GlobalSign IoT Partner Program Seeking New Members
Leading Certificate Authority seeks new partners to extend the value of their security offerings
BOSTON, Mass., August 26, 2020 -- GMO GlobalSign (https://www.globalsign.com), a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of identity and security solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the reintroduction of our IoT Partner Program. The purpose is to highlight GlobalSign’s existing partnerships, as well as extend an invitation to new collaborators to join us in delivering outstanding solutions. GlobalSign has long promoted and nurtured strong partnerships since it created the IoT Solutions Group. Ideal partners include IoT consortia, semiconductor and IoT device manufacturers, Cloud Service Providers (CSP) and system integrators.
GlobalSign believes that a healthy and secure IoT ecosystem encompasses finding, maintaining and growing business connections that enable innovation, collaboration, and ultimately the ability to build something better than accomplishing it alone. The benefits to becoming an IoT partner with GlobalSign include:
- Gaining instant security and credibility by partnering with a top CA
- Enjoying active collaboration with our team – from assisting with products, integrations, and final production launches to contributing insight on proof of concepts, we will work together to drive innovation, progress, and successful IoT application outcomes
- Reducing your integration costs and risk, ensuring compliance and accelerating your IoT offering’s time to market
“As a trusted Certificate Authority, GlobalSign is a secure, authoritative link in the IoT chain of trust that application developers, system integrators, device manufacturers, and network and gateway providers rely on to secure their IoT ecosystems,” said Lancen LaChance, Vice President, IoT Solutions, GlobalSign. “By partnering with GlobalSign you’ll bring products to market faster that are more secure while saving money, reducing risk and getting invaluable input from a team working with world-class customers.”
“Partnering with GlobalSign integrates Infineon’s proven, market leading hardware trust anchor into Global Sign’s security service landscape,” said Juergen Rebel, Vice President and General Manager Embedded Security at Infineon Technologies. "This enables device manufacturers to easily and securely set up and manage cloud-connected IoT devices and to protect the identity and availability of those devices over the entire lifecycle. Our rich partner ecosystem spanning global cloud service providers brings the benefits of zero-touch provisioning to leading device manufacturers worldwide.”
GlobalSign currently offers two types of partnerships, an IoT Collective Alliance and an IoT Technology Alliance partnership.
Our IoT Collective Alliance Partnership directly addresses the needs of groups such as industry consortia, standards organizations and IoT associations. IoT Collective Alliance partners working with GlobalSign are able to accelerate membership learning to efficiently collect, collaborate and share IoT security best practices. They’re also able to establish IoT security standards for specific verticals to meet market and compliance demands. In addition, IoT Collective Alliance partners are able to craft acceptable security vendor parameters with the help of our Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security experts and reduce security implementation costs for their membership, which translates into valuable membership services.
GlobalSign’s IoT Technology Alliance members innovate advance their integration models when they rely on GlobalSign’s industry-leading, high-performance, full-service PKI-based IoT Identity Platform and globally recognized CA. They reduce their integration costs by following our secure software integration methodology and gain access to the latest version releases. IoT Technology Alliance partners also accelerate time to market by streamlining IoT security integration with valuable proof of concept (PoC) guidance from our expert team. These partners secure their entire IoT ecosystem to mitigate risks and enable security from chip to cloud. For this group, GlobalSign IoT Solutions is seeking semiconductor manufacturers, IoT device manufacturers, IoT device operators, network and gateway providers, CSPs and IoT systems integrators.
LaChance added: “We partner with some outstanding companies that share our secure, reliable reputation and collaborative philosophy. But innovation never rests, and we’re dedicated to maintaining our leadership role in the IoT security marketplace with partners who share our vision. We’re always on the lookout for companies that complement our technology and that add value to our mutual customers.”
