A new partnership with Armour Communications will see Trustonic Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technology protecting UK government assets.
Armour Communications is a provider of encrypted voice and video communications technologies to the enterprise and government sector, with a key client being the UK government. The company’s partnership with Trustonic will see the latter’s Kinibi TEE solution integrated into its software.
It’s a formal agreement that builds on previous collaboration between the companies, with the new solution already approved by the National Cyber Security Centre’s Commercial Product Assurance program. In a statement announcing the development, Trustonic SVP George Kanuck said it “brings even greater security and privacy to government and enterprise communications at a time when hacking and malware is growing exponentially.”
Indeed, there is rising concern among governments around the world about new digital threats. In the US, a Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity report from December urged the incoming administration to embrace stronger authentication mechanisms, for example, while an upcoming security conference in Saudi Arabia will have a strong focus on protecting smart city infrastructure. By protecting assets at the device level, the Trustonic-Armour Communications TEE solution should prove valuable to the UK government and any other organizations to embrace it.
