Security from Inception

Security is a journey, rather than a destination, and it is true that no system will ever be completely protected. The rapidly growing market of connected devices is facing major security challenges, with attacks ranging across IP theft, counterfeiting and overproduction, as well as data theft and potentially life-threatening sabotage. In order to solve these security challenges in a scalable and sustainable way, application security must be implemented right from start of the development cycle, to achieve security from inception.

Security from Inception is build upon the establishment of a robust, yet flexible, Root of Trust, leveraging the security functionality of secure devices, or providing a sustainable foundation for existing devices and applications. Vulnerabilities are minimized, updates and patches are authenticated and individualized, and lifecycles are managed protecting your application today and into the future. Threats will not stop - so we are working with industry leaders to make superior security available for all – delivering a secure and sustainable future for connected devices.
