ClearBlade and DigiCert Announce Partnership to Drive Secure, Accelerated IoT Innovation

Combination delivers integrated development, runtime and trusted certificate solutions for smart products and services

Austin, TX (December 15, 2015) — Today ClearBlade, the leading software platform for developing and running smart products and services, has announced a partnership with DigiCert, a global Certificate Authority and leader in trusted identity solutions, enabling DigiCert digital certificate management solutions in the ClearBlade Novi software platform and ecosystem.

With billions of new connected devices slated to come online in just the next few years, having an automated and integrated process for enabling trust across diverse types of devices is crucial to Internet of Things investment and success. ClearBlade and DigiCert are both engineered for enabling this type of scale now, and in the future as solutions continue to scale in size and complexity, and security requirements.

“Security and risk mitigation is a critical requirement when building Internet of Things (IoT) solutions,” said Eric Simone, CEO, ClearBlade. “By integrating DigiCert’s leading certificate management capabilities into our Novi platform, companies can quickly build and launch innovative solutions with an enterprise grade security model.”

Through this new partnership, developers can directly leverage tightly integrated digital certificate management solutions for authentication as a service in the Novi platform, for devices and data in motion. In addition, specific roles for devices and users can be added to the trust model for accessing services, further mitigating risk and adding development flexibility. This integrated approach, combined with Novi’s existing end-to-end security model, will significantly accelerate innovation while mitigating vulnerability across industry verticals.

“Device authentication and encryption are essential for the Internet of Things to succeed,” said DigiCert CEO Nicholas Hales. “DigiCert IoT solutions are already used by millions of IoT devices. In partnering with ClearBlade, DigiCert is extending a market-ready, scalable, flexible and trusted solution to secure networked devices and advance smart automation.”
