On March 15, 2023, Keyfactor, the enterprise machine and IoT identity platform, joined the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA). CSA is a leading organization that develops and promotes open, universal standards for safer product interaction and connection. Keyfactor's CSA membership affirms the company's approach to authentication and trust between connected devices and applications, joining 260+ innovative brands like Amazon, Apple, and Google.
IoT product manufacturers must enhance the overall security and consumer experience as connected devices become more widespread. As an industry leader in IoT security, Keyfactor recognizes the challenges of device manufacturing. As a new CSA member, the organization will continue to play an essential role in making way for a secure, connected future.
Keyfactor's PKI-based digital integrity and identity capabilities support every aspect of digital trust for Matter-certified devices. Its certificate lifecycle management, common criteria certified PKI, and code-signing technologies provide complete control over the security embedded in IoT products and devices.
Ellen Boehm, SVP of IoT Strategy and Operations at Keyfactor, shared, "Manufacturers continue to grapple with IoT product security implementation; currently, there is a missing link in true authentication and trust between devices and applications that exist in secure IoT systems." She added, "Joining CSA alongside other IoT innovators, many of which are existing Keyfactor customers, will widen our reach and sustain our commitment towards helping IoT OEMs around the globe achieve reliable, secure connectivity."
