San Mateo, California (PRWEB) September 27, 2005
Discretix the leading provider of embedded security solutions for mobile devices and flash-based memory, and Comsys Communication and Signal Processing today announced that DiscretixÂs CryptoCell solution had been selected by Comsys for inclusion into its integrated baseband IP solutions.
The increased subscriber adoption of EDGE and UMTS mobile technologies, combined with mobile operatorÂs renewed emphasis on device security, has made robust security a mandatory component of the digital baseband processor. This, combined with the expanded data capabilities of mobile devices has created a need for security applications such as secure storage and Digital Rights Management (DRM), remote update capabilities and mechanisms to ensure device integrity. All these applications rely heavily on robust, high performance security solutions.
CryptoCell incorporates a rich software layer including Security Middleware and Device Toolkits. The combination of CryptoCell together with the software components results in a security solution which can be seamlessly integrated at the applications level and is transparent to the end-user.
Comsys will pre-integrate CryptoCell with its EGGwareÂ and UEwareTM digital baseband IP solution for UMTS/EGPRS/GPRS/GSM terminals. The pre-integrated solution will provide handsets and chip manufacturers with leading-edge security and DRM functionality, and will significantly reduce time-to-market.
Commenting on the announcement, Elkana Ben-Sinai, CEO of Comsys said, ÂComsys provides complete baseband solutions to chipset and handset manufacturers. CryptoCell provides the most comprehensive solution for rapidly evolving mobile device security requirements. The collaboration will enhance Comsys' EGGware and UEware IP solution with integrated ready-to-use security and DRM features."
ÂContent downloads are likely to be among the most popular applications enabled by the deployment of EDGE and UMTS technologies. A robust embedded security solution creates an important foundation for DRM, device security and other applications,Â said Gal Salomon, CEO of Discretix Inc.
