Stormpath Extends Smart Cosmos with Advanced Identity Infrastructure
Amsterdam (The Netherlands), San Mateo (USA), October 7, 2015 – As one of SMARTRAC’s initial Smart Cosmos Partners, user management specialist Stormpath has launched its customer identity infrastructure as an extension to Smart Cosmos. Stormpath provides users of SMARTRAC’s IoT Monetization Ecosystem with a highly secure, multi-tenant data-partitioning model, and secure authentication and authorization.
With over 1.5 billion transponder-manufacturing records added to the Cloud per year, one of Smart Cosmos’ core services, Profiles, is the biggest repository of object IDs in the world. With Stormpath’s identity service, every developer working with Smart Cosmos Profiles is able to create a unique, secure directory partitioned from other companies’ data.
State-Of-The-Art Security for Smart Cosmos
Stormpath offers state-of-the-art data security for Smart Cosmos users by encrypting and protecting all passwords, so there is no possibility to access or read any end-user passwords.
Jason Weiss, Vice President of Cloud Platform & Applications at SMARTRAC, sees Stormpath as very valuable asset to Smart Cosmos and its growing array of tightly integrated Cloud-based services: “We welcome Stormpath and its identity solution that is based on the latest best practices for security. With their extension, companies building their own IoT ecosystem can rest easy about data security, because it’s all managed by the Stormpath service.”
Alex Salazar, Stormpath CEO and Co-Founder, sees a profound need for user management in the Internet of Things. “Smart Cosmos offers developers a unique and ground-breaking platform for managing physical products across their lifecycle. Extending that functionality with Stormpath’s deep identity layer gives those development teams not only the best user security, but also saves precious development cycles. We’re excited to partner with SMARTRAC to enable developers on their platform to focus on product innovation and building great applications.”
