Illicit access to networked embedded systems will soon be a primary goal for hackers. Even more important from the business aspect, are the protection of products against reproduction or modification and the protection against leakage of user data. In markets where the value creation chain relies on original equipment manufacturers (OEM), original design manufacturers (ODM) and electronic contract manufacturers (ECM) protection against clones is a must. Therefore the firmware of embedded systems is a central asset to be protected. It implements core know-how and makes it often the key differentiator for the product quality. With widespread connection of devices, the protection of the embedded software and secure remote access to the systems is becoming a mission-critical technology for vendors. The proper protection of digital content in such an environment is a complex task that requires security specialists. It’s a huge challenge to build up and maintain this specialized IT-security know-how. Embedded Concierge is a comprehensive protection solution, designed by experienced IT security experts, that considers protection throughout the whole life-cycle of embedded systems.
To protect your systems throughout the whole life-cycle, Embedded Concierge includes the following aspects:
1. Security during development:
2. Security during production:
3. Secure field operation:
The innovation of our approach is to offer security as a service. Rather than treating security as a “non-functional requirement”, we emphasize the benefits arising from proper protection, like new possibilities for your products coming with secure remote configuration, secure updates etc. We want our customers to concentrate on their specific know-how while Embedded Concierge provides the protection and interfaces they require. Our product- and services-offers enable a cost-efficient entry for successful protection. For field operation we offer a pay-per-use licensing model that assures that costs only arise when the protection is required.
