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.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

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...
