Karamba Security is collaborating with Cypress Semiconductor to enhance security hardening for the automotive industry.

Karamba and Cypress will leverage the Cypress Semper Flash in-memory compute capabilities for connected systems hardening, using standard flash memory form factors, to reduce cybersecurity risks.

Cypress Semper NOR Flash architecture allows users to add cryptographic capabilities to the flash.

“Working with one of the industry leaders in embedded systems solutions enables us to add advanced cryptographic capabilities to our runtime integrity solution,” said Karamba Security co-founder and CEO, Ami Dotan.

“More than ever autonomous vehicles, industrial controllers and the enterprise edge devices need security technology embedded in them, without impacting mission-critical performance.

“By teaming up with Cypress, we’ve strengthened our commitment to our customers to offer the most advanced cybersecurity solutions.”

For his part, Cypress Flash Business Unit director of marketing and applications, Sandeep Krishnegowda added: “Karamba’s focus on protecting the runtime and software integrity in automotive embedded systems makes this end-to-end collaboration a natural one.

“Built-in security speeds up the production of connected systems so they can get to market faster and safer. Our collaboration with Karamba enhances our security offerings, leveraging the technology in the Cypress Semper NOR Flash.”
