Arrow Electronics has extended its global secure provisioning service to cover silicon from Cypress, Infineon and Microchip, in addition to NXP Semiconductors Secure Elements which participated in Arrow’s initial offering launched in 2018.
The service enables the rapid deployment of IoT edge nodes and gateways featuring hardware-based security features. Secure provisioning capabilities will be made available to Arrow’s customers globally.
Aiden Mitchell, vice president IoT, Arrow Electronics said, “Cybersecurity is a high priority for developers, particularly with requirements such as the European GDPR legislation and the responsibility it places on organisations to protect data and security. This means that the ability to authenticate IoT devices and quickly establish trusted connections to the cloud is now an essential element of any product deployment.”
Arrow’s programming and provisioning technology is based on a highly secured and reliable chain of trust. This consists of relationships with leading global domain experts on device security and Certificate Authorities; the secured transfer of customer IP and security credentials; and highly secure programming platforms.
There is support for registration for device certificates at multiple cloud service providers, and certificate lifecycle management services are also available.
Arrow offers complete end-to-end security solutions, including cybersecurity. These secured provisioning services are just one building block out of Arrow’s comprehensive portfolio of technology from sensors, wireless connectivity, gateways to cloud platforms, data ingestion, aggregation and visualization, analytics and security.
Service capabilities span ideation, design, integration, manufacturing, logistics, financing, wireless connectivity with billing services, marketing, monitoring and managed services, and sustainable and secured end-of-lifecycle disposition. The latter is becoming ever more significant with the onset of privacy legislation.
Arrow will present its secure provisioning services at Embedded World trade show in Nuremberg, Germany (Stand 4A-340, February 26-28).
