Irdeto integrates with Geotab’s open APIs to provide turnkey solution for keyless vehicle operation

Irdeto is adding its breakthrough vehicle access and assignment technology to Geotab’s Fleet Management Services platform, MyGeotab, eliminating the need for physical keys


DETROIT, October 21, 2022 – Irdeto, the world leader in digital platform cybersecurity, today announces a new integration with Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation. 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.

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.

“This integration extends Irdeto’s footprint even further in the North American fleet management industry. Our keyless access combined with Geotab’s fleet management platform will provide unparalleled visibility, access, and control of fleet operations and performance with a single solution,” said Niels Haverkorn, SVP and General Manager of Connected Transport at Irdeto.

“Geotab is committed to providing fleet owners and managers with customizable solutions that help address their specific needs,” said Scott Sutarik, VP Enterprise Solutions at Geotab. “We are pleased to provide companies like Irdeto with the flexibility to integrate with our open APIs to create solutions that can help customers increase security, save money and streamline operations.”
