TrustPoint solution meets Redline's uber-secure requirements and brings improved network performance to Redline's industrial wireless networks
TORONTO, Oct. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Redline Communications (www.rdlcom.com) Group Inc. (TSX: RDL), a leading provider of mission critical wireless networks, today announced that they have entered into an agreement with TrustPoint Innovation Technologies, Ltd. to incorporate TrustPoint's mSecureTM SDK and corresponding digital certificates into the Redline Virtual Fiber™ product line. Redline will also use TrustPoint's mCA™ Certificate Authority, a managed public key infrastructure service hosted by TrustPoint, to issue and manage the digital certificates for Redline's industrial wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) systems.
Redline has incorporated the highest levels of security in its wireless product line, and because TrustPoint's mSecure provides Redline with the ability to build highly secure network applications using Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), Redline can maintain its uber-secure requirements while increasing its network performance with faster security certificate processing. ECC, recognized by industry standards, provides high-levels of security and improved network performance for M2M communications.
"We won't sacrifice security for performance, but TrustPoint allows us to have both," said Bojan Subasic, Redline's vice president of development and production. "TrustPoint demonstrated that they could meet our very exacting requirements - with their products and services we'll maintain our ultra-high security, and provision devices onto our customer networks more quickly than in the past."
TrustPoint's mSecure SDK makes it easier and quicker for Redline to implement a highly secure network for their customers. Trustpoint's mCA Certificate Authority enables Redline to integrate and automate certificate issuance and management directly into its provisioning processes and allows Redline customers to maintain central control over the identities and authorizations within their networks.
"Redline is clearly a leader in the use of security on their networks, and now as they embrace our solution, they can be confident that they are providing their customers with the highest level and best performing encryption and authentication solution available," said Sherry Shannon-Vanstone, President and CEO of TrustPoint. "Redline is able to provide their customers the critical public key infrastructure needed for an end-to-end highly secure network, with the highest performance implementation available."
