ARM acquires Pitango portfolio company Sansa Security, an Israeli hardware security IP and software provider

Aug 13, 2015

13/08/2015 · Israel · Computer Services , Software · Accel Partners , Genesis Capital , Pitango Venture Capital , Poalim Ventures funds , Sequoia Capital ARM has acquired Israel-based Sansa Security, a provider of hardware security IP and software for advanced system-on-chip components deployed in Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile devices. The company currently enables security in more than 150 million products a year and Sansa Security technology is deployed across a range of smart connected devices and enterprise systems. The deal complements the ARM security portfolio, including ARM® TrustZone® technology and SecurCore® processor IP. Terms have not been disclosed. “Any connected device could be a target for a malicious attack so we must embed security at every potential attack point,” said Mike Muller, CTO, ARM. “Protection against hackers works best when it is multi-layered, so we are extending our security technology capability into hardware subsystems and trusted software. This means our partners will be able to license a comprehensive security suite from a single source.” Sansa Security technology makes it easier for manufacturers to build secure products by offering a complete hardware subsystem that adds additional isolation of security operations from the main application processor. This is complemented by software components operating on top of trusted execution environments to perform security-sensitive operations. The acquisition builds upon ARM’s embedded TrustZone technology, creating extra protection against malware and malicious software. It is a system-wide approach that underpins security-related chipset and trusted software needs. This enables the protection of any connected device and management of sensitive data and content. “Our technology is already being used to protect data gathered and transmitted by a multitude of IoT and mobile devices,” said Coby Sella, CEO, Sansa Security. “Joining ARM will enable us to scale the business by helping ARM’s global technology partners to address their most pressing security needs. Aligning what we do with the world’s leading IP company, allows us to develop our products and capability to new levels.” Prominent investors in the company over the years include the Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners, Genesis Partners, Pitango Venture Capital, and Poalim Ventures funds.
