Ayla Networks Announces Enhancements To Its IoT Platform

Ayla Networks has announced enhancements to its Internet of Things (IoT) platform that will help propel manufacturers of connected products toward the next generation of the IoT.

According to a press release, these enhancements will enable manufacturers to forge closer customer relationships and improve their IoT return on investment (ROI).

“In the seven years since founding Ayla, we’ve seen manufacturers’ questions evolve from, ‘How do we connect to the IoT?’ to, ‘Now that we’re connected, what should we do next?’” said David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks. “These latest enhancements to the Ayla IoT platform encourage greater consumer adoption and brand affinity. By continually advancing our Ayla IoT platform and ecosystem, we enable manufacturing businesses to evolve at the speed of IoT.”

The enhancements include Amazon Alexa integration, which allows manufacturers to tap into consumers’ strong desire for smart home voice control; Ayla Insights 2.0, an upgrade to its IoT platform service that delivers actionable IoT data to help manufacturers improve all phases of the product lifecycle; and integrations with mnubo to provide out-of-the-box descriptive IoT insights and advanced data science to help manufacturers reduce their service and maintenance costs.

In addition, the platform’s new mobile data streaming service (DSS) provides the automatic and seamless updating of consumer IoT mobile apps from the Ayla cloud, without manufacturers or consumers having to do anything. There is also an extra layer of security with multi-factor authentication, as well as additional WeChat support that allows the millions of WeChat users in China and throughout Asia to use their credentials to log in, set up and operate Ayla-enabled IoT devices.



Digital transformation has been forcefully accelerated, but how does that agility translate into the fight against COVID-era attacks and sophisticated identity threats?

Now, advances in identity data and using different weights on the payment mix afford new opportunities to arm organizations and their customers against cyberthreats. From the latest in machine learning for fraud and risk, to corporate treasury teams working in new ways with new datasets, learn from experts how digital identity, together with advances like real-time payments, combine to engender trust and enrich relationships.
