GlobalSign Launches New IoT Developer Program to Facilitate IoT Security Integrations

Developers are today’s top-level technology decision-makers. They have become increasingly responsible for researching, evaluating and selecting technology components to include in their organization’s tech stack. IoT developers are challenged with sifting through an abundance of unorganized and disparate information to find the IoT security solution that works best for them. It’s a grind.

That’s why the GlobalSign IoT Solutions Group is announcing the launch of an IoT developer portal designed specifically to assist IoT developers with device identity integrations.

“Our IoT developer portal is a key component of our developer program,” said Nisarg Desai, GlobalSign Director of Product Management, IoT. “It improves integration productivity by providing a centralized locale where developers can access all the tools they need to successfully integrate Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based device identity as part of their IoT security component.”

The IoT Developer Portal houses a complete set of integration tools including an SDK, client libraries, utilities, API documentation and integration guides to jumpstart the process of integrating PKI based identity in your IoT devices. It’s the ideal IoT security information hub where developers can interact with the GlobalSign IoT Solutions Group team, develop and test their proof of concept (PoC) with free X.509 digital test certificates and get the guidance needed to successfully provision device identities. With a validated PoC, it’s easy to scale into production level operations.

“We put everything in one place, so serious developers don’t have to chase what they’re looking for, and the response has been phenomenal,” adds Desai. “We’re one of only a handful of IoT developer portals out there, and the only one focused on device identity and security, so we’re ahead of the curve, and it’s an accomplishment that our customers and partners appreciate. They’re using it to secure IoT devices with trusted identities, streamline IoT integrations with proven tools and methodologies, and accelerate their own products’ time to market.”

A popular feature is the exclusivity of each developer program member on the portal. We establish separate and private extranet areas for individual organizations to maintain the privacy of each of their projects. Users can see GlobalSign product information and staff, but not each other.

GlobalSign’s IoT developer program and newly launched portal helps technology decision-makers – IoT developers – improve the quality of their IoT security decisions and solutions with clearly organized, sound informational resources, while increasing productivity and creating true competitive advantage with PKI-based device identity.
