Thundersoft has today announced a partnership with Trustonic to
introduce secure mobile services to its expansive customer base of
smartphone manufacturers supplying developing markets.
The GSMA predicts 1.9 billion mobile users in Asia Pacific by 2017, and
that growth will be fuelled by a diverse market of entry level and
full-feature smartphones. Android is predicted the biggest share, but
present day security vulnerabilities such as malware and keyloggers
undermine access to high value services such as payments, content
delivery and enterprise mobility. The Trustonic ‹t™-base Trusted
Execution Environment (TEE) addresses these concerns with an isolated
security platform that protects user data and the integrity of apps on
Thundersoft CEO Larry Geng commented: “TEE technology is
virtually unknown in China, but it presents the opportunity to bring
high value services to developing markets. We believe its enhanced
security will simplify user experiences, enhance the quality of services
available through apps, and enrich users’ lives. Our partnership with
Trustonic will deliver improved security for all.”
Trustonic CEO Ben Cade commented: “Thundersoft excels at bringing
mobile devices to market in collaboration with processor and device
manufacturers. We are excited to partner with Thundersoft to bring
TEE-enhanced security to a broad range of smartphones, and enable our
security developer ecosystem to deliver faster payments, access to
premium content and enterprise class apps on Android devices for
Thundersoft provides software and driver integration services to more
than 100 smartphone makers globally, and has helped create hundreds of
models. In joining the Trustonic ecosystem, Thundersoft gains access to
the technology and expertise to integrate ‹t-base into devices and
address the urgent requirement for improved Android security.
The Trustonic ‹t-base TEE provides advanced security features, offering
Thundersoft partners a ready-developed security platform supported by a
rapidly growing ecosystem of more than 40 security app developers and
service partners. Trustonic partners rely on ‹t-base to protect
biometric processing, user data entry, secure display of data and
content, user authentication processes and cryptography keys, tokens and
policies from malware attacks.
“Security and trusted environments are at the core of today’s digital
mobile experiences and economies,” said Ian Drew, chief marketing
officer and executive vice president of business development, ARM.
“The combination of Thundersoft and Trustonic’s solutions will
accelerate the deployment of secure mobile platforms in Asia making it
quicker and easier for the next billion smart devices to use trusted
applications built on the hardware security foundations of ARM®
