Our Security Vision

Global domain experts in device security, embedded systems, and lifecycle management.

The vision

Our vision for a secure future is based on three fundamental beliefs:

  1. Security must be integrated from inception: Adding security late in the development process rarely works.
  2. IoT security needs to be straightforward, scalable and sustainable: Building security into the design process is the best way to achieve long-term robust and scalable security.
  3. By making security implementation easier, we will help our customers secure their intellectual assets, accelerate trustworthy product delivery and transform security from a cost to a benefit.

Making trust part of business as usual

Our mission is to make trust part of business as usual through scalable and robust security solutions. We are here to:

  • Make security implementation easier
  • Make best-practice security available to all
  • Enable security from inception
  • Enable business “as-a-service”, because value is transitioning from devices to services
  • Provide a secure Supply Chain: securing the full flow across the ecosystem - from development to deployment to update
