ARM bets on Sansa to secure IoT

Acquisition will fight malware and malicious software attacks on IoT devices.

By Joao Lima

Cambridge-based chipmaker ARM has acquired Sansa Security, in an attempt to build up its profile in the competitive IoT chip market.

The company said the acquisition will help improve hardware and software-based security features and protect sensitive data on IoT connected devices.

Sansa Security is an Israeli provider of hardware security IP and software for advanced system-on-chip components, deployed in IoT and mobile devices.

ARM said the acquisition will complement its security portfolio, including the TrustZone technology and SecurCore processor IP.

It added that the TrustZone solution is a system-wide approach that underpins security-related chipset and software needs, enabling the protection of any connected device and management of sensitive data and content.

Mike Muller, CTO, ARM, said: "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."

Coby Sella, CEO, Sansa Security, said: "Joining ARM will enable us to scale the business by helping ARM’s global technology partners to address their most pressing security needs. Aligning what we do with the world’s leading IP company, allows us to develop our products and capability to new levels."
