ThingWorx Users: How's your security? Learn how to enable unique device authentication with VerdeTTo.
VerdeTTo is a cloud-based IoT Security Platform that ensures the authenticity and security of your IoT devices and their data. Everything from medical equipment to energy grid meters to home appliances can be secured by VerdeTTo.
As the market leader in secure identity and validated data transfers between IoT endpoints and enterprise business systems, it’s no surprise that we’ve brought to market the first single source platform to manage your IoT security lifecycle.
With the VerdeTTo IoT Security Platform you can:
VerdeTTo issues a unique digital identity to every device, whether at time of manufacturing or post-production, and then manages identity lifecycles to ensure trust is maintained during the authentication of communication and validation of data transfer.
In the world of connected devices, devices will communicate over an open medium such as the Internet. The VerdeTTo identity issued to each device (or to each device gateway) is used whenever that device is required to identify itself and/or transmit data back to a business, application, or individual. As a result, the integrity of the device and its data are preserved. The device’s identity and associated trust chain also allow for restriction of device management and software updates to select entities and signed code.
Communication between device and application, whether on-premise or in the cloud, will be established only after successful authentication and authorization of the device’s unique identity. The network tunnel and data transfer between the endpoints will also be encrypted, resulting in validated data (confirmed to be from the actual device and confirmed to be genuine data collected by the device). Eliminating the uncertainty of data providers and their data results in security and value for business applications.
The identities issued by VerdeTTo are based on robust industry standards that support both issuance of an unlimited number of identities and establishment of trust chains between the device and its originating source. The method in which VerdeTTo creates identities allows for scalability in the millions. VerdeTTo identities are operating system agnostic, and its standards respected by all applications and protocols. VerdeTTo Connect offers the ability to securely transfer the identities onto a myriad of devices, in a secure manner that eliminates forged identities being used by counterfeit devices or data collection points.
Within the VerdeTTo structure of identities, it is possible to designate specific project containers in order to either limit the connection between projects or separate them altogether. VerdeTTo facilitates the expansion of projects and proliferation of devices within projects based on its flexible implementation and consumption models.
VerdeTTo can be a standalone cloud-based platform, that does not require integration with internal IT infrastructure or operations. The VerdeTTo IoT Platform service is managed by CSS, eliminating the need for routine maintenance, upgrades, or periodic health checks and assessments. Regular reporting is available in order to keep track of the device identities issued.
With every deployed device holding a unique ID, all interactions with that device, and especially data collection, are now done with a high level of security assurance. The ability to strongly authenticate your devices and confidently trust their data results in greater authenticity for your core business and mitigates security and regulatory risks associated with devices or data being maliciously accessed and used.
Used as a seamless integration resource, VerdeTTo CONNECT allows the VerdeTTo IoT Identity Platform to be easily applied for any industry, device, application, or data.
