Citing on the integration, Semir Haddad, Senior Marketing Director, MCU and MPU Products and Solutions, Renesas Electronics America said, “Security has become a critical requirement for our customers in all segments especially in industrial and IoT applications.  Partnering with Icon Labs allows us to provide a complete security solution that is fully integrated with our hardware platforms.” “Icon Labs Floodgate product family provides a comprehensive security platform for developing secure, embedded devices using the new Renesas Synergy Platform for IoT or the R-IN32M3 ICs for Industrial Automation.”

“The Industrial IoT provides unprecedented connectivity to the systems we interact with every day, and industrial automation systems are increasingly connected and charged with performing critical functions,” says Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs.  “Including security in these devices is a critical design task.  Security features must be considered early in the design process to ensure the device is protected from the advanced cyber-threats they will be facing now as well as attacks that will be created in the future.

Icon Labs’ Internet of Secure Things Initiative defines a platform for developing secure, connected devices.  The platform ensures that security is intrinsic to the architecture of the device itself and incorporates security management, visibility, device hardening, data protection and secure communications.    These capabilities provide the foundation for the Industrial Internet of Secure Things.

By partnering with Renesas, we now are able to offer a solution in which critical security elements are integrated into the platform, ensuring that security is a foundational component of the device said Grau.

Icon Labs’ Floodgate solution for IoT and industrial automation is exclusively obtainable from Icon Labs.
