge in retrofitting security,” said Doug Lowther, CEO, Irdeto. “Indentive understands the importance of building security into the home IoT network from the ground-up. This proactive strategy will see consumers better protected from hacking and IoT vulnerabilities.”

Cloakware for IoT is a comprehensive software protection solution that consists of a set of anti-hacking technologies that add extra layers of security to software platforms, apps and endpoint devices. It prevents hackers from reverse engineering by using anti-debug, code and data transformations, whitebox cryptography and other technologies. Renewability, diversity and secure key management are crucial aspects of the Cloakware for IoT solution to ensure lifecycle management of IoT endpoint devices and applications.
