Biznextindia : Digital Infrastructure Provider Tata Communications has joined hands with Thales, a global leader in digital security to develop a secure global IoT connectivity solution. Tata Communications MOVE™ mobility and IoT platform and Thales’s T-Sure warranted digital identity offering is set to unlock the value in data generated by connected devices such as cars and trucks, whilst maintaining the integrity and security of IoT data.
The combined capabilities of Tata Communications and Thales aims to lower these barriers and enable businesses and manufacturers to make the most of the transformational potential of IoT by giving them peace of mind that their critical IoT data is protected against cyber-attacks.
As per the deal, Thales will provide its T-sure warranted digital identity solution to Tata Communications MOVE™ SIM cards, based on technologies from Gemalto, a Thales company. While Tata Communications MOVE™ encrypts the data in motion (in current use), T-Sure protects the information at rest (archived) on the SIM, therefore safeguarding data both on the network and at the device level. The two companies look to undertake a series of proof-of-concepts with customers to test this solution in action.
