Capgemini & IDEMIA to launch new IoT Device Management platform

Capgemini has forged a partnership with IDEMIA to enter into a secure Internet of Things (IoT) device management platform with secure connectivity for a vast array of devices and data.

The partnership addresses the market need for the connectivity and security of smart objects.

IDEMIA is one of the leading players in Augmented Identity that provides a trusted environment enabling citizens and consumers. The company enables its users to perform daily activities in the physical as well as in the digital world.

Capgemini is a leader in consulting, technology services and digital transformation.

According to the Juniper research, IoT will create lots of opportunities in different industry segments despite cybercrime costs quadrupled between 2015 and 2019, the announcement noted. This demands the increase in connectivity and security for IoT devices as they scale.

Executive Opinion

Executive Vice-President for Connected Objects activities at IDEMIA, Yves Portalier, said, “We are thrilled to join forces with Capgemini, given the excellent fit of our mutual services. Boosted by our M-TRUST solution, IDEMIA brings its globally reputed expertise to Capgemini with a view to stepping up security for Capgemini’s clients involved in various sectors that are complementary to those we serve.”

Director of Digital Manufacturing at Capgemini, Jean-Pierre Petit, said, “The basic foundation of product or industrial analytics and AI is connectivity coupled with security. Capgemini’s agreement with IDEMIA will provide a unique, fully agnostic, configurable and highly secure platform from an end-point device to the cloud.”

Details on Partnership

The new platform gets a specific set of capabilities from both IDEMIA and Capgemini for future of device management technology. IDEMIA brings in their M-TRUST solution that guarantees device security of all collected data, command and configurations sent to connected IoT devices. Capgemini's IoT device management platform X-IoT securely connects and manages any type of gateway and protocols to the cloud.

The announcement noted that the joint platform brings smart devices much needed security and connectivity while simplifying the device on-boarding, configuration and integration with existing customer back-end systems.

IoT space is not new to IDEMIA. IDEMIA’s Smart Connect service already facilitates eSIM provisioning for SK Telecom’s smartwatch. At the same time, Microsoft and IDEMIA are discussing how eSIM technology can be brought to personal computers to secure IT processes and remote connectivity.
