Gemalto and Entrust Datacard Extend Partnership to Accelerate IoT Security Adoption


Partnership provides trusted, cloud-based platform for integrated
identity management and data protection solution for IoT devices and

Gemalto, the leader in digital security, and Entrust Datacard, a leading
provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology
solutions, today announced the expansion of their longstanding
partnership to include a secure framework for Internet-connected
devices. This expanded collaboration and integration will allow
customers to leverage Entrust
Datacard ioTrust™ Security Solutions
with Gemalto's SafeNet
Data Protection On Demand
to establish and secure trusted identities
across their Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures and further enable
their digital business initiatives.

A recent Gemalto
IoT security study
found that 90 percent of consumers lack
confidence in the security of IoT devices and only half of companies
have adopted a "security by design" approach when building IoT devices.
In addition, more than half of consumers are most concerned with a
hacker controlling their IoT device or having their data stolen due to
the connected object, according to the study. Based on the security
risks and growing need for "security by design," companies like Gemalto
and Entrust Datacard are working together to make securing the IoT as
easy and efficient as possible.

The partnership addresses the industry need to simplify the process of
building and maintaining security in IoT products and services with an
integrated cloud-based solution for identity management and data
protection. Customers adopting Entrust Datacard's ioTrust Security
Solution are able to identify IOT devices from the earliest stages of
manufacturing throughout the operational lifecycle and secure data
within IoT infrastructures. Gemalto's SafeNet Data Protection On Demand
enables enterprises to protect IoT device identities and data with
cloud-based Hardware Security Modules and broad range of cloud-based
encryption, key brokering and key vaulting services. Organizations can
also choose to deploy on-premise versions of both the SafeNet Hardware
Security Modules, Key Management and Data Encryption products and
Entrust Datacard's ioTrust Security Solution.

"Organizations are still struggling to incorporate security into IOT
initiatives and keep pace with the broader IOT objectives of delivering
innovative services and more efficient operations. While we continue to
work with the industry to mature best practices and standards, we've
also incorporated these learnings into our solutions," said Josh Jabs,
vice president, office of the CTO and GM of IoT solutions for Entrust
Datacard. "Extending our long-standing relationship with Gemalto to IOT
made sense as together we make critical elements of IoT security easier
to adopt."

"We are pleased that many security providers are now coming together to
integrate solutions and employ security across the entire IoT
ecosystem," said Todd Moore, senior vice president of Encryption
Products at Gemalto. "We're moving our strong partnership with Entrust
Datacard into a new era – securing the IoT, where encryption,
cryptography, identity issuance and access management are a full-stack
solution and not individual components. This way, security is built-in
and no longer an after-thought or a challenge. It becomes invisible and
just happens."
