Securing IoT Devices at the Manufacturing Level in the Spotlight at @ThingsExpo New York

Lancen LaChance, Vice President of Product Management, Presenting IoT Security Strategy

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2016) -  GMO GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com), a leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Everything (IoE), will be participating at @ThingsExpo New York June 7-9, 2016 with Vice President of Product Management Lancen LaChance speaking on the topic of secure device identity, particularly as it relates to IoT manufacturers. 

Typically, IoT products are on the development fast track and often more times than not, security is an afterthought. With the highly vulnerable nature of current IoT devices and the expected growth of the market, it is time for manufacturers to get serious about IoT security. In his session at @ThingsExpo, LaChance will explain how IoT developers can introduce strong security elements into the manufacturing process, addressing the critical IoT security concerns in the early stages while also accelerating time to market and reducing costs.

"The IoT is creating a massive amount of opportunities for consumers and businesses, but with that comes a major increase of security vulnerabilities," said Lancen LaChance, Vice President of Product Management for GlobalSign. "Securing the sheer number of devices expected to come online in the next few years will require manufacturers to go beyond their core competencies and find partners that can help them implement security by design."

The most reliable way to secure an IoT platform is with a combination of software and hardware, that is why GlobalSign has recently partnered with Infineon Technologies to integrate its high-scale cloud-based Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) service with Infineon's OPTIGA™ TPM allowing for the introduction of strong security elements into the manufacturing process. The technology partnership is also allowing manufacturers better brand protection and integrity, as well as the ability to bring secure devices faster to the market. The combined solution is ideal for securing a wide range of IoT applications in a variety of industries, such as industrial, manufacturing, healthcare and consumer devices.

GlobalSign's PKI and Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions are uniquely positioned to help organizations build identity management and security into the IoT ecosystem. By converging the two technologies, GlobalSign is enabling manufacturers to meet the high volume, high scale, and automated identity and security requirements for the billions of devices, people and things that encompass the IoE.
