Connecting and securing consumer devices

With every new device, device manufacturers not only are expected to deliver better, faster, and sleeker features enabling new and innovative services, they also need to meet increasingly complex security requirements. At the same time, fierce price competition drives the optimization of their processes and cost structures.

A once simple product is becoming a highly-evolved service ecosystem

Smartphones are turning into personal assistants. They act as central hubs to connect services, wearables and consumer IoT devices. As markets mature and replacement cycles lengthen, smartphone volume growth is slowing. At the same time, the market for IoT is diversifying and growing; technologies are evolving. Consumers expect fast access to new devices with the latest technologies – from AI to AR, from 5G to biometrics. As a result, device makers are expected to maintain fast innovation and launch cycles despite slowing replacement intervals.

Discover why securing identities is key for device makers

Connected device makers are facing challenging times – but they also have unparalleled opportunities to win new customers and grow their businesses with innovative, seamless, and secure services.

Combatting fading differentiation

More and more crucial innovation happens "under the hood”. But key differences invisible to the naked eye leave customers reluctant to invest and buy into new model offerings. Communicating and spotlighting new value propositions to consumers is becoming harder as the more obvious design differentiation in the market fades.

Competitive with an owned ecosystem and value-added services

Continuous, fast-paced innovation for annual flagship launches no longer is a recipe for success. It’s becoming more and more difficult to convince consumers to upgrade their devices. As a result, new business models take different approaches.

Secure value-added services delivered in an owned ecosystem promise opportunities for differentiation and monetization. But to stand out against competitors, device makers must deploy and maintain their critical value-added services over the full life cycle of their devices.

Optimize to counter pressure from price competition

Gross margins come under more and more pressure as price competition heats up. To remain competitive, device makers optimize their processes, their supply chain, and cost structures. At the same time, they are working on ensuring the perfect level of security and customer privacy as well as offering easy identity management and authentication - not only to build customer trust, but also to protect their image and brand.

Be the creator of a secure customer experience
Secure and convenient-to-use connected consumer devices are indispensable for nurturing the trust consumers need to accept and use security-sensitive services, such as payment, identification, access, and transport. Offering robust, easy-to-manage device security that gives consumers an empowering user experience is a strong source of differentiation.

Device-first consumers create new opportunities

In the not so recent past, consumers picked their carrier and then chose their device from the carrier’s list of subsidized offers. Today, many consumers select their mobile device first – creating exciting opportunities for device makers.

Easy onboarding and provisioning as well as secure connectivity and flexibility are key enablers for device makers ready to deploy their devices and services directly to consumers in a global market.
