Inside Secure and Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) deepen cooperation to provide embedded security to Japanese market

Inside Secure's leading certified cryptography and secure communication protocols coupled with Toshiba Information Systems (Japan)distribution wins business at multiple OEMs

Aix-en-Provence, France, and Tokyo, October 3, 2017 – Inside Secure (Euronext Paris: INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announces it is working closely with Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) Corporation,in the Japanese market to address the large and fast-growing demand for advanced security in cars, IoT devices and state-of-the-art printers.

Today’s printers perform many functions that use or transmit confidential and sensitive information, making them very vulnerable to security hacks. As such, there are specific compliance requirements, such as NIAP initiative (National Information Assurance Partnership) for the US government that must be met in order to be sold to these customers. Within large multi-function printers, there are roughly 30 different applications that perform cryptographic operations. These include supporting IPsec to allow devices to send confidential documents to print over a secure connection and SSL/TLS for remote monitoring and management.

Inside Secure is a recognized leader of FIPS-certified cryptography (the U.S. government computer security standard, TLS and IPsec technology, with its industry-leading GuardTLS™ tookit and GuardIPSec™ toolkit for IPSec protocol. These proprietary solutions efficiently integrate cryptography and are feature-rich, which are ideal to meet the high security needs for advanced printers without open source constraints. In addition, Inside Secure has the broadest range of security tools across FIPS, SSL and IPSec, making the company an ideal partner for Toshiba Information Systems (Japan).

For small IoT devices such as garage door openers, light switches and medical sensors, low-cost microcontrollers are often used that require a very secure connection. Inside Secure’s GuardTLS_Tiny™ has the industry’s smallest memory footprint, running on a very small processor with very little memory. Other solutions require more memory or a more powerful microcontroller.

“We are excited to work with Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) to bring our advanced security technology to the Japanese market,” said Simon Blake Wilson, chief operating officer of Inside Secure. “We see a high demand to secure IoT and printer devices and are able to meet this demand with the strong relationships and knowledge of the market Toshiba Information Systems (Japan) brings. We’ve already seen the benefits with key customer wins at major Japanese players.”

“We are pleased to cooperate closely with a partner such as Inside Secure, which has an extremely competitive security offering for our market,” said Kazumasa Watanabe, vice president and director of Toshiba Information Systems (Japan). “We look forward to growing the Japanese business together by being the best at meeting the security needs of OEM players.”[...][...]
