Icon Labs and Renesas Electronics America Demonstrate Security Platform for IoT and Industrial Automation

Joint solution provides complete platform for the Internet of Secure Things

Renesas Developers Conference, Orange County, CA - Oct. 13, 2015 - Booth 35

Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com), a leading provider of embedded and IoT security technology, today announced the integration of Icon Labs' Floodgate security products with Renesas' R-IN32M3 industrial network controller ICs and Renesas Synergy Platform. The integrated solution creates a secure platform for IoT and industrial automation and extends the Internet of Secure ThingsTM initiative into industrial control systems. This integrated solution is being jointly demonstrated at the Renesas Developers Conference.

Icon Labs' Internet of Secure Things Initiative defines a platform for developing secure, connected devices. The platform ensures that security is intrinsic to the architecture of the device itself and incorporates security management, visibility, device hardening, data protection and secure communications. These capabilities provide the foundation for the Industrial Internet of Secure Things. Natively securing the devices simplifies protection, audit, and compliance - independent of the secure perimeter, reducing the need for expensive and complicated security appliances.

"Security has become a critical requirement for our customers in all segments especially in industrial and IoT applications. Partnering with Icon Labs allows us to provide a complete security solution that is fully integrated with our hardware platforms," stated Semir Haddad, Senior Marketing Director, MCU and MPU Products and Solutions, Renesas Electronics America. "Icon Labs Floodgate product family provides a comprehensive security platform for developing secure, embedded devices using the new Renesas Synergy Platform for IoT or the R-IN32M3 ICs for Industrial Automation."

The integration of Icon Labs' Floodgate products and Renesas' hardware platforms provides:

· Integrated embedded firewall
· Modbus protocol filtering
· Intrusion detection
· Secure communication
· Authentication
· Small footprint crypto libs
· Integration with security management systems

o Security policy management
o Event and command audit log reporting

"The Industrial IoT provides unprecedented connectivity to the systems we interact with every day, and industrial automation systems are increasingly connected and charged with performing critical functions," says Alan Grau, CEO of Icon Labs. "Including security in these devices is a critical design task. Security features must be considered early in the design process to ensure the device is protected from the advanced cyber-threats they will be facing now as well as attacks that will be created in the future. By partnering with Renesas, we now are able to offer a solution in which critical security elements are integrated into the platform, ensuring that security is a foundational component of the device."

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
