The difficult truth of any modern IoT or IIoT deployment is that the more connected you are, the more complex securing all those connected devices becomes. You have to account for a wide range of hardware, operating systems, form factors, memory needs, resource constraints, chipsets, programming languages, workloads, environments and standards. New technologies need to connect securely to legacy machines. Devices in the field need to be updateable and identifiable. And it all needs to work together, seamlessly, with virtually zero margin for error.
Cut the complexity with a unified platform for developers, manufacturers and operators. DigiCert for Connected Devices addresses these challenges by streamlining management and embedding digital trust at every stage of the device security lifecycle—no matter what scale.
Device certification issuance
Secure device updates
Secure device configuration
In-field device monitoring
Certificate and key management
Secure device boot
Device enrollment to cloud services
Instead of manually writing—and rewriting—applications for each hardware type, memory constraint or operating system, developers can write OS-agnostic code in their preferred language with a small data footprint. That means faster time to market, better continuity of operations, and a lot less repetition.
Rather than requiring you to create or reengineer custom code for application integration across a wide variety of systems, DigiCert for Connected Devices streamlines application development with a robust Software Development Kit (SDK). APIs accelerate migration from open source, enable seamless integration with secure elements, and streamline import/export compliance.
DigiCert for Connected Devices takes Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) a step further by embedding digital trust at the silicon level and enabling remote control over the full lifecycle of every device—from gateways to servers to sensors. This helps you avoid outages, ensures your perimeter is continuous and up-to-date, and increases your agility in the event of a discovered vulnerability or attack.
Ensuring the same level of security on legacy, “brownfield” devices often requires labor-intensive custom coding. DigiCert for Connected Devices solves this problem by enabling complete interoperability between greenfield and brownfield devices. Your legacy machines work seamlessly and securely with new technology, leaving you free to integrate new functionality without sacrificing business-critical operations.
Generating new keys and managing certificates becomes exponentially more time and resource-consuming as the number of connected devices in your environment increases. DigiCert for Connected Devices delivers highly scalable, specialized PKI management workflows for devices, software and hardware and makes it possible to automate many time-consuming manual processes—from key generation to code signing to certificate revocation and renewal.
