Update: Synopsys Expands Security Solutions with Acquisition of Elliptic Technologies (June 29, 2015)
Elliptic's tRoot™ Hardware Solution for IoT Applications to be showcased at Mobile World Congress 2015
February 18, 2015 – Ottawa, Canada -- Elliptic Technologies, a leading provider of security for the connected world, today announced that SoC solution provider eWBM has selected Elliptic's tRoot™ technology, a future-proof secure hardware root of trust enabling unique identification and authentication, for their newest IoT chipsets.
IoT devices with sensors, actuators and other data sources transfer information into aggregation points and gateways that can funnel through limitless paths with varied levels of complexity. Addressing security concerns in this challenging environment with a robust and flexible solution is essential for widespread IoT service deployments.
With Elliptic's embedded hardware root of trust technology tRoot™, eWBM's low power microcontroller offers deeply rooted security with exclusive authentication and confidentiality capabilities that prevents a wide range of evolving threats in the IoT such as theft, tampering, side channels attacks, malware and other serious breaches and vulnerabilities. Elliptic's tRoot has a unique architecture with the ability to effectively adjust to future security requirements and standards, and enable personalization of features, extend services and environments to create business growth and monetization.
"With this new SoC for IoT, our main goal was to find a robust security solution for IoT applications that was highly flexible, easy to integrate and equipped with key features such as trusted boot, run time integrity checking, and secure key management," said Stephen Oh, CEO, eWBM. "We look forward to continued collaboration with Elliptic and their highly skilled security team and silicon-proven designs."
"To maintain the integrity of the IoT and the highest level of trust in devices for consumers, it is critical that applications support a set of fundamental security features to confront the complex and ever-changing threats in the market," said Vijay Dube, President and CEO of Elliptic Technologies. "Elliptic makes it simple for SoC vendors like eWBM to use tRoot's core features to protect security keys, processes and sensitive data, and we are pleased to provide them with a robust and scalable solution ready for the global IoT market."
With the growing popularity of the IoT, security is increasingly becoming the primary concern. Elliptic and eWBM provide a solution that ensures access to all devices are securely authenticated and users are securely identified to avoid security breaches, bringing privacy and trust to customers. Elliptic will be featuring tRoot™ at MWC Congress 2015 from March 2-5 in Barcelona, at Stand 7K50.
