Bloomfield Hills-based Karamba Security, a provider of embedded cybersecurity for connected machines, announced a collaboration with Cypress Semiconductor Corp. in California to enhance security for the automotive industry.
Karamba’s embedded cybersecurity solutions for connected systems are used by Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs to protect vehicles and reduce vulnerability exposures. The technology automatically hardens the full image of the connected system and prevents modification of the factory settings.
“Working with one of the industry leaders in embedded systems solutions enables us to add advanced cryptographic capabilities to our runtime integrity solution, leveraging the flash root of trust,” says Ami Dotan, co-founder and CEO of Karamba Security.
“More than ever, autonomous vehicles, industrial controllers, and the enterprise edge devices need security technology embedded in them, without impacting mission-critical performance. By teaming up with Cypress, we’ve strengthened our commitment to our customers to offer the most advanced cybersecurity solutions.”
Karamba and Cypress will leverage the Cypress Semper Flash in-memory compute capabilities for connected systems hardening to reduce cybersecurity risks. Cypress Semper NOR Flash architecture allows users to add advanced cryptographic capabilities to the flash in addition to its initial performance, safety, and reliability.
“Karamba’s focus on protecting the runtime and software integrity in automotive embedded systems makes this end-to-end collaboration a natural one,” says Sandeep Krishnegowda, director of marketing and applications in the flash business unit at Cypress.
“Built-in security speeds up the production of connected systems so they can get to market faster and safer. Our collaboration with Karamba enhances our security offerings, leveraging the unique technology in the Cypress Semper NOR Flash to provide complete and simple solutions for the automotive industry.”
