ARM acquires Sansa to expand IoT security capability
ARM has acquired Israel-based Sansa Security, a provider of hardware security IP and software for advanced SoC components embedded in IoT and mobile devices. Terms have not yet been disclosed.
"Any connected device could be a target for a malicious attack so we must embed security at every potential attack point," said Mike Muller, cto at ARM. "Protection against hackers works best when it is multi-layered, so we are extending our security technology capability into hardware subsystems and trusted software. This means our partners will be able to license a comprehensive security suite from a single source."
The acquisition builds upon ARM's embedded TrustZone technology, creating extra protection against malware and malicious software. It is a system-wide approach that underpins security-related chipset and trusted software needs. This enables the protection of any connected device and management of sensitive data and content.
"Our technology is already being used to protect data gathered and transmitted by a multitude of IoT and mobile devices," said Coby Sella, ceo of Sansa Security. "Joining ARM will enable us to scale the business by helping ARM's global technology partners to address their most pressing security needs."
