-- Partnership Delivers SMS Mobile Authentication to Tieto Customers
HELSINKI, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventors of the SSH protocol, today announced that it has signed a service provider agreement with Tieto, a major Nordic integrator for its Tectia MobileID solution. The agreement will give Tieto an additional outlet to provide a modern, cost-effective, mobile authentication platform as a service to its customers.
"We are delighted for the opportunity to work closely together with Tieto on this initiative," said Samuli Siltanen, head of mobile authentication for SSH. "Our customers continue to move their infrastructure into hosted environments, and Tectia MobileID delivers a flexible authentication solution that can be hosted in a private cloud without compromising security. Customers are seeking convenience, availability and secure authentication while keeping costs down, and Tectia MobileID helps them exceed these goals."
The scope of the agreement permits Tieto to gradually migrate the current base of its authenticating users to Tectia MobileID. Tectia MobileID is deployed with over 50 major accounts worldwide and supports a significant and growing customer base. The technology was a 2011 finalist for SC Magazine's "Most Innovative Technology of the Year" award.
"Tectia MobileID delivers the most superior ease of deployment and maintenance in any SMS authentication solution currently available in the market," said Siltanen. "With easy integration into existing Active Directory infrastructures, the Tectia MobileID solution can be deployed for customers literally overnight. In addition, MobileID provides a painless transition away from existing unwieldy token-based solutions. It just works."

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
