  • Has shown leadership in support of IoT initiatives, particularly in the automotive industry. It continued to deepen its entity relationship management capabilities in support of IoT initiatives, specifically to support complex relationships among identities, entitlements and things.

  • Added data centers in Germany and China to support data residency concerns in these jurisdictions, and to grow its presence in those regions.

  • Made its service granularly accessible through microservices and APIs; it can be implemented in public or private cloud, and to support partners that white-label the offering.
