Senet, the first and only North American provider of public, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs) for long range-based (LoRa-based) Internet of Things (IoT) applications, has announced an IoT technology initiative with Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, to drive the highest level of security for LoRaWAN connected devices in a first-of-its-kind integration.
This collaboration between the two companies will provide a full integration of Senet’s open, standards-based network with the Gemalto Trusted Key Manager product providing IoT solution providers and enterprises desiring to use LPWAN technology an easy to integrate and use end-to-end offering for key provisioning, authentication and security for devices connecting to LoRa-based networks. The Trusted Key Manager leverages Gemalto security best practices and hardware tamper resistance for key generation and storage. The result is a solution which delivers two critical features for global IoT deployments:
- Most importantly, end-to-end device security and data privacy are made easily accessible to all solution providers.
- Secondly, mass production of devices destined for global deployment with flexible and secure, cloud-based provisioning at time of deployment will enable multi-national solution providers to confidently produce and deploy LoRaWAN devices throughout all markets.
“The integration between Gemalto’s world-class security and identity management offering and Senet’s leading LPWAN IoT network clearly demonstrates our commitment, and that of the LoRa Alliance, to continue to provide and improve on the degree of protection for connected devices in IoT deployments,” said Will Yapp, VP of Business Development for Senet. “As the leading LPWAN service provider in North America, we take device security very seriously. Gemalto provided the broadest and most complete offering to supply the highest level of security possible to our customers.”
Juan Carlos Lazcano, Vice President of M2M for North America at Gemalto said, “We are committed to providing LoRaWAN service providers globally with the best-of-breed solutions for securely provisioning and authenticating IoT devices on their networks. With Senet being the first and only public LoRaWAN service provider in North America, partnering with them was key to our North American market strategy.”
