Kontron, a leading global provider of Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today announced the company’s new embedded hardware security solution product line. Kontron is the first embedded computing supplier to offer full security protection embedded in its Computer-on-Module (COM) and motherboard offerings. The first product in its Security Solution line is the Kontron Approtect, a hardware and software solution that includes an embedded hardware security module and a software framework that provides full protection features.
Beginning with the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor, all Kontron products will be equipped with hardware-based embedded security as a “Kontron Standard”. This is only the first insertion point to an extensive product roadmap where customers can benefit from a comprehensive range of protection capabilities that include IP and integrity protection, license creation, management and tracking, license model implementation as well as the assignment of privileges and access levels. IP and copy protection are the first features available on the Kontron Approtect.
“Integrating security increases the overall value we can bring to our customers so we are pleased to roll these beneficial features out on all our 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based products,” said Kontron CTO Jens Wiegand. “We know that security is of the utmost importance in providing user and operational confidence in both existing applications and especially in new Internet of Things (IoT) designs. Offering an out of the box security solution makes the implementation process much easier, more efficient and our customer designs more futureproof. And, the unique benefit of Kontron’s Approtect is that applications can be secured, even post deployment.”
The first Kontron product with the Kontron Security Solution is the COMe-cSL6, which is available now. Additional products to follow include the COM Express® basic form factor and all of Kontron’s motherboard products.
