Verizon has introduced a cloud-based security suite for customers that is designed to secure Internet-connected devices and systems.
The Managed Certificate Services tool works to validate the identities of machines and safeguard the connections between objects, Verizon said Tuesday.
Eddie Schwartz, vice president of global security services at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, said the MCS suite builds on the company's digital certificate technology and managed security services that are intended to help customers manage identity and secure data.
The tool is designed to be compatible with existing applications through application programming interfaces and accessible via a Web-based portal.
Authentication services cover online shopping cart applications, license plate renewals, passport services, Internet-connected automobiles, smart meters and home-monitoring systems.
The platform is also built to help organizations comply with regulatory requirements.
