Sternum Joins NXP Marketplace as Its First Real-time IoT Security and Observability Solution

TEL AVIV, Israel–()–Sternum, the pioneer in autonomous IOT security and observability, announces joining the software partner community of NXP Semiconductors, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of and largest marketplaces for embedded controllers. Through this collaboration, IoT manufacturers relying on NXP for their controller supply will be able to seamlessly integrate Sternum’s patented security and visibility features into their devices.

Sternum’s Embedded Integrity Verification was able to disarm the attacks tested by NXP researchers with a CPU overhead of less than three percent tested during DD process. Sternum successfully addresses the rise of remote runtime attacks against connected devices and as such, is seen as a valuable addition to NXP products.

The embedded security market is set to grow to more than $10 billion by the end of the current decade, P&S Intelligence projects. The figure indicates a growing demand for protecting increasingly omnipresent connected devices and cyber-physical systems proliferating both in consumer markets and in business use against exploitation.

Often lacking both in security and visibility, IoT devices transform entire industries—and have emerged as a major gap in companies’ security perimeters. With no proactive security controls, companies have to rely on endless and expensive vulnerability patching, leading them to seek other solutions.

Sternum’s universal IoT platform creates a new reality in which whole fleets of connected devices can be completely secure and fully observable at the edge, in a simple, seamless, and autonomous manner. The patented technology is built to seek out the generic fingerprints of various attack exploitations – such as command injection and buffer overflow attacks – and neutralized the breach attempts in real-time, protecting the runtime integrity of the device against both zero-day and one-day assaults. This approach brings complete protection against a wide range of CWEs (Common Weakness Enumeration) and fosters a proactive IoT security paradigm that ditches the need to play catch-up with hackers through costly reactive patching.

With a comprehensive solution for all RTOS and Linux-operated devices, Sternum allows organizations to secure and manage a wide range of assets addressing the unique sector needs of IoT device-level protection and visibility in medical, industry 4.0, smart cities, energy, and beyond. Moreover, Sternum’s unique technology, centered around dynamic code analysis, anomaly detection, and runtime integrity verification, enables a ‘shift-left’ methodology, giving developers the tools they need to identify security flaws in pre-deployment stages, while they are less costly to resolve.

“NXP’s microcontrollers power devices that will work as the mission-critical backbone of entire industries and cities,” says Natali Tshuva, CEO and Co-Founder of Sternum. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with NXP to secure the future of digital transformation and ensure zero-trust from device to cloud. Our products offer companies a unique degree of protection against the most dangerous attack types, and significantly reduce the cost of security-related maintenance, and we are excited to see them used to promote innovation on a global scale.”

NXP and Sternum will be showcasing at the Embedded World Conference In Germany, June 21-23, 2022. Schedule a demo and a meeting here.

About Sternum

Sternum is the only code-free, device-resident IoT security, observation, and data-harvesting company. The company’s transformational, patented software can be embedded into any IoT device, no matter the underlying code, manufacturer, or year of production, and is always running whether the device is connected or not.

This self-sustaining, unified platform brings intelligence to otherwise non-communicative edge devices, enabling them to autonomously protect themselves without connectivity and generate real-time data; processing happens in the Sternum cloud platform when available.

Sternum was founded in 2018 by a team of highly experienced research, development, and business leaders, many coming from the Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) elite 8200 unit.
