Cryptosoft has introduced the latest version of its platform for policy-driven authentication and encryption services for connected Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices.

The new release is intended to meet the needs of enterprises seeking to deploy both manned and unmanned IoT and M2M devices, for mission-critical business and consumer uses.

Cryptosoft’s solution now offers the five central elements needed by enterprises to deploy secure, products and services based on the IoT and M2M devices:

Policy driven security around the authentication of the user accessing the data

Strong encryption around the transmission and storage of IoT and M2M data within enterprise networks

The ability to deploy this security solution with all types of devices (a device agnostic solution)

The ability to provision and update software and devices Over the Air (OTA) or Over the Internet (OTI)

An enterprise offering that is available at a cost-effective price.

Version 4.0, available today, extends Cryptosoft’s policy-based authentication and data protection technology to support unique device-derived key management capabilities from Device Authority, Inc. By adding support for Device Authority’s D-FACTOR as an option within the Cryptosoft platform, customers are now able to authenticate and transparently encrypt data payloads, including those from unmanned devices, from the edge of the IoT and M2M ecosystems, right back to the relevant, mission critical application.

The Cryptosoft platform is device agnostic and allows customers to add their policy-driven data encryption services to their existing IoT and M2M workflows without re-wiring applications or current data flows.

“With today’s announcement, we are solving a critical industry problem.” said Darron Antill, CEO of Cryptosoft. “The many benefits promised by Machine-to-Machine communications and the Internet of Things will not be held back by security concerns. The era of cost-effective, reliable enterprise security for the IoT and M2M market has now arrived.”

“We are very excited about this important integration with the Cryptosoft platform. By offering our D-FACTOR core authentication components Cryptosoft customers have the ability to deploy the strongest security posture around the two principal areas recognized as potential IoT and M2M vulnerabilities; Devices and Data,” said Talbot Harty, CEO of Device Authority.
