INSIDE Secure (NYSE Euronext Paris: INSD), a leader in embedded security solutions for mobile and connected devices, today announced the availability of second-generation VaultSEcure™ secure element, the market’s first fully comprehensive mobile security chip. The key feature that sets it apart from other secure elements available today is its built-in applications to address security vulnerabilities in enterprise and entertainment markets, such as DAR (Data-at-Rest) protection, VPN (Virtual Private Network), DRM (Digital Rights Management) and others, a feature unmatched elsewhere in the market.
INSIDE Secure is the only company on the market capable of providing a comprehensive system solution for mobile security. The VaultSEcure device gives mobile platform providers critical security in a single package. It contains hardware, operating system and built-in applications, eliminating the need for OEMs and reference platform providers to engage with multiple providers. Equally important, the compatibility issues OEMs and reference platform providers face as they struggle to secure even one application in a mobile device are also eliminated. The INSIDE VaultSEcure solution provides cost and time-to-market benefits by offering OEMs a one-stop shop for their security needs. Not the least, VaultSEcure still offers functionalities expected from the conventional secure element such as NFC Payment, Transit, Access control etc.
With this offering, INSIDE is targeting Tier-1 makers of smartphones and tablets and reference platform providers. Mobile devices have evolved into open software platforms that are capable of downloading a huge variety of applications, including high-value services. However, not all functionality can be tested by the OEMs and increasingly malicious code is being created to target this class of devices. For example, more and more enterprises are encouraging their employees to bring their personal devices to the workplace (BYOD). Over the past few months, there has been a surge in malware attacks, resulting in consumers and enterprises demanding higher levels of security.
In addition, the VaultSEcure product is well-positioned to address the security needed to support the fast growth in connected devices. By 2017, 87% of the worldwide smart connected device market will be tablets and smartphones, with more than 2 billion units shipped, with PCs (both desktop and laptop) being 13% of the market (IDC - December 2013).
“INSIDE Secure has a broad perspective on mobile security through its unique combination of hardware and software products,” said Simon Blake Wilson, Executive Vice President of the Mobile Security Division at INSIDE Secure. “Mobile security is a burning issue today. We are excited to bring the security benefits of the Secure Element to applications like enterprise and entertainment that have previously been limited to software security.”
Based on ARM’s fast-performing SecureCoreTM technology, the VaultSEcure solution embeds INSIDE’s pioneering JavaCard and Global Platform compliant operating system. VaultSEcure also has increased memory (1 megabyte) to handle the additional personal and sensitive data and keys needed to protect the many more apps users are demanding to use. VaultSEcure brings tamper resistant security to mobile devices to hold secure data and keys, and protects from side channel attacks, which are the key requirements of payment, ID and entertainment markets. The TEE, Trusted Execution Environment (as defined and standardized by Global Platform) is a secure area that resides in the main processor of a smart phone and ensures that sensitive data is processed in a trusted environment. Thus, VaultSEcure working with the TEE presents the ultimate security solutions on the mobile devices.

There, INSIDE will demonstrate its Secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) client, which provides the highest level of protection for the most demanding enterprise and government data, the target of the ever-increasing amount of mobile malware.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
