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 Android smartphones.
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 developing markets.”
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® TrustZone® technology.“
Trustonic integrates hardware-level security and trust directly into the devices through which we access today’s connected world. Trustonic simplifies user experiences in everything from mobile shopping and Internet banking to entertainment to collaborating in the workplace.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation. Both buyers and sellers want instant results, and from paperwork to paperless to mindless is the ultimate goal for any seamless transaction. The sweetest sweet spot in innov...

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
