If you’re in the technology industry, you know that early January is all about the Consumer Electronics Show® – the world’s largest trade show for consumer technology in Las Vegas and pretty much America’s largest annual trade show of any kind. With more than four decades of success, CES reaches across global markets, connects the “who’s who” of the industry and enables consumer technology innovations to grow and thrive.

At CES 2017 you’ll find one of our strategic partners, HARMAN International. At the show, they will emphasize how HARMAN Connected Services helps enterprises – from small device manufacturers to large automotive OEMs – accelerate the transformation to the connected world through cloud, mobility and analytics solutions.

In July 2016, Entrust Datacard entered into a strategic partnership with HARMAN International to bring to market an Internet of Things (IoT) security offering that will help in Ensuring a Trusted Internet of Things and make future device integration seamless and secure. Built in trust anchors during manufacturing, along with device information, can be operationalized when devices are added onto a network — or when the infrastructure is ready to take advantage of the security and data capabilities built into the device.

The partnership allows both companies to leverage the new Entrust Datacard IoTrust™ offering with their respective customers while jointly advancing the development of the IoT security ecosystem.

The solution will enable organizations to establish trust within their infrastructure and secure the interaction between users, devices and systems in a manner that recognizes the customer’s need to leverage existing environments. Plus remain flexible in choosing devices, backend applications and data analytics platforms best suited to their specific business environments.

The strategic partnership was established based on HARMAN’s deep IoT domain and industry vertical knowledge and Entrust Datacard’s long standing history of providing identity solutions which enable secure transactions in high risk and constrained environments.

Entrust Datacard has a long history of enabling customers to establish the trust within digital infrastructures and leveraging that trust to secure their interactions. The IoTrust solution is designed to securely enable convergence between enterprise IT and operational technologies (OT) and help transform physical entities to digital assets, extending the value of core business. By partnering with HARMAN International we are combining a unique mix of disciplines to bring to market solutions that are secured by design to unlock the value of digital business.
