Partnership strengthens embedded cybersecurity in connected environments

Secure NOR flash extends runtime integrity protection to improve automotive and IoT platforms, says Winbond and Karamba Security, as the two announce a partnership.

Embedded cybersecurity for connected machines, by Karamba Security and memory specialist, Winbond Electronics will collaborate to offer enhanced hardware security, using secure memories.

OEMs and Tier ones use Karamba’s embedded cybersecurity for connected systems to protect software and reduce vulnerability exposures. The collaboration will provide cybersecurity offerings that leverage Winbond’s TrustME secure flash memories with Karamba’s embedded security policy. Winbond’s family of secure memories combines its NOR flash manufacturing process and hardware security technology, with a portfolio ranging from EAL5+ Common Criteria-certified flash memories to cost-effective EAL2 and Arm PSA-certified memories.

Winbond’s secure memory with tamper resistance allows Karamba’s Runtime Integrity security to focus on performance excellence, automatically hardening the full image of the connected system and preventing modification of the factory settings, explain the partners.

Ami Dotan, Karamba Security’s co-founder and CEO said: “More than ever, autonomous vehicles, industry 4.0 controllers, and enterprise IoT edge devices need security technology that is embedded in them and which does not impact performance. Partnering with Winbond, with its certified secure memories, strengthens our commitment to offer state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions and increases customer trust in our solutions.”

Hung-Wei Chen, director of Winbond Secure Flash Memory Marketing, added: “Security is everyone’s business, and every layer must take part in securing the overall system, so memory with built-in security is becoming indispensable. Winbond’s Common Criteria certified production site guarantees secured production, software programing, and key provisioning for connected systems.”

Karamba Security provides embedded cybersecurity for connected systems. Product manufacturers in automotive, Industry 4.0, IoT, and enterprise edge rely on its automated runtime integrity software to self-protect their products against remote code execution (RCE) cyberattacks with negligible performance impact.

Winbond Electronics provides customer-driven memory, product design, R&D, manufacturing, and sales services.
