Hortonworks and Neustar Co-Develop Identity Management Service for Internet of Things Devices

Open source data platform vendor Hortonworks and identity data expert Neustar are cooperating to develop identity management services for Internet of Things devices. Goals are to provide better security and simpler management by registering and authenticating devices. IoT security is already a huge issue and will get bigger quickly.  It’s a great extension for Neustar, which was recently purchased by private equity investors.
