Device Authority now supports Microsoft Azure AD single sign on and automotive connector

Published on June 4th, 2020

Device Authority, a global provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), has released it latest KeyScaler software which includes support for Microsoft Azure AD Single Sign-On (SSO) and a new connector for Ericsson‘s Connected Vehicle Cloud.

Device Authority develops new features for KeyScaler, its IoT security platform, which enhances the value for Microsoft Azure and their customers deploying IoT projects. This week’s new development is a feature for Azure AD Single Sign-On (SSO), which allows KeyScaler to use Azure AD accounts to authenticate users to the KeyScaler Control Panel.

This empowers enterprises to utilise their existing Azure user logins, to further leverage their investment in Azure cloud, and also helps to simplify the administrative user management for KeyScaler.

Organisations can benefit from using Azure group policy to assign access to the KeyScaler Control Panel, which is more intuitive for operations teams. They can continue to enforce their existing Azure user authentication standards by policy, such as requiring two factor authentication.

“We are delighted to extend our KeyScaler platform to Microsoft customers and partners who have already invested in Azure Active Directory by offering them our easy to use, one click login to KeyScaler. This helps organisations meet their security compliance requirements and reduces costs through centralised user management,” says Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.

“In addition, our EPIC technology framework helps accelerate the development of new connectors to cloud platforms and enables the engineering team to respond to customer requirements more efficiently. The automotive industry has experienced digital change for a while now and it’s promising to see the investment in robust end-to-end security from Ericsson’s CVC customers in this new connected car era,” he adds.

IoT is transforming and disrupting the automotive industry and ultimately changing the way drivers interact with their cars. Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud (CVC) provides scalability, security and flexibility for the global automotive industry when connecting products and services.

Leveraging Enhanced Platform Integration Connector (EPIC) technology, Device Authority continues to innovate their KeyScaler platform for seamless integration with the leading IoT ecosystem providers. Device Authority has developed a new connector with Ericsson’s CVC as customers require an end-to-end solution to manage their security operations for connected vehicles.

KeyScaler reduces complexities and risk through automation for device registration, onboarding, provisioning and management of credentials. These security enhancements prevent the cloning of devices, and also provides secure soft storage to protect keys.
