Certified Security Solutions (CSS) Announces Technology Integration Agreement with SAP

CLEVELAND, O.H. – February 10, 2016 – Certified Security Solutions (CSS) Inc., a global leader in secure digital identity and access solutions, announced it will work together with SAP (NYSE: SAP) to integrate CSS’ large-scale public key infrastructure (PKI)-based certificate management security solution with SAP HANA® Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things.
As a result of the integration, organizations will be able to use CSS’ Verdetto IoT Identity Platform together with SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things. Using the CSS solution will provide these organizations with a secure and scalable cloud-based solution that creates and manages digital identities for device authentication, data encryption, and secure communication.

“We see identity as a fundamental piece of the security puzzle. Our solution empowers companies to use digital certificates to validate the connections between devices to verify that the information generated is legitimate,” said Ted Shorter, CTO, CSS.

“Any scalable and significant IoT offering requires an end-to-end security solution — from the edge devices and sensors, through the routers and network gear, to the back-end data center and back to numerous user interfaces,” said Gil Perez, senior vice president of IoT & Customer Innovation at SAP. “SAP is leading the industry by co-innovating with its customers and partners to address IoT security challenges. As our customers’ needs and demands are on the rise, we are more committed to IoT security and driving innovation in this space.”

The Verdetto IoT Identity Platform allows for each device to assume an identity (via Identity V-Tag technology). With each device being uniquely tagged, data communication from each device can be properly identified and validated, ensuring that business applications and processes are working with legitimate data from authentic sources.

CSS also plans to collaborate with azeti Networks AG, Check Point Software, and Intel, with a goal of helping to provide customers with end-to-end secure IoT solutions. “These companies are also working to offer unique pieces to help solve security, efficiency, and risk issues related to the evolving IoT security puzzle. We look forward to working with these teams to offer customers market-leading business applications that are simple and smart,” stated Kevin von Keyserling, CEO, CSS.
