Trustonic: The New Standard of Trust and Security for Connected Devices

Trustonic, the new company formed by ARM, Gemalto and Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), has today launched as a new standard security provider to address the increasing need for trust built into smart connected devices. The company’s technology enables service providers to innovate, expand and simplify user experiences in areas such as enterprise, commerce, payments and entertainment.

Trustonic is proud to name key industry partners at launch include 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, Cisco, Discretix, Good Technology, INSIDE Secure, Irdeto, MasterCard, NVIDIA, Samsung Electronics, Sprint, Symantec, and Wave Systems.

Trustonic CEO, Ben Cade, said: “Trustonic builds upon decades of experience between ARM, Gemalto and G&D in developing secure technology for connected devices. The launch of Trustonic marks a turning point in our connected world. It will enable us to trust our smart connected devices to protect us as they deliver essential services and innovative user experiences.”

The company will focus on the development of a GlobalPlatform compliant Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), which will offer a common security standard for connected devices. The TEE will be built upon ARM TrustZone® technology found at the heart of today’s leading system-on-chips, combined with leading security software and management systems contributed by Gemalto and G&D. Services that require high trust in people’s connected devices can gain access to the TEE on demand.

Trustonic will enable a connected device experience that begins and ends in complete security.

  • Consumers will benefit from enhanced services; they will enjoy content on any screen, experience simpler, faster and safer payments and be able to use their device of choice at home or work.
  • Service providers will be able to trust in people’s devices offering customers the services they want on the smart devices of their choice.
  • Network operators have the option to incorporate revenue generating value added services, such as enterprise security, payment services, and convergent service charging, to existing contracts.
  • Electronic device makers can integrate an application and service-independent security platform that isolates and protects sensitive assets such as passcodes, fingerprints and certificates, all of which enrich, expand and accelerate people’s digital lives with a seamless user experience.
  • Silicon partners will benefit from embedded security at the core of their system-on-chips that will attract high value services.

Trustonic operates an open business model, allowing device manufacturers to incorporate the TEE security technology into their own products while also enabling service providers to activate these capabilities later based on the services that people desire. The company’s technology, business model, and focus on open standards provide a consistent trusted foundation to support a vibrant ecosystem of partners.

Trustonic’s management team draws on a pool of executive talent with substantial and varied industry experience. Joining CEO Ben Cade are:

  • Jon Geater, Chief Technology Officer
  • Olivier Leger, Executive Vice President – Sales and Marketing
  • Stephan Spitz, Executive Vice President – Engineering
  • Chris Jones, Chief Operating Officer

Trustonic will headquarter in Cambridge (UK), with offices across Asia, Europe and North America.
