Variscite is pleased to expand its ecosystem and strengthen the partnership with Sequitur Labs, a leading security company providing a complete chip-to-cloud software solution for secure device design, manufacturing, and lifecycle management.
The new partnership provides a complete security solution for customers using Variscite’s i.MX8 based System on Module (SoM) for IoT and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications.

In the next few years, Billions of internet devices are expected to be online, following an increased demand for smart products based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the network edge. Yet, the IoT market isn’t secure – about half of IoT vendors have experienced at least one security breach. Without a strong security framework, each connected device is a target for malicious attacks.

“With 75 billion devices expected to be online by 2025, device vendors and their customers need to ensure that their products are safe and secure,” said Philip Attfield, Co-founder and CEO of Sequitur Labs. “IoT security is no longer optional – whether it’s protecting critical IP on the device or securing the transmission of firmware updates through an internet connection”.

Sequitur’s EmSPARK™ Security Suite and EmPOWER™ cloud services assist IoT vendors in resolving their security issues, starting from the early design stage throughout the product lifecycle. Combined with Variscite’s trusted System on Module solutions, customers can focus on product development and be confident they are releasing them with the highest security, quickly and at low risk.

“The partnership with Sequitur Labs allows Variscite to extend its ecosystem and overall system solution around our SoM solutions for the rapidly growing embedded IoT products trend” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales at Variscite.

This successful collaboration between the companies started with the integration of Sequitur Labs’ platform with Variscite’s i.MX 8M Plus modules, the DART-MX8M-PLUS and VAR-SOM-MX8M-PLUS. The modules are powered by a 1.8GHz Quad Cortex™-A53 NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus processor with 800MHz Cortex™-M7 Real-time co-processor and integrated Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (ML / AI) capabilities.

Both are part of Variscite’s Pin2Pin products families along with other modules based on the i.MX 8 series and popular i.MX 6 products. The pin-compatibility options enable Variscite’s customers to benefit from scalability and extended lifetime in addition to reduced development time, costs, and risks.
Sequitur’s support in additional i.MX 8 and i.MX 6 System on Modules is already in process.
