AMD ties up with ARM to improve Hardware based PC Security

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), world's renowned maker of microprocessor chips is partnering with the UK-based chip maker ARM to build a platform security processor using the ARM's Cortex-A5 TrustZone technology.

"The future chip would work towards aligning both AMD x86- and ARM-based hardware with an industry standard security solution that spans multiple processor architectures and helps accelerate broader ecosystem support," AMD said in a release.

The two companies said they plan to incorporate ARM's TrustZone security technology into AMD microprocessors starting next year.

TrustZone, which is ARM's established security system, is the dominant security technology for smartphones and tablets.

Intel's acquisition of Mcafee technologies had already signalled Intel's interest in rooted pc security deep at the hardware level. Intel had said that it intended to incorporate McAfee's security technology into its computer processor chips.

The TrustZone features supported AMD APUs are expected to hit the market in 2013.

A large number of incidents relating to the loss or leaking of information, can be put down to user error or people not being aware of the consequences of their actions. An Internet security course will help ensure you and your staff are fully aware of the risks of using social media and help equip you to use them in a way that protects both the individual and the organization.
