iProof is The Foundation for Internet of Things™
Nobody questions the enormous power and value of connecting socially. But what about connecting us to the products we use and consume on a daily basis?
How about creating social spaces surrounding the products we use? You may have heard the buzz surrounding “The Internet of Things” or “The Internet of Everything” and wondered why Google paid $3 billion for Nest, an intelligent home thermostat.
The answer is simple. Google, like many others, realizes the tremendous value of connecting us beyond social circles and to the “things” we interact with in and out of our homes.
Even though products like Nest, which connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi or cellular networks, are considered part of the “Internet of Things,” at iProof we like to think of those already connected items as the Internet itself. In other words, we prefer to think of the “Internet of Things” as the act of taking dumb, simple objects that don’t have sensors and connecting them to the Internet via our mobile devices.
iProof ONE Identity Engine™
The Identity Engine is the heart of iProof’s “Internet of Things” platform. This engine powers each of the unique digital identities used to connect everyday things to the web.
It was built on a proprietary, hybrid database system that makes it very flexible to meet the needs of any customer, very quickly, without having to modify its design for each solution.
Employing a set of standards-based RESTful Web service APIs, iProof’s Identity Engine allows for the quick creation and management of millions, or billions if so required, of unique digital identities for the real world items it brings to life.
This open API standard also makes the iProof Identity Engine compatible with a wide array of ERP and ERM systems, E-Commerce, and most social networks. This essentially links every unique identity to any type of system used by the item’s manufacturer, distributor, retailer or consumer.
