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.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
