Enables sensitive and valuable IP to be shared securely with minimal IT overhead
THEALE, England — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 2, 2014 — Sondrel, one of the world’s leading system-to-silicon IC design consultancies, is employing secure border computing technology from Zentera Systems to ensure IP protection with the minimum of impact on its customers’ IT infrastructure. Zentera's Hybrid Cloud Technologies enable IP to be securely accessed from diverse worldwide locations, ensuring that the best available design resources can be employed to get the project done on time at the best performance. Using Zentera’s secure border computing technology also ensures access to customers’ IP can be subject to detailed control and monitoring.
Sondrel provides outsourced design services to many leading companies and has design centres in multiple locations including the USA, Europe, China, Scandinavia and Israel. The company works in collaborative partnership with its customer base so it is vital that sensitive and valuable IP can be accessed securely and easily. Sondrel wanted to offer additional security assurance to its customers and selected Zentera due to the strength and flexibility of its hybrid cloud solutions.
Sondrel’s CEO, Graham Curren, comments: "Zentera's technology enables us to take security to a new level, strengthening the integration with our customers’ design teams, and enabling efficient project execution. As well as providing complete assurance of IP protection, Zentera's secure border computing environment requires minimal IT overhead, so this solution can be scaled up and down on demand while tightly-controlling access and meeting strict compliance standards.”
"Our technology enables companies like Sondrel to rapidly deploy new secure customer environments that support advanced engineering collaboration requirements", said Jaushin Lee, founder and CEO of Zentera. "This frees them to focus on their design business as the secure, dynamic border environment based on our hybrid cloud virtualization technology does not require any undue effort to maintain.”
