About SIM-Secure for IoT

SIM-Secure for IoT binds SIMs to devices, safeguarding data usage and access to corporate networks. As your connected systems grow, so does your exposure to risk of SIM card misuse. SIM-Secure for IoT takes on the burden of securing the SIM of each device that connects to your network. SIM-Secure for IoT helps you:

  • Secure IoT sensors and devices, industrial equipment, and more by pairing each SIM card with a specific device.
  • Prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to your private network.

Once the SIM-Secure for IoT feature is applied to a SIM, it is bound to the device in which it is inserted. If the SIM is removed from the original device and placed into a second device, the SIM-Secure for IoT feature recognizes that the SIM is in the wrong device, and prevents the device from connecting to the network. The SIM must be in the original device that it was paired with to allow a network connection.

License Types

SIM-Secure for IoT provides three types of licenses that you can assign to devices:

  • Lifetime – The SIM-Secure Lifetime license is assigned to the SIM for the life of the device. You cannot remove a lifetime license once you have assigned it to a device. The skuNumber for Lifetime License is “SIMSec-IoT-Lt”.
  • Flexible – The SIM-Secure Flexible license can be assigned or removed from a SIM at any time. The SKU is purchased a la carte. The skuNumber for a Flexible license is “SIMSec-IoT”.
  • Flexible Bundle — The SIM-Secure Flexible license can be assigned or removed from a SIM at any time. The SKU is bundled with other ThingSpace Services. The skuNumber for a Flexible Bundle license is “TS-BUNDLE-KTO-SIMSEC-MRC”.
