Athena Vice President to Speak at 2013 SemIsrael Conference

Gainesville, FL- November 14, 2013 - The Athena Group, Inc., the worldwide leader in high-performance public key and elliptic curve cryptography, today announced that Pat Rugg, Athena´s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, will be a featured speaker at the SemIsrael Conference being held November 18 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Rugg will present “Silicon-Proven IP Cores for Next-Generation Security and Wireless SoCs” at 13:40 on the IP and Cores track.

“Next-generation SoCs require next-generation IP not only to capture the requisite functionality, but in order to compete in the marketplace,” said Pat Rugg. “SoC designs are not only exploding in complexity, but also in the array of technologies required. Competition dictates that IP solutions, for both security and communications, will be fundamental to product differentiation and relied upon for product success.”

Drawing on decades of market experience, Rugg will discuss how achieving system-level security now requires advanced solutions for protection of both data at rest and data in motion, both on and off the SoC. While security was once required only for military and financial systems, the investment in today´s SoCs, both in software and in hardware, mandates that commercial systems of every type invest in protection of their IP embodied in that software and hardware.
