Device Authority partners with Wipro to offer identity access and security for the Internet of Medical Things

Device Authority launched on Tuesday its alliance with Wipro Limited, a Bangalore-based information technology, consulting and business process services company.

Healthcare providers and organizations are increasingly offering flexible services to patients outside of hospitals and doctor surgeries. We already know that the IoT has played a significant role in uplifting the healthcare industry.

Smart medical devices are increasingly part of how specialized treatment is delivered to patients today. These devices are revolutionizing healthcare, making procedures more accessible and enabling physicians to better monitor how patients respond.

According to Deloitte, the IoMT market is expected to reach US$158 billion by 2022.

Device Authority is a vendor of Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT); focused on medical / healthcare, industrial and smart connected devices. Its KeyScaler platform provides trust for IoT devices and the IoT ecosystem, to address the challenges of securing the Internet of Things. KeyScaler uses technology including dynamic device key generation (DDKG) and PKI Signature+ that delivers simplicity and trust to IoT devices. This solution delivers automated device provisioning, authentication, credential management and policy based end-to-end data security/encryption.

With offices in Fremont, California and Reading, UK, Device Authority partners with various IoT ecosystem providers, including AWS, DigiCert, Gemalto, HID Global, Microsoft, nCipher Security, PTC, Sectigo, Thales, and Wipro.

Together, Wipro and Device Authority are delivering a joint solution for a large multinational healthcare company who are launching a remote patient monitoring service.

With a variety of different medical devices connecting and transmitting data, an extra layer of security is required. KeyScaler provides a hybrid security model for patient safety which includes real-time device authenticity validation and policy-driven device derived crypto for data privacy and compliance with HIPAA and GDPR. KeyScaler has the ability to combine PKI and device derived crypto using its policy-based technology, to provide the extra device and data trust and verification required by Medical use cases.

“Wipro’s global presence, deep understanding of Medical/Healthcare market and customers, and strong technical skillsets ensures that our strategic partnership can deliver secure, connected and compliant IoT solutions, as required by the client. We are delighted to be working closely with the Wipro team to help solve security requirements for another medical customer. This provides us with a platform to extend into additional medical opportunities with Wipro, as well as develop the breadth and depth of industries that require secure IoT solutions,” said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.
