Wave Systems, a foremost expert on the growing trend of incorporating data protection directly into endpoint computing platforms, announced that it has joined the ARM TrustZone® Ready Enablement Program. The goal of the program is to deliver support and infrastructure for the implementation of enterprise security capabilities in mobile devices. This partnership means that Wave has united with other industry leaders in helping chip manufacturers design and roll out new industry standard security capabilities within ARM's TrustZone architecture to enable full cross-platform interoperability across PCs, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices.
ARM, the leading semiconductor IP supplier worldwide, developed TrustZone Technology as a System-on-Chip security concept that features a hardware-isolated space for a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). Mobile services can be deployed with enhanced security and convenience after core security services, such as cryptography, storage, and user interfaces, have been integrated.
ARM's TrustZone Ready enablement program has the primary objective of assisting chip and device manufacturers in designing robust, industry-certified security architecture into their products that will address the demands of service providers seeking to deploy secure services on secured platforms. Companies that have security blanketed across their entire system will significantly benefit from the cohesive set of design blueprints, market requirements, and checklists aligned with industry standards inherent to the program.
"Smart phones, tablets and other devices are essential for today's enterprise, and require access to sensitive applications and data. While these devices have excellent security for the mobile operator's services, they lack basic security for use within an enterprise network," commented Steven Sprague, Wave's CEO. "ARM, with the TrustZone Ready Program, is taking the lead in making sure that standards-based security implemented in the TrustZone Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) is integrated into chipsets for mobile devices. Wave is committed to sharing its expertise in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) implementations, application development and trust infrastructure support."
"Wave's infrastructure for managing TPM and TPM-mobile-enabled devices will allow enterprise users to exploit the full capabilities of Trusted Computing Group standards across multiple device types," added Jon Geater, Director of Technology for ARM Secure Services Division and Board Representative of ARM at GlobalPlatform. "ARM welcomes Wave into the TrustZone Ready Program as a valuable partner that will bring secure enterprise services to TrustZone secured devices running GlobalPlatform Trusted Execution Environments."
