Irdeto is partnering with Indentive, a Swedish IoT technology provider, to secure its home IoT platform, Connective. Indentive will implement Irdeto Cloakware Software Protection and Cloakware Secure Environment to ensure that security is built into the basis of the home network. This move is intended to offer better and more efficient protection than the retrofitting that often occurs in the IoT industry. Irdeto will work with Indentive to secure both its IoT gateway device and companion mobile device app, ensuring a more secure smart home environment for consumers.
Indentive’s Connective platform is initially scheduled to be rolled out in five cities in Sweden. Upon signing up for the platform, consumers will receive the home gateway device, five sensors, two wall plugs and one door sensor. There is also the option to add additional devices and systems, all built on a gateway and app with strong security built in.
“IoT connectivity is driving innovation and providing many opportunities for consumers to enhance their lives,” said Anders Visell, CEO, Indentive. “However, it is crucial that these opportunities are offered securely. As a forward-thinking organisation, it was important for us to partner with a similarly innovative company specialising in security. This partnership with Irdeto will build robust security into our IoT platform, ensuring that consumers in Sweden – and beyond – can build a connected home network with protection from cyberattacks. Our goal is to help consumers securely take advantage of all that the Internet of Things has to offer.”
