IoT Security - Connect your business safely with embedded & cloud security solutions

iot security

In an increasingly connected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) is delivering new business value and benefits to individuals across the globe.

At the heart of it all is the data generated and exchanged, which brings new insights into better ways to work and live. 

But to take full benefit of this new world, one needs to trust that the connected objects and data they generate are only accessible by authorized people and machines. 

Deploying IoT effectively means deploying securely

Deploying IoT solutions effectively means deploying them securely.

Gemalto’s IoT security solutions are driving innovation by protecting data integrity, data confidentiality and make sure IoT infrastructures can be resilient to cybersecurity risks. 

There are many ways an attacker can access device features or data on a connected object. 

The main target hacking points are shown below in IoT layers: the devices, the network & connections, and the cloud infrastructure:

IoT security solutions

As Gartner forecast 25 billion connected things by 2021, wireless networks and data moving around are increasing. 

The good news?

This opens up exciting new business opportunities and a trail for economic growth. 

The bad news?

It also opens the door to a variety of new security threats. ? 

IoT security is key to gain and retain consumer trust in privacy and to fulfill the full potential of the IoT promise. 

Recognized as a global leader in digital security?, Gemalto is uniquely positioned to provide leading-edge IoT security solutions and services to protect your connected objects, from the design and manufacturing stages, through their entire lifecycle, guarding data against malevolent attacks.   

There are essential pillars to secure the connected objects and the IoT data at rest in devices and cloud, or in motion on networks.

Securin?g IoT Device? and Data

Gemalto’s embedded software and hardware solutions help Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) overcome security challenges:

  • M2M-optimised SIM? and embedded SIM (eUICC)?: both tamper-resistant environments represent a strong authentication token for cellular applications. They encrypt and authenticate data and securely identify devices on global mobile networks?.
  • Cinterion Secure Element?: the hardware component, embedded in devices, provides the maximum level of protection at the edge, for the most critical IoT applications. Its tamper-proof environment works as a ′safe′ storage for encryption keys and security credentials.  Embedded
  • SafeNet Hardware Security Modules (HSMs): HSMs excel in safeguarding the most sensitive IoT devices′ keys which are centrally stored (on servers or other systems). The hardened, tamper-resistant environment act as a trust anchor to protect the cryptographic infrastructure of some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world.  
  • Trusted Key Manager??: the advanced security solution leverages above HSMs to authenticate IoT devices and secure data exchanges, preventing unauthorized devices and IoT players from joining the network. ?It enables strong digital security through a simple and trustful mechanism of secure key?? provisioning, remote credential activation and lifecycle management.?
  • IP??? Protection: we protect the intellectual property of embedded software applications and data files, preventing reverse engineering or tampering 

Securing the Cloud

Some major forms of threat come from the enterprise or cloud environment that smart devices are connected to. 

Gemalto solutions for data encryption and cloud security provide a comprehensive portfolio for cloud service providers and enterprises to secure their enterprise and cloud assets. 

Our cloud-based licensing and entitlement? solution ?helps technology companies leverage the full potential of the cloud environment, ensuring their intellectual property is secured.

IoT Security Lifecycle Management

Often overlooked, managing the lifecycle of security components across the device and cloud spectrum is a critical element for a robust and long-term digital security strategy. 

Security is not a one-off activity, but an evolving part of the IoT ecosystem.

  • Adding new devices, 
  • decommissioning others, 
  • onboarding to new cloud platforms, 
  • securing firmware or software updates, 
  • or proceeding to the maintenance of large fleets, 

all these activities necessitate comprehensive management of identities, keys, and tokens. 

Gemalto provides solutions to build a sustainable security lifecycle management infrastructure, to address current and future security threats.
