San Francisco, CA, February 27, 2018Rubicon Labs, a leader in providing secure identity, trust and control services for connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, today announced it has joined the Open Source EdgeX Foundry project to unify the IoT market.

The EdgeX Foundry is building a common open framework for IoT edge computing and an ecosystem of interoperable components that unifies the IoT marketplace and accelerates the deployment of IoT solutions. Rubicon Labs provides end-to-end security and control as a cloud service for end-to-end IoT ecosystems and enables device makers to generate revenue by implementing, regulating and updating subscription policies and over-the-air (OTA) updates.

In its first iteration, IoT enabled devices to be connected to the cloud, but the emergence of the “edge” ecosystem has ushered in a new IoT 2.0 era. Designed to run on any hardware or operating system, and with any combination of application environments, the edge ecosystem accelerates time to market and simplifies deployments of secure Industrial and IoT networks.

Rubicon Labs’ cloud-based and scalable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution fits seamlessly with the Open Source EdgeX Foundry Edge gateway ecosystem. The Rubicon Identity Agent, a SaaS solution, simplifies control services and provides secure key management for EdgeX gateways — and extends down to the lowest-resource, smallest and lightweight edge device. Beyond providing the verification of true identity to users within an IoT network, the Rubicon Identity Agent allows users to enable and control device-specific policies and add-on services to generate revenue.

“Rubicon Labs is uniquely positioned to partner with EdgeX Foundry to design and develop innovative key management and IoT deployment control platforms,” said Julia Cline, vice president of product marketing at Rubicon Labs. “We are excited to join this industrial IoT-focused ecosystem and look forward to contributing secure solutions to the EdgeX platform.”

“Edge computing is quickly becoming an integral part of the technology cycle within digital transformation for businesses in every sector,” said Jason Shepherd, chair of the EdgeX Foundry Governing Board and Dell Technologies IoT CTO. “We welcome Rubicon Labs to our growing ecosystem and look forward to their expertise in developing innovative and secure key management and business enablement technology.”
