Data I/O Joins Industry Leaders to Discuss Securing Connected Devices at Arm TechCon 2018

Anthony Ambrose, Data I/O's President and CEO will participate on a panel discussion and Rajeev Gulati will co-present along with Steve Pancoast, COO at Secure Thingz at Arm TechCon 2018.

Provider of advanced data programming and security provisioning solutions for flash-memory, flash based microcontrollers, secure elements and authentication ICs, will join industry leaders to discuss best practices for designing and securing Arm based microcontrollers into IoT applications at Arm TechCon 2018. Arm TechCon takes place from Tuesday, October 16th – Thursday, October 18th at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA.

“Securing connected devices requires collaboration across the supply chain from silicon partners, development tools, distribution partners, manufacturing and cloud based device management services. Data I/O, in collaboration with industry leading partners, enables the design and manufacture of IoT devices with hardware based security for any OEM regardless of size, volume or in-house security expertise,” said Anthony, Ambrose, President and CEO of Data I/O Corporation. “Data I/O’s SentriX Security Provisioning Platform provide an end-to-end security provisioning solution that is equally suited for provisioning one device or millions of devices. Arm TechCon presents us with a unique opportunity to meet with partners across the supply chain and OEM engineers to discuss how we are democratizing hardware based security to enable a safer and connected IoT.”

About SentriX

The SentriX Platform provides a trusted, secured and cost-effective provisioning solution for OEMs of any size to embed a hardware-based root of trust in silicon during the manufacturing flow for their IoT products. This process of provisioning silicon devices enables OEMs to add their own unique identity which is cryptographically tied to an embedded hardware based root-of-trust and can prevent unauthorized firmware from executing on the device. An IoT product secured in this way also enables OEMs to provide secure updates to their products in the field. Hardware based security enabled by the SentriX system also ensures supply chain integrity during the manufacturing process. Unauthorized production and cloning are prevented with this approach. The SentriX Platform provides a secure manufacturing process for a wide variety of secure semiconductor devices.
