Internet-of-Things visionaries see possibility. And so do cyber thieves. Because the more connected systems, the more potential pathways there are to the valuable data they’re chasing.
Fortunately, system(s)-on-chip designers have a new and promising set of technologies to tackle this escalating problem. It’s called OmniShield from Imagination Technologies. OmniShield is an on-chip security architecture comprised of hardware and software technologies from Imagination. It gives engineers the power to isolate systems, assign resources, and also to police communications between systems using a pool of hardware-enforced firewall features.
