INSIDE SECURE INTRODUCES VAULTITRUST TO LOWER ADOPTION BARRIER TO BEST-IN-CLASS SECURITY FOR INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT)
VAULTiTRUST a Trusted Personalization and Provisioning Services Manager for INSIDE Security Solutions
Aix-en-Provence, France, October 20th, 2014 – INSIDE Secure (Euronext Paris: INSD), a leader in embedded security solutions for mobile and connected devices today announced the launch of VAULTiTRUST, a trusted security personalization and provisioning service for Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software security solutions. Using VAULTiTRUST, INSIDE Secure customers can now introduce highly secure IoT connected devices without the burden or additional manufacturing costs associated with security implementation.
The IoT market is booming. The ability to authenticate and remotely manage millions of networked, automated devices and equipment is becoming pervasive−from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential home−everything, from refrigerators to wine bottles, is connecting and communicating via the Internet. Gartner, a technology research and advisory company, says the IoT market, which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009. (For more Gartner IoT market data visit: http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2636073.) However, the IoT market cannot reach its fullest potential unless security and privacy are addressed.
Best-in-class IoT security requires that each device carry an embedded secret and/or unique identifier. The highest level of trust can only be achieved when provisioning and personalization are done in the most secure manner. This extra step in production can add unwanted costs and delay time to market for IoT device manufacturers. With the new VAULTiTRUST service, customers can directly purchase fully provisioned solutions from INSIDE Secure that have personalization built-in at the chip level. As a result customers can maintain focus on their core competencies while significantly speeding the manufacturing process because they will no longer need to install a secure zone in their production line or oversee provisioning.
“INSIDE Secure developed the VAULTiTRUST, trusted personalization and provisioning service, because we understand the complexity, additional cost and burden of meeting best-in-class security demands that our IoT customers today face,” said Bernard Vian, executive Vice President of the Secure Transactions Division of INSIDE Secure. “With VAULTiTRUST, our customers can build trust into connected devices in a cost effective and efficient manner to avoid security concerns and capitalize on the full potential of the exploding IoT market.”
As a leading IoT security visionary, INSIDE Secure continues to innovate to meet customer IoT security demands and has helped many customers overcome the unique security challenges of connected devices. Recent examples include:
- · Object authentication for luxury items such as expensive wines and spirits, brand name handbags and high-end bikes
- · Connected machines including home automation products like security video cameras
- · Smart Grid products such as gas meters
VAULTiTRUST benefits include:
- · Superior Security: Common Criteria EAL5+ secure premises with ability to track progress in manufacturing flow and complete traceability throughout the manufacturing process
- · Efficiency: Fastest way to provision sensitive data and personalize products
- · User-Friendly: Customers easily submit confidential data through a Secure Web Portal
