May 21, 2024 – IOTSWC & Barcelona Cybersecurity Congress 2024, Booth #57

In an era where the Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly transforming industries, the need for robust security solutions is paramount. Recognizing this critical demand, DigiCert, a global leader in digital trust, has launched the DigiCert Device Trust Manager. This innovative solution is designed to provide end-to-end security and compliance for IoT devices throughout their entire lifecycle, addressing the complex needs of device manufacturers and operators.

The Growing Importance of IoT Security

The IoT landscape is set to expand exponentially, with an estimated 55.7 billion connected devices by 2025. These devices span a wide array of applications, including consumer electronics, healthcare equipment, and industrial systems. As the number of connected devices grows, so does the threat landscape, with cyber-attacks becoming more sophisticated and frequent. Additionally, compliance with stringent security standards and regulations becomes more challenging as organizations deploy diverse device types across various environments and international borders.

DigiCert® Device Trust Manager: A Comprehensive Solution

DigiCert’s new Device Trust Manager is engineered to address these challenges head-on, providing a scalable and integrated solution that ensures the security and integrity of IoT devices from their inception to decommissioning. Key features of the Device Trust Manager include:

  • Enhanced Compliance: The platform simplifies adherence to international regulations by providing detailed Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs), real-time monitoring, and secure provisioning. This ensures that devices maintain integrity throughout their lifecycle.
  • Operational Efficiency: By automating security processes, the Device Trust Manager facilitates quicker device deployment through features such as over-the-air (OTA) updates and zero-touch provisioning. This reduces the manual effort required and accelerates time-to-market.
  • Risk Mitigation: The solution enhances anomaly detection capabilities, protecting against potential downtimes and data breaches, thereby ensuring continuous operational integrity.
  • Scalable Security: Capable of scaling from small to large deployments, the Device Trust Manager adapts seamlessly to various device ecosystems, providing flexible and robust security.
