Express Logic Integrates Cypherbridge uLoadXL Secure Boot and Secure Firmware Update Solution with its Industry-Leading X-Ware IoT Platform®
SAN DIEGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 15, 2018 — Express Logic, provider of the comprehensive X-Ware IoT Platform® Secure Cloud (SC) powered by the industry-leading ThreadX® RTOS with more than 6.2 billion deployments, today announced the integration of the Cypherbridge Systems uLoadXL secure boot and safe software update solution with its X-Ware IoT Platform.
The X-Ware uLoadXL secure boot and secure firmware update solution anchors the product root of trust, authenticating and integrity checking the X-Ware-based system application. Managed software updates are securely distributed and installed on the target product. The precertified X-Ware IoT Platform provides operating system, middleware features, and performance. Together the integrated system boosts platform security, safety, and reliability, while simultaneously blocking malware, reverse engineering, counterfeiting, and overproduction.
Express Logic has established itself as the safety leader in the embedded IoT space with its industrial-grade approach, including precertification to SIL 4 and ASIL D safety standards.
The Express Logic X-Ware IoT platform includes the popular ThreadX RTOS, high-performance NetX™ and NetX Duo™ embedded TCP/IP stacks, the FileX® embedded FAT-compatible file system, the USBX™ Host/Device embedded USB protocol stack, and the GUIX™ embedded graphical user interface development toolkit.
The Cypherbridge uLoadXL SDK is widely deployed today across a range of vertical markets and products including payment systems, industrial control devices, and medical instruments. It delivers features such as secure boot, root of trust, application authentication, and secure software update. The solution also includes in-device firmware and offline software management tools, designed for use throughout the product lifecycle, from commissioning to long tail support. The uLoadXL+ includes options or hardware of trust and secure data storage, integrated with tamper-proof secure element devices at a mass-market value-point.
“We are excited to roll out this solution with our long-established partner Express Logic, and to provide uLoadXL as an ideal complement to the X-Ware IoT Platform,” said Steve DeLaney, President, Cypherbridge Systems. “We see customers in the industrial IoT sector taking an in-depth approach to IoT security, safety, and reliability. Security planning starts with a TLS secure network, and extends to secure boot and safe software update.
“At the same time, medical devices fall under stricter safety standards, not only under regulations that include IEC-62304 test and verification, but also within the EU region under GDPR affecting data protection, privacy, and biometric data. Our SDK portfolio spans product operation from secure boot and update to secure IoT cloud connection and network protocols. Customers that are integrating uLoadXL, an off-the-shelf software lifecycle solution, can maintain focus on their product application, features, and time to market.”
“The safety and security demands surrounding IoT devices are increasing every day, especially in regards to the handling of sensitive or confidential information,” said William E. Lamie, President, Express Logic, Inc. “The X-Ware IoT and Cypherbridge uLoadXL secure boot and secure firmware update solution gives embedded software developers the essential tools they need to develop safety- and security-critical IoT devices.”
The X-Ware IoT Platform and uLoadXL are available today on leading industry processors and microcontrollers. Contact Express Logic and Cypherbridge Systems for pricing and delivery.
