Entrust Datacard and ADLINK Partner to Enable Trust at the Edge

By Ken Briodagh October 01, 2018

In a recent announcement, Entrust Datacard, a provider of trusted identity and secure transaction technology solutions, and ADLINK Technology, a provider of Edge Computing solutions, recently launched a partnership with the goal of solving one of the most significant barriers to adoption of the Internet-of-Things (IoT): Trust. This collaboration has made its goal the creation of an Industrial IoT (IIoT) security model that will enable secure communication for data streams throughout the entire IoT value chain, from manufacturing and applications to endpoints and edge devices.

The partnership reportedly will integrate Entrust Datacard’s ioTrust Security Solution into ADLINK’s Vortex Edge solution. The joint solution can operationalize systems and things securely for endpoints, applications, containers and data streams. The integration reportedly will ultimately provide customers with established and secure trusted identities for IoT ecosystems.

This joint solution will also be included as part of ADLINK’s Digital Experiments-as-a-Service (DXS), which has been designed to test and assess the effectiveness of an IoT solution design, strategy, organizational compatibility, and financial return. Organizations looking to develop secure by design Edge IoT projects can now proceed with confidence knowing that they can try a number of scenarios without large upfront costs, as DXS is typically offered as a three-month engagement including access to a comprehensive suite of Vortex Edge™ microservices supported by an ecosystem of market leading partners, which negates the need for building bespoke complex systems.

“The IIOT is advancing rapidly and customers are looking for effective ways to quickly move from testing to production. However, in survey after survey, security and complexity of integration remain the two primary deployment bottlenecks,” said Josh Jabs, VP, office of the CTO and GM IoT solutions, Entrust Datacard. “By integrating ioTrust into the ADLINK solutions and aligning deployment options with the customer test and build processes, we’ve removed these barriers thus enabling customers to securely bring turnkey data analytics and automation to the edge.”

Together, ADLINK and Entrust Datacard will seek to control the flow of data between applications, in the cloud and on the edge of IoT environments. The partnership will also enable secure communication for data streams at the edge – while at rest, in motion and in use – with an enhanced level of granularity not seen in other solutions. Furthermore, this level of specificity will allow customers to control, monitor and even monetize unique data streams.
