Secure Silicon-to-Cloud Connectivity

NetFoundry & Micron Technology, Inc. Enable Zero Trust Solutions

Partnership Overview

Micron Technology, Inc. is a world leader in innovative memory solutions that transform how the world uses information. For over 40 years, Micron Technology, Inc. has been instrumental to the world’s most significant technology advancements, delivering optimal memory and storage systems for a broad range of applications.

Micron's Authenta™ Technology plays a key role in the partnership with NetFoundry. Cybersecurity is a very serious conversation especially in the IoT realm. Micron and NetFoundry share the goal of securing IoT and providing ironclad protection against potential threats.

Micron's Authenta™ Technology provides a unique level of protection for the lowest layers of IoT device software, starting with the boot process. The approach of utilizing existing standard flash memory sockets enables system developers to harden system level security without adding additional hardware components, leading to a more affordable and robust IoT solution. A wide range of IoT endpoints and edge devices that use standard flash memory chips can now be enhanced for improved system level cyber security, more pervasive ero touch onboarding deployments, and future device management capabilities using this combined approach.

Together, NetFoundry and Micron Technology, Inc., combined with the power of Authenta™, provide Zero Trust silicon-to-cloud secured connectivity via any IP network in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) community. Our partnership is poised to bring a multitude of Zero Trust solutions to the industry, enabling unmatched security with identity-driven connectivity at scale and global reach.

Solution Overview

Silicon-to-Cloud Security in Action

  • By combining the agility, security, and scale that NetFoundry brings to connectivity with immutable identity from Micron, automated Zero Trust IIoT deployments are now a reality.

  • Connect and protect highly distributed endpoints with automation-based Zero Trust and immutable identity from silicon via the network to the cloud.

  • Utilize identity-bound AppWANs for micro-segmented connectivity and services that are natively multi-cloud.

  • View the solution spotlight to the right. The IIoT device with the on-board Micron Authenta flash technology can generate immutable identity certificates that can be transmitted and exchanged to other components through programming.

  • View the solution spotlight to the right. The NetFoundry endpoint software, which is embedded in the IIoT device, communicates and exchanges certificates with the device and the Micron Authenta chip.

  • View the solution spotlight to the right. Using the device identity, the NetFoundry platform sets up a highly secure, least privilege access connection from the device back to the application residing in Microsoft Azure.

  • View the solution spotlight to the right. By traversing the NetFoundry network fabric by way of AppWANs, the IIoT device is unknown (dark) to the public Internet (no publicly-facing IP address).
