Privafy is collaborating with Micron Technology to deliver a turnkey IoT security service that will deliver seamlessly integrated Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) for OEM device manufacturers and service providers deploying connected products, from smart locks to self-driving automobiles.
At the heart of the new system is Privafy MicroEdge™, an embedded software module that enables IoT devices equipped with Micron Authenta™ flash to leverage Privafy's Data-in-Motion security capabilities. MicroEdge and Authenta together will protect and control traffic to and from the IoT device.
Privafy's cloud-native SECaaS uses Authenta's Key Management Service (KMS) to create a clone-proof endpoint authentication to onboard the device to a comprehensive list of services, including end-to-end secure connectivity, device lifecycle management and clustering, firewall, malware detection, and Distributed Denial-of-Service protection. IoT product manufacturers can leverage the system to manage credentials such as manufacturing, sales, service provisioning across their device ecosystem as well as secure connectivity from IoT devices to the IoT application workloads in public and private clouds.
"The collaboration with Micron delivers a full turnkey product," said Privafy's Sami Nassar, EVP, and chief strategy officer." Privafy's cloud-native service will be able to recognize Micron Authenta Flash and activate Authenta-MicroEdge services automatically. There's no complex software to manage or updates to install. MicroEdge runs seamlessly in the background without adding latency to IoT communications and secures all Data-in-Motion as it passes between IoT devices and other endpoints."
