About us

It’s time to create a more secure world.

We are a frontrunner in a changing industry, and a future-proof software supplier enabling the IoT. And now there are new possibilities. Join us!


The rise of the IoT has really enabled us to build a smarter world and brought us all closer together. At IAR Systems, we believe that connected technology can improve lives on a large and global scale. But there are also major challenges that need to be solved.

The connected evolution creates a need for a security revolution. Let’s lead the way for a more secure world. Let’s democratize security.




We are dedicated to provide superior technology and services, enabling our customers to create the products of today and the innovations of tomorrow.

Our journey started in 1983 in Uppsala, Sweden with the engineer Anders Rundgren and his launch of the world’s first C compiler for the 8051 microcontroller architecture. Since then, our solutions have ensured quality, reliability and efficiency in the development of millions of products built on embedded systems all over world. Today, over 150,000 developers are using our software.

Throughout the years, we have evolved and fine-tuned our technology to stay ahead of competition and always serve our customers in the best way we can. We have friends at all major suppliers in our industry, enabling great knowledge sharing and powerful technology innovation worldwide.

Now, we have an increased ambition for future growth: a growth that we believe is built by exploring new technologies, new markets, new business models, and new relationships. During the last couple of years, we have built strong partnerships with several leading specialists in our industry and we took another massive step forward earlier this year when we acquired Secure Thingz, a leading provider of security solutions for the IoT. Together, we believe that we can create the necessary security in a world of connected products.

We might not be a very big company but we have a huge ambition. An ambition dedicated to new technology and new innovative products. An ambition to be a driving force in the ever-changing landscape of embedded technology. Let’s go!


We enable the IoT. Now it’s time to secure it.

With 27 billion IoT connections in 2025, we are facing major security challenges. How can we deliver secure products in a world where even minor failures can lead to major consequences? To solve these issues and to minimize threats such as IP theft, counterfeiting and overproduction, we believe that a paradigm shift is needed.

We have acquired Secure Thingz, a leading provider of solutions for securing the IoT, enabling us to provide new solutions for security in embedded systems.

We have always been strong when it comes to helping our customers create high-quality code, and for several years we have delivered solutions to ensure functional safety in embedded systems. With the acquisition of Secure Thingz, we are adding security experts to our crew, enabling a strong combined capacity for accelerating the development of the innovative security solutions that the market so desperately needs.
