Safran Identity & Security launched “IoThrive,” a solution enabling management of the entire security chain in the Internet of Things, from a connected object’s digital identity to trusted cloud services. The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating new opportunities in many industry areas, especially through an exponential increase in data, analytics and communication capabilities. This growth is also driving attention to security risks, given that every connected object is a possible entry point into the network.
The IoThrive product range is able to manage trusted identities for connected objects through their complete lifecycle in non-cellular networks such as LPWAN (LoRa, Sigfox), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which will represent more than 70% of IoT connections by 2025. It includes Secure Elements designed for the Internet of Things supporting different schemes of authentication, provisioning of cloud services for their remote management and other value-added services. This package enables customers to holistically manage an IoT environment with the confidence that all related objects, connections and data are fully protected.
“Our approach in developing the IoThrive range has been to free our customers from security concerns, so they can focus on delivering innovative IoT use cases. This is why we made IoThrive an end-to-end solution including both hardware and services,” explained Yves Portalier, Vice President & General Manager for the Telecom Business Unit at Safran Identity & Security. “In contrast to all other market offerings today, where you have to piece together different products from multiple vendors, IoThrive is the only package that presents the entire solution required for robust security and a trusted identity of Things.”
Commercially available by mid-2017, the IoThrive product range will be demonstrated at GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (February 27 – March 2 / Hall 6, Stand G 30).
