Software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, LogMeIn, has introduced Xively Identity Manager as a division of the company for a new approach to tackling the challenges of identity and access management (IAM) of Internet of Things (IoT) users and products.
Xively Identity Manager has been designed to provide a turn-key and white-label option for onboarding and managing new users of IoT devices.
As part of the Xively IoT platform, it integrates with Xively’s ‘blueprint’ capability that provides companies with a means of managing identities and access for employees, customers, apps, connected products and connected product data.
Xively by LogMeIn vice president of products, Paddy Srinivasan, said, “To date, most companies building connected products have been stuck between retrofitting enterprise IAM, which is inherently inward facing, using consumer Web options, which means sacrificing control to third parties, or taking a do-it-yourself approach.”
The IoT company said its Xively Identity Manager can provide businesses with the tools needed to roll out an identity solution to capture information of end users of connected devices, create a white-label identity that can be used by businesses to brand their own identity, embed identity in their own apps and web domains, map identities to devices for access control and work in tandem with Xively Blueprint on security and authentication.
It is also said to provide scalable access at runtime to ensure secure authentication at sub-second latency and build rich profile graphs of users to better map usage information and device data with specific customers and users for better service delivery and deeper customer relationships.
