Entrust Datacard, ADLINK Team Up to Improve IIoT Security

Entrust Datacard, a provider of trusted-identity and secure-transaction solutions, and ADLINK Technology, a provider of edge-computing systems, have announced a partnership intended to address one of the largest barriers to the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT): security. This collaboration, the companies report, will create an Industrial IoT (IIoT) security model, enabling secure communication for data streams throughout the entire IoT value chain—from manufacturing and applications to endpoints and edge devices.

The partnership will integrate Entrust Datacard's ioTrust security system into ADLINK's Vortex Edge offering. The joint solution can operationalize systems and items securely for every endpoint, application, container and data stream, according to the companies. The integration is intended to provide customers with established and secure trusted identities across their IoT ecosystems, from discovery to full rollout of their IoT deployments.

The joint solution will be included as part of ADLINK's Digital Experiments as-a-Service (DXS), which has been designed to test and assess the effectiveness of an IoT solution's design, strategy, organizational compatibility and financial return. Organizations looking to develop secure edge IoT projects can try a number of scenarios without large upfront costs, as DXS is typically offered as a three-month engagement, including access to a suite of Vortex Edge microservices, supported by an ecosystem of partners. This, according to the companies, eliminates the need for building bespoke complex systems.

"The IIOT is advancing rapidly, and customers are looking for effective ways to quickly move from testing to production. However, in survey after survey, security and complexity of integration remain the two primary deployment bottlenecks," said Josh Jabs, Entrust Datacard's general manager of IoT solutions, in a prepared statement. "By integrating ioTrust into the ADLINK solutions and aligning deployment options with the customer test and build processes, we've removed these barriers, thus enabling customers to securely bring turnkey data analytics and automation to the edge."

"Our Digital Experiment as-a-Service offering is helping organizations test and assess one or multiple business hypotheses based on the impact of an IoT solution," said Lawrence Ross, ADLINK's general manager of software and solutions, in the prepared statement. "The integration of ioTrust's unique security capabilities and technology-agnostic design with DXS means we're able to provide our customers with an even more secure solution for their IoT-based endeavors, whilst also creating a process for turnkey data analytics at the edge. The integrated solution allows customers to complete use-case validation and quickly transition to a secure production environment."
