Secure Thingz Accelerates Secure Programming for IoT Devices with Release of Next-Generation Secure Deploy Platform

New scripting technology dramatically reduces time required to support new use cases

CAMBRIDGE, England--()--Secure Thingz, a global domain expert in device security, embedded systems, and lifecycle management, announced the release of its next-generation Secure Deploy platform, which accelerates the delivery of secure Internet of Things (IoT) devices and speeds the introduction of new devices from silicon 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 latest release, Secure Deploy 2.0, introduces a proprietary scripting technology, which improves time to market by making it easier for partners to build the complex certificate and key manipulation frameworks required to securely provision various security devices. In the previous release, the provisioning process required the development of complex, semi-custom programs which necessitated substantial specialist engineering support.

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,” said Haydn Povey, CEO of Secure Thingz. “The new release will better serve the accelerating demand by reducing the time and effort required to support the wide variety of use cases that can be implemented.”

The Secure Deploy architecture 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 quicker, 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, is integrated into the Data I/O SentriX™ security provisioning platform, which is available at leading distributors and programming houses 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.

IoT OEMs are recognizing the need for a cost-effective and integrated method to enable hardware-based security from product design through manufacturing,” said Anthony Ambrose, president and CEO of Data I/O Corporation. “The latest release of the Secure Deploy architecture supports our commitment to enabling the industry by making security provisioning available to OEMs of all size and volume with no minimum order quantities.”

Availability of Secure Deploy

The latest release of Secure Deploy architecture is available on platforms operating at Arrow and Avnet programming centers globally, providing secure provisioning services in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
