Japan’s printing giant Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) employs Gemalto’s Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to safeguard its clients’ privacy and sensitive data. Using Gemalto’s IDCore smart card platform and the SensorLogic Application Enablement Platform, DNP will roll out enhanced two-way server and device PKI-based authentication for IoT devices.
Once implemented, the solution authenticates both the server and communicating device. This solution can be applied to a wide array of IoT devices including smart meters, the point of sale terminals, and cash-handling machines, delivering superior protection against fraud and hacking.
Commenting on the initiative, Kunimitsu Sato, Deputy General Manager of Communication & Information Center, Information Innovation Operations of DNP said, “Based on our past collaborations and long relationship, DNP and Gemalto sets to build a new market together, reinforcing the trust and expertise to grow our IoT business which safeguards our clients’ privacy and sensitive data.”
“As cybercriminals become increasingly sophisticated and organized, IoT security is now a growing concern. DNP and Gemalto are working together to counter these threats,” said Michael Au, President, South Asia & Japan at Gemalto.
“We offer a comprehensive and secure IoT solution portfolio, which has received awards like IoT Evolution Product of the Year,” added Au.
