GRITY Secure Virtualization reduces costs through processor consolidation, improves system security and reliability, and reduces the certification burden in mission critical applications such as banking, industrial control, and medical systems. ISV supports TrustZone technology-enabled ARM cores – including the ARM1176JZ(F)-S, Cortex-A8 and Cortex-A9 processors – on leading system-on-chip (SoC) implementations from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), Freescale, and other semiconductor partners.
“ARM’s TrustZone technology provides a high-performance yet power-efficient approach to virtualization,” said Gordon Jones, vice president of Green Hills Software’s Embedded Virtualization Business Unit. “INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization enables the deployment of trustworthy applications, such as network authentication and digital rights management, sandboxed from the general purpose operating environment. This architecture enables ARM Powered® devices to enjoy the best of both worlds – uncompromising security alongside all the bells and whistles of Linux, Android, Windows® Mobile, and other leading multimedia environments.”
“We are pleased to welcome Green Hills Software to ARM’s ecosystem of TrustZone software providers,” commented Mike Inglis, executive vice president and general manager, ARM Processor Division. “ARM TrustZone technology coupled with software such as INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization delivers the security foundations for mobile and consumer devices that are increasingly called upon to manage critical information.”
“Green Hills Software is a long-time leading software supplier for TI’s OMAP35x customers who design a wide breadth of products ranging from medical devices to industrial automation,” commented Alejandro Erives, OMAP35x marketing manager, TI. “The new hypervisor and management capability of INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization offers our customers the confidence that their designs are built on a proven, secure and reliable platform.”
“Green Hills Software is a leading supplier of systems software solutions that are applicable for sophisticated devices in consumer and automotive infotainment systems,” commented Ken Obuszewski, director of product management for Freescale’s Multimedia Applications Group. “INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization provides an excellent match for the extensive security, management, and multimedia capabilities of the Freescale i.MX515 applications processor.”
