  • du & Wipro collaborate to address IoT security challenges in UAE

Mobilk - du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), has partnered with Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, to enable    their purpose-built IoT Identity and Access Management platform for the United Arab Emirates.

Leading research and advisory company, Gartner predicts that as IoT usage grows, IT security practitioners face a bigger challenge with regards to  the related risk. According to findings revealed at its Security and Risk Management Summit, by 2020, more than 25% of identified security breaches will involve IoT . This innovative IoT security platform aims to address the potential threats to securing devices and information within an increasingly connected world. With du and Wipro unveiling the new IoT Security platform, enterprises can now benefit from a true device-centric Identity and Access Management solution. It will help to securely automate bulk provisioning of IoT devices, as well as add policy-driven credential management and end-to-end data encryption, while allowing rapid integration and interoperability.

 ‘Supporting the Connected IoT Evolution’

 Andrew Ward, Senior Vice President ICT Products, du, said: “As the world is becoming more connected, it’s our responsibility to offer innovative secure solutions to better manage IoT environments. In partnership with Wipro, we can now enable businesses across the UAE with a robust, device-centric Identity and Access Management platform to ensure trust, privacy and security of data.

Bharat Raigangar, Regional Head & Business Partner (IMEA) - CyberSecurity & Risk, Wipro Limited said: “We are excited to partner with du to offer an Identity and Access Management platform (IAM) for IoT. It will deliver secure outcomes for businesses needing trust and identity management at the centre of their operations. Wipro’s technology expertise and understanding of domain-specific business challenges coupled with du’s capabilities will allow us to create modern IT infrastructure solutions.”

‘Safer, Secure Industries’

IoT innovation will play a significant role in driving growth across key industries. Therefore, ensuring that data is safe and secure across IoT platforms will become a critical requirement for all industries. The launch of this new IoT device security Identity and Access management platform across the UAE, will allow all industries to maintain integrity, privacy and compliance while enabling efficiencies as they continue to innovate in the ever increasing connected world.  

The enterprise solution can be implemented to provide IoT device security regardless of whether the device is inside or outside the organization, and address security issues such as complexity, scalability, and owner-controlled security posture.
