SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 9, 2016 — whiteCryption, an Intertrust company that provides advanced application security solutions, and Trustonic, a provider of Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) for mobile and IoT devices, today announced that Trustonic has licensed whiteCryption’s Code Protection and Secure Key Box software solutions. The complementary products will enable Trustonic security solutions for a wider range of mobile apps and IoT devices without the need for Trustonic customers to learn or use new APIs.
Trustonic provides a hardware security platform for developers building trusted applications. Trustonic Hybrid Protection (THP) is an adaptable security solution that brings together the best of software and hardware secured solutions into one product. Trustonic combines the hardware-enabled security technologies found in over 500 million smart connected devices with the software protection from whiteCryption, to offer secure, simpler, faster and richer user experiences for consumers.
whiteCryption’s technology extends the trusted perimeter of Trustonic’s hardware security by adding a protective software layer that delivers obfuscation, self-defense and tamper resistance, and provides application security to platforms lacking TEE hardware-based security. Trustonic Hybrid Protection equips users with the highest level of security their device can provide. When the Trustonic TEE is not available, Trustonic Software Protection provides world-class software-enabled security features. The combination of Trustonic and whiteCryption technologies under a single API simplifies code development and deployment into one source.
