“Simplifying and securing the connected device ecosystem is critical and a key goal for both companies”
Cybersecurity software provider Cog Systems has been chosen by Qualcomm Technologies to provide virtualisation-based security for its Qualcomm Snapdragon platforms, in a collaboration agreement.
Cog’s security and virtualisation APIs will be available in select Snapdragon mobile platforms, including the recently launched Snapdragon 855. This will enable connected devices, such as Android phones and IoT devices, to access Cog’s virtualised modular security technology, known as D4 Secure.
D4 Secure is a security and virtualisation platform for connected devices. Cog’s virtualisation enables end point innovation through modularity and provides a platform for myriad use cases like advanced biometrics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms, simultaneous dual OS, and others without compromising security or performance.
“Adding Cog’s virtualisation technology to our chipset platforms enhances our already robust security and brings significant flexibility for our customers,” said Jesse Seed, director of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “Simplifying and securing the connected device ecosystem is critical and a key goal for both companies.”
“Qualcomm Technologies’ global reach will enable us to deliver secure-by-design as a global phenomenon rather than best practice,” added Dr. Daniel Potts, CEO at Cog Systems.
