Nok Nok Labs partners with Gallagher to bring FIDO-based authentication to IoT

Nok Nok Labs has partnered with New Zealand-based Gallagher to bring to market a new platform that provides an open standards-based approach for the authentication of IoT systems using mobile devices, the company said.

The new Nok Nok Labs-Gallagher platform addresses common challenges faced by facilities managers, ensuring only authorized users can access secure facilities and reducing cardholder management costs; access using a mobile phone eliminates the need for physical access cards.

Gallagher is a technology company in integrated access control, intruder alarms management and perimeter protection. The company´s security solutions are in use with national and local government, military, commercial, industrial, healthcare, transportation and academic organizations in more than 100 countries.

Nok Nok Labs provides organisations with the ability to bring a unified approach to deploy secure authentication infrastructure to their mobile and web applications, using standards-based solutions that include support for FIDO specifications and other standards.
