One of the biggest road blocks for future IoT (Internet of things) growth is security, but ARM is looking to help address that by acquiring Israeli company Sansa Security.
A deal between ARM and Sansa Security could close within the next month, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. That ARM is sniffing around a company that could help put its chip designs in more connected devices doesn’t come as a surprise.
The U.K. processor designer has stepped up its IoT efforts with products launches such as the mbed OS and a number of acquisitions, including Dutch security vendor Offspark. On Monday, ARM announced a new chip design to address another challenge, battery life.
