StrongKey announced Tuesday that it has become a member of the Infineon Security Partner Network, combining the company’s research and solutions with Infineon’s security technology. The strategic partnership will bring benefits, among others to the automotive, aerospace, biotechnology, finance, and government services markets.
Infineon Technologies provides security solutions covering applications as diverse as payment, connected cars and the Internet of Things (IoT). With StrongKey’s advanced cryptographic software solutions, Infineon customers can provision and manage a unique digital identity into each IoT device.
The strongly authenticated devices, subsequently, leverage the encryption, tokenization, digital signature and key management capabilities of StrongKey’s solutions, thus protecting data at unparalleled levels. With this partnership, Infineon and StrongKey will make verifying device identity, an essential element of IoT security, easy and affordable.
StrongKey is an enterprise key management infrastructure company, bringing new levels of capability and data security at a price point significantly lower than other solutions on the market. Providing products and services in symmetric key management, encryption, tokenization and authentication, StrongKey is focused on securing data in cloud computing, e-commerce, healthcare, finance and other sectors mandating protection of sensitive data. StrongKey’s solutions are installed at customer sites around the world, and are key components of mission-critical business operations.
The integration will deliver strong device identity that uses public/private key cryptographic methods, device identity verification becomes extremely secure and tamper-evident; along with turnkey setup with StrongKey’s end-to-end deployment solutions significantly reduce setup time and keep systems running smoothly.
Designed with developers in mind – REST and SOAP web services, with sample code and clear documentation, enable easy integration and faster time to deployment, the solution will provide seamless integration with existing systems. StrongKey’s focus on solving the hard problems and integrating new technologies seamlessly with legacy systems ensures guaranteed delivery. Its open source licensing model delivers unparalleled savings to companies deploying world-class security solutions.
“IoT device makers can solve their thorniest identity problems by combining Infineon’s hardware security and StrongKey’s device identity verification solutions,” said Steve Hanna, senior principal of technical marketing at Infineon Technologies Americas Corp. “Together, these technologies address the most fundamental challenge of IoT: securely identifying IoT devices and managing their identity over time, all with reasonable cost and effort.”
“StrongKey is excited about being included in the Infineon Partner program. We’ve been integrating a Trusted Platform Module into our products for over a decade and have made it a standard component of our key management solutions,” said Arshad Noor, CTO, StrongKey. “Hardware-backed key management creates a significant barrier to attacks and gives our customers the assurance that their data is being protected with advanced capabilities. We look forward to working with Infineon to bring world-class security solutions to market faster.”
