Secure Thingz releases new version of solution for accelerated secure programming

Cambridge, UK / Uppsala, Sweden—November 13, 2018—Secure Thingz, a subsidiary of IAR Systems Group AB (“IAR Systems”), announces the 2.0 release of its Secure Deploy platform, which accelerates the delivery of secure Internet of Things (IoT) devices and speeds the introduction of new devices from semiconductor partners.

The Secure Deploy platform is an advanced, integrated solution for delivering the supply chain of trust, simplifying security implementations across product creation, manufacturing and management. The platform enables organizations to build upon secure foundations to protect their intellectual property across the life cycle of their products.

Secure Deploy 2.0 makes support of new devices faster, by supporting advanced secure provisioning of certificates and keys and ensuring the secure programming of applications.  The solution scales to support different classes of secure elements and microcontrollers.  The secure programming solution, which is built upon the Secure Deploy 2.0 platform, makes leading distributors and programming houses able to support the need for secure manufacturing all over the world. Once device family support is in place, additional use cases can now be implemented in a matter of weeks.

“Secure Thingz was founded on the premise of making IoT device security easier to implement, and with the latest release of Secure Deploy, we are enabling next-generation secure devices to be brought to market more quickly, and facilitating the development of new, exciting IoT applications,” comments Haydn Povey, CEO, Secure Thingz. “The new release will better serve this accelerating demand by reducing the time and effort required to support the wide variety of use cases that can be implemented.” 

Secure Thingz is a provider of advanced security solutions for embedded systems in the Internet of Things (IoT). IAR Systems’ acquisition of Secure Thingz was completed in April 2018. With the acquisition, IAR Systems secures its position as a frontrunner in offering solutions for security in embedded systems
