ARM acquires Sansa Security enhances security features

ARM has acquired Sansa Security to expand its security capabilities and to enhance protection for sensitive data content on any connected device.

Sansa Security enhances security features as Sansa Security technology is deployed across smart connected devices and enterprise system.

The company did not disclose the financial terms of the acquisition of Sansa Security.

The company said deal compliments the ARM security portfolio including ARM TrustZone technology and SecureCore processor IP.

In addition, manufacturers can build secure products by offering a complete hardware subsystem that adds additional isolation of security operations from the main application processor using Sansa Security Technology.

The acquisition creates extra protection against malware and malicious software and enables protection of any connected device and management of sensitive data and content.


“Protection against hackers works best when it is multi-layered, so we are extending our security technology capability into hardware subsystems and trusted software,” said Mike Muller, CTO, ARM.

“Joining ARM will enable us to scale the business by helping ARM’s global technology partners to address their most pressing security needs,” said Coby Sella, CEO, Sansa Security.

Last year, MediaTek deployed Sansa Silicon for TrustZone for use in its next-generation mobile processors.

In February, ARM acquired IoT security software company Offspark to assist developers to use the ARM mbed platform to design and build IoT products with better communication security and software cryptography.
