STMicroelectronics, Kudelski Group Partner on IIoT Security Solution

Kudelski Group, a proider of digital security solutions, has announced that, in collaboration with STMicroelectronics, it has ported its IoT Security Client with Root of Trust to the STM32 32-bit Arm Cortex family of MCUs. The solution enables consumer and industrial device manufacturers using ST's MCUs to offer secure IoT solutions.

The combined markets of the Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to grow to about $520 billion in 2021. Security and integration with existing technologies are frequently cited as the biggest barriers to IoT adoption in the enterprise. Kudelski's solution, running on STM32 microcontrollers, provides an MCU/brain that pre-integrates security and functionality in order to create smaller, power-efficient smart objects, according to the company.

"As companies continue to connect a vast variety of different objects to the internet, they need to accelerate time to market and minimize security risks to the ensure long-term success of their investments," said Jean-Michel Puiatti, Kudelski Group's senior VP of IoT security, in a prepared statement. "By working with ST to integrate our security with their powerful microcontroller range, we give our customers the ability to speed new IoT products to market while protecting the long-term sustainability of their business model."

"Working closely with Kudelski to port their IoT Security Client with Root of Trust to the STM32 family is another important step that ST is taking to extend and strengthen the STM32 ecosystem and assure customers of the security of their STM32-based applications," added Bertrand Denis, STMicroelectronics' product line manager for 32-bit MCUs, in the prepared statement.

Kudelski's IoT security platform provides protection from chip to cloud for IoT ecosystems, creating a robust device identity as a secure foundation for protecting the device, data, decisions, commands and actions. The platform can be implemented in different ecosystems with different partners, and has been adopted by telecoms, consumer electronics, medical and industrial IoT partners and clients, the company reports.
