Irdeto integrates with Geotab to provide keyless vehicle operation

Irdeto, provider of digital platform cybersecurity, announced a new integration with Geotab, an IoT and connected transportation solutions provider. Irdeto has utilized Geotab’s open APIs to provide its end customers with a turnkey solution for keyless vehicle operation.

Using the Geotab GO9, Keystone by Irdeto will interface directly with the Geotab fleet management
platform, MyGeotab, enabling total vehicle management, from key distribution to vehicle analytics and
providing increased security, profitability and flexibility for customers, the company noted in a press release.

Keystone by Irdeto is a secure, permission-based vehicle digital key solution that leverages Bluetooth Low Energy technology to enable proximity-based vehicle access using a smartphone. The solution allows the fleet manager to control who, when and how drivers and support functions can access and
drive vehicles in its fleet. Leveraging proximity wireless technologies, Keystone by Irdeto can detect an
authorized driver approaching and start preconditioning the vehicle even before the driver reaches it.

The elimination of physical keys can increase fleet efficiency by removing key distribution, key
loss/replacement and allowing dispatch functions to become centralized. It also increases driver
efficiency by eliminating key handoffs at the start/end of each shift and enhances driver safety by limiting access to the vehicle key.

Another benefit of the integration will be the possibility to retrofit and convert existing bladed key fleet
vehicles to keyless operations. The solution works on any vehicle with a bladed key.
