MANHASSET, NY -- Icon Labs and Zilog are making a splash at DESIGN West with Zgate, an embedded hardware communication solution that aims to protect connected devices from Internet-based threats.
The joint technology offering provides Icon Labs’ Floodgate Packet Filter in Zilog’s eZ80Acclaim products with a security layer adding significantly deeper protection.
“Zilog and Icon Labs have been working closely together on this innovative MCU-based solution to keep in step with the world’s need for stronger security solutions across many embedded applications, “said Steve Darrough, Zilog’s VP of Marketing, in a statement.
“Icon Lab’s Floodgate provides protection from Internet-based threats by controlling what packets the embedded device is allowed to process,” said Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “Encryption and authentication may protect a device from a hacker trying to access the device, but Floodgate prevents the hacker from even connecting.”
The technology will be showcased next week at the ESC Conference
