CENTRI Supports the Armv8-M architecture and new Platform Security Architecture (PSA) from Arm

CENTRI IoT Advanced Security Solution to Support PSA Upon Availability of Arm Trusted Firmware-M

SEATTLE, WA – February 26, 2018 – CENTRI, a leading provider of advanced security for the Internet of Things, today announced CENTRI Internet of Things Advanced Security – IoTAS has achieved industry-leading performance metrics over open source security standards on small edge devices. A series of recent performance tests validated by Arm, the world’s leading semiconductor IP company showed when performing like functions, CENTRI IoTAS was between 50 and 240 times faster than the open source components. Test details can be provided upon request.

CENTRI, an Arm® Mbed™ partner, will demonstrate IoTAS data security on the Armv8-M architecture using a Nuvoton Arm Cortex®-M23 based micro-controller edge device connected to Microsoft Azure cloud. The demonstration will be at the Arm booth, hall 4, #4-140, February 27 to March 1 at Embedded World 2018, Nuremberg, Germany. The Cortex-M23 processor is built for small, low-power IoT and embedded products. The IoTAS demonstration will demonstrate a complete solution providing encryption and compression of IoT data from capture to cloud. The tiny footprint and low resource requirements ensure small, low-energy devices can feature heavyweight security.

“Confidentiality of data is paramount in achieving Arm’s vision of enabling a trillion connected devices globally,” said Chet Babla, vice president of solutions, IoT Device IP Line of Business, Arm. “Integration of secure technology at a hardware level is essential for future IoT devices to be trusted. Security with CENTRI IoTAS makes it easier for IoT developers using Arm technology to build and scale, while meeting the requirements of small, energy-efficient edge devices.”

“Many edge devices simply do not have the available room to implement the needed heavyweight security, or any security at all,” said Grant Asplund, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, CENTRI Technology. “In addition to demonstrating CENTRI IoTAS on the smallest Arm TrustZone® enabled processor, the Cortex-M23, CENTRI IoTAS is also available for the Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 processors, which have reached billions of units deployed. Our work with Arm will enable microcontroller and device manufacturer partners to provide this powerful security to their customers and reduce their risks.”
