Meet the security challenges of the IoT

Horus Security Server for the IoT data protection

Protect your IoT data with the Horus Security Server

Secured identity management is at the core of the digital world security. The growing number of entities connected in the Internet of Things (IoT) results in more and more complex interacting systems to be managed.

With its IoT Security Server securing connected objects, their communications and the exchanged data, Atos provides a secure, compliant and scalable solution to face these new challenges. We support your enterprise in this digital journey, allowing you to focus on growing your IoT business.

The IoT Security Server provides functionality for the whole IoT device security management, paramount to control the lifecycle of your devices and networks.

Manufacturers can rely on it to securely distribute devices’ keys or certificates, while the inner database mechanisms coupled with Atos HSM product makes it easy to store device related information in a secure way. Such information is vital to provide full protection of data at rest, and to guarantee secure device communications.

Scalability and performance

As the number of connected devices is expected to reach tens of billion by 2020, this solution is designed to be highly scalable (multiple active instances within a possible redundant architecture) to this significant upcoming growth.

Flexible deployment

The IoT Security Server can be deployed on premise or in SaaS mode to be operated as part of an MSSP SOC, and may be hosted in secure data centres managed by Atos.

Accompanying growth

Atos IoT Security Server’s modularity enables the smooth deployment of a solution tailored to your organisation’s needs and can also be integrated with different partners to build a complete end-to-end IoT security solution.
