Twilio Partners With Microsoft Azure IoT To Launch Trust Onboard

Twilio, a cloud communications platform, today announced Trust Onboard, a feature for its IoT SIMs that enables developers to identify and authenticate cellular connected devices against cloud services.

Twilio launched Programmable Wireless in April 2018, and has shipped more than a million SIMs that provide global connectivity to IoT developers.

With Trust Onboard, Twilio now delivers connectivity, device identification and authentication capabilities on a single SIM, dramatically accelerating IoT time to market.

At Microsoft Build, Twilio also announced integration with Azure IoT as part of Microsoft’s IoT Plug and Play connectivity, allowing IoT developers to sync devices to their Azure cloud from the Twilio Console, establishing trust as soon as the device comes online.

Twilio head of IoT and wireless, Evan Cummack said: “Cellular IoT developers are burdened with two major challenges.

“First, developers need to reliably connect large fleets of devices to cellular networks of different types around the world.

“Twilio’s IoT SIMs and Wireless Supernetwork tackle this problem.”

Cummack continued: “Then developers need a simple, secure mechanism to exchange data with their devices.

“Trust Onboard is our first product that helps developers bridge this gap — it’s a frictionless way to deploy a large fleet of devices, identify and authenticate each one to the cloud.”

As IoT device fleets get larger and time to market becomes more critical, identity management is increasingly painful for IoT developers, who have often had to invest significant time and resources figuring out how to securely pre-install unique identity credentials during manufacturing.

Having Trust Onboard certificates pre-embedded on each SIM reduces the time it takes to get an IoT solution to market while adhering to best practices.

Australian country director, Richard Watson (featured image) also commented: “The Australian IoT market is set to grow from $7.9 billion in 2018 to $25 billion by 2024.

“In order to realize this potential, Twilio believes that we must lower the barrier to entry for IoT developers and make it easy for them to experiment and get to market quickly.

“Today’s announcement of Trust Onboard and our integration with Microsoft Azure IoT does just that.”
