Security Experts Secure Connected Health Market

Thales, a self-described leader in information systems and cybersecurity, has teamed up with Device Authority, also a self-lauded leader in identity and access management (IAM) for the internet of things (IoT), have jointly developed a solution to ensure the authentication of IoT devices and the confidentiality and integrity of the data they rely on. The goal is to provide both healthcare professionals and their patients the confidence to try out new technologies.

 

The partner’s system integrates Device Authority's KeyScaler platform with the Thales nShield Connect hardware security module (HSM). This promises high-assurance device authentication at IoT scale, managed end-to-end encryption to meet compliance requirements and certificate provisioning for healthcare and other connected devices. The solution will authenticate any new device hardware and establish a strong root of trust and identity on the network.

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.

 

The solution then provides additional security operations, such as issuing a security token that the device can use to validate itself to other IoT platforms, or provide a unique device key and certificate. The KeyScaler platform delivers automation for critical credential management processes, in addition to tokenized access control and policy-based encryption for data, in transit and at rest. The solution is currently being piloted with medical devices.
