Verizon Launches New Security Suite To Protect The Internet Of Things

Stocks in this article: VZ





NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of Internet-connected automobiles, smart meters and home-monitoring systems has increased dramatically, yet cybersecurity services to safeguard them are proving to be inadequate. To address this emerging technology risk, Verizon Enterprise Solutions has launched Managed Certificate Services, a next-generation, cloud-based platform .

Offering a first line of defense, Verizon's new Managed Certificate Services (MCS) platform is specifically designed to authenticate objects and machines -- verifying object and machine "identities" -- and securing data transmitted between these connections. It is available immediately in the U.S. and Europe, with a December rollout planned for the Asia-Pacific region.

Verizon's new class of cloud-based certificates provides strong security while eliminating the need for expensive hardware and complex implementations that were once the hallmark of public key infrastructure (PKI)-based solutions. Verizon MCS offers a fully managed environment that allows clients to remain focused on their core business without the complexity and cost of managing and monitoring their certificate infrastructure.  

In addition, the new services employ a pay-as-you-go model so that organizations only pay for resources they need when they need them.  

"With the continued explosion of the Internet of Things and the expansion of connected objects and machines, businesses require a simple, scalable and effective way to manage identity and data integrity," said Eddie Schwartz, vice president of global security solutions for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "Verizon's Managed Certificate Services build upon our solid digital certificate technology and managed security services expertise with a cloud-based platform to deliver an ideal offering for the age of connected solutions."

Verizon's new offerings are highly scalable and can simultaneously verify billions of devices, applications and machines. The solutions offer easy integration with existing client networks and applications through a range of flexible application programming interfaces and provide administrators access to a Web-based portal for ease of use.
