Intrinsic ID’s BroadKey Receives 2018 Security Excellence Award from IoT Evolution

Honored for IoT Innovation – Delivers Security at any Time in a Device’s Life

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 30, 2018 – Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of digital authentication technology for Internet of Things security, announced today that BroadKey has received a 2018 IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award from IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT technologies.

The award honors organizations delivering software or hardware solutions which enable the advancement of security for IoT devices and networks.

“This award is further validation of the great work our team has done to bring BroadKey to market and deliver the option to secure any IoT-connected device at any time,” said Pim Tuyls, chief executive officer of Intrinsic ID. “BroadKey enables designers and product managers to choose ‘right-sized’ security that balances cost and market demands.”

BroadKey is a secure root key generation and management software solution for IoT security that allows device manufacturers to secure their products with a unique secret key or identity without the need for adding a costly, standalone, security-dedicated silicon. Its unique operation uses a silicon fingerprint to generate, but never store, the secret device root key, greatly raising the bar for attackers. BroadKey can be loaded at any time in a device’s life – even retrofitted on deployed devices – without the need for physical access to the device. This enables a never-before-possible remote brownfield installment of a hardware root of trust. It delivers “right-sized” security that aligns well with the high security standards demanded by use cases such as device-to-cloud security, privacy, financial transactions and defense.

BroadKey’s underlying technology is well proven:

  • Shipped into more than 100 million IoT devices
  • Used by some of top electronics companies in the world
  • Recognized with Amazon Web Services Advanced Tier Partnership
  • Deployed in “banks to tanks” – delivers a high standard of security
  • Tested for NIST and FIPS compliance

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award exemplify innovation driving the fast-growing Internet of Things marketplace. It is my honor to congratulate Intrinsic ID for their innovative work and contribution to this rapidly evolving industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution Magazine.

“It is my pleasure to recognize BroadKey, an innovative solution that earned Intrinsic ID the 2018 IoT Evolution Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from Intrinsic ID in the future.”
