Sierraware Introduces ARM TrustZone-based Malware Protection and Integrity Management

Smartphone and Tablet Manufacturers Can Secure Mobile Apps from Compromise 

Sunnyvale, CA, March 14, 2013 –- Sierraware, the embedded virtualization company, announced it has released SierraDefense to combat mobile malware. Built for the SierraTEE secure operating system, SierraDefense detects malware by examining the metadata and the behavior of applications running on a high-level operating system such as Linux or Android. 

SierraDefense leverages the hardware security extensions of ARM TrustZone to protect itself from attacks by malware and rootkits. This means that malicious code running in the standard operating system cannot disable SierraDefense, which is installed in the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). 

Mobile security is a growing concern for consumers and businesses. Consumers want to access applications, play videos, and purchase goods from their phones without worrying about malware. Businesses must contend with an increasingly mobile workforce that uses phones and tablets to access enterprise data. SierraDefense can allay the fears of consumers and businesses alike by hardening mobile devices against attack. With SierraDefense, manufacturers can embed ironclad malware protection into their devices. 

“Security will be a key differentiator for phone vendors in 2014,” said Gopal Jayaraman, CEO of Sierraware. “Vendors that offer secure platforms with anti-malware software built into every device will be able set themselves apart from their peers. SierraDefense can provide that protection. It is specially designed to run on mobile platforms.” 

SierraDefense combines an offline file scanner, a live application scanner, a kernel rootkit scanner, and keylogger detection that together can capture and eliminate malware. It can be configured to scan systems, generate reports, and quarantine undesirable applications.
