AMD, ARM form partnership to strengthen security solutions

A strategic partnership has been formed between AMD and ARM in a bid to drive adoption of an open, end to end security ecosystem based on ARM's TrustZone technology.

Aiming to provide a consistent approach to security, AMD will integrate ARM's TrustZone technology into its future apus by using an SoC design methodology. The companies claim that aligning both AMD x86 and ARM based hardware with an industry standard solution spanning multiple processor architectures will help accelerate broader ecosystem support.

"With AMD's support for, and inclusion in, the expanding TrustZone ecosystem, consumers and businesses can rest assured their data and content are secured by an industry standard security solution that spans a multitude of devices and operating systems," commented Mike Wolfe, AMD's senior vice president and chief information officer. "This example of AMD's ambidextrous strategy, which leverages our history of x86 and graphics innovation while also embracing other technologies and intellectual property, will help drive a more secure computing experience for our consumer and businesses customers."

AMD plans to provide development platforms that have TrustZone security features on select apus in 2013, expanding further across its product portfolio in 2014.
