Security chip hardens mobile devices against vulnerabilities

Inside Secure : 19 February, 2014  (New Product)
The VaultSEcure secure element for mobile devices provides protection for DRM, virtual private networks and data at rest
Security chip hardens mobile devices against vulnerabilities

INSIDE Secure announces the availability of second-generation VaultSEcure secure element, the market’s first fully comprehensive mobile security chip. The key feature that sets it apart from other secure elements available today is its built-in applications to address security vulnerabilities in enterprise and entertainment markets, such as DAR (Data-at-Rest) protection, VPN (Virtual Private Network), DRM (Digital Rights Management) and others, a feature unmatched elsewhere on the market.
 
INSIDE Secure is the only company on the market capable of providing a comprehensive system solution for mobile security. The VaultSEcure device gives mobile platform providers critical security in a single package. It contains hardware, operating system and built-in applications, eliminating the need for OEMs and reference platform providers to engage with multiple providers. Equally important, the compatibility issues OEMs and reference platform providers face as they struggle to secure even one application in a mobile device are also eliminated. The INSIDE VaultSEcure solution provides cost and time-to-market benefits by offering OEMs a one-stop shop for their security needs. Not least, VaultSEcure still offers those functionalities expected from the conventional secure element such as NFC Payment, Transit, Access control etc.
 
With this offering, INSIDE is targeting Tier-1 makers of smartphones and tablets and reference platform providers. Mobile devices have evolved into open software platforms that are capable of downloading a huge variety of applications, including high-value services. However, not all functionality can be tested by the OEMs and increasingly malicious code is being created to target this class of devices. For example, more and more enterprises are encouraging their employees to bring their personal devices to the workplace (BYOD). Over the past few months, there has been a surge in malware attacks, resulting in consumers and enterprises demanding higher levels of security.

In addition, the VaultSEcure product is well-positioned to address the security needed to support the fast growth in connected devices. By 2017, 87 per cent of the worldwide smart connected device market will be tablets and smartphones, with more than two billion units shipped and with PCs (both desktop and laptop) representing 13 per cent of the market (IDC - December 2013).

“INSIDE Secure has a broad perspective on mobile security through its unique combination of hardware and software products,” said Simon Blake Wilson, executive vice president of the Mobile Security Division at INSIDE Secure. “Mobile security is a burning issue today. We are excited to bring the security benefits of the Secure Element to applications like enterprise and entertainment that have previously been limited to software security.”
