Tata Communications and Thales are working together 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.
In Tata Communications’ global Cycle of Progress1 survey, 30% of IT decision makers cited security and 25% cited privacy issues as the biggest barriers to IoT adoption. The combined capabilities of both the companies 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.
Thales will provide its T-sure warranted digital identity solution to Tata Communications MOV SIM cards, based on technologies from Gemalto, a Thales company. The solution aims to secure the data that vehicles carry and provide control over data and applications, whilst keeping hackers and cyber-criminals at bay. The solution aims to allow for multiple secure ‘vaults’ within the vehicle to which only the vault owner has access.
Tata Communications along with its subsidiaries is a leading global provider of A New World of Communications.
