I have just returned from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we were showcasing our MyTAM solution, and I can honestly say that there was never a quiet moment! Developers are really keen to secure their Android apps by using the TEE to protect their customers and valuable end user data.
As a fully hosted cloud service, MyTAM allows organizations to secure actions such as financial transactions, protect private data and stream content with digital rights restrictions. Apps containing this sort of information or protected content are often the most attractive target for hackers, and unfortunately high profile attacks on such digital assets frequently make the headlines. This is why it is important to protect sensitive apps and isolate them from the rest of the Android OS.
Working with Trustonic, the leading provider of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technology, allows Intercede to deliver fast, secure over-the-air provisioning of trusted apps to millions of smart devices in the Internet of Things. And with the number of devices rapidly increasing – Gartner predicts 25 billion connected devices will be in use by 2020 – it is only going to become more critical to have the ability to lock down valuable data.
