Secure communication is a critical component of overall security. It protects privacy and confidential data by ensuring confidentiality and integrity of the communication. It also provides sender authentication that ensures that traffic is coming from a trusted peer, automatically discarding malicious data.
GUARD embedded IoT security framework is a modular solution allowing IoT device and platform makers to deploy the security they really need. A common API provides the needed cryptographic and certificates tools. Applications may choose FIPS140-2-certified, cryptography, hardware-based security or standard cryptography, depending on their needs. A rich set of security protocols (TLS, DTLS, IPsec) are available for IoT devices and the IoT cloud.
Helped by a growing set of hacking tools, criminals are targeting mobile devices more than ever to access valuable data, threatening user privacy and confidential information. Common vectors of attack are on another computer using the same Wi-Fi, a compromised wireless router, or a rogue access point. To protect against malware injection or data theft, mobile devices should systematically use a VPN when on untrusted Wi-Fi. Our solutions rely on FIPS140-2-validated cryptography to protect the data through device encryption and IPsec VPN.
GUARD products protect data and communication from cyber attacks. GUARD family includes generic security communication toolkits for clouds and virtualized deployments (NFV and SDN) as well as products providing embedded security for IoT and mobile devices.
