The IoT market – not including PCs, tablets and smartphones – is targeted to grow to 26 billion units in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 2009’s rates, according to Gartner, Inc. IoT product and service suppliers will generate incremental revenue exceeding $300 billion in 2020 resulting in $1.9 trillion in global economic value-add through sales into diverse end markets.
As traditional IT systems widen to accept IoT devices, enterprises need the ability to protect their employees, clients and intellectual property. CSS believes that if a device is going to share data over a network it should do so in a scalable, affordable, properly managed environment, with proven security technology. The proper implementation of digital certificates significantly improves end-user experience and the security posture of the enterprise through cryptographically-sound technology.

Digital certificates continue to be a cost-effective and efficient method to authenticate, secure and validate diverse endpoints and data in IoT systems. As organizations recognize the cost savings and flexibility associated with establishing their own PKI, they’re also learning that the typical enterprise PKI is not a good fit for unique IoT systems.

Enabling the security for non-traditional device connectivity with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) requires massive scale, very high key security requirements and the possibility of extended certificate lifetimes to limit on-going management challenges. CSS’ scalable model allows for ultra-high availability batch issuance and enrollment on demand with no per certificate fees.
