Protection of your application starts at the core.

Secure software that builds on secure hardware.

Secure Boot. Load trusted systems at startup

Secure boot is used to ensure that only trustworthy, signed software can be launched on your device. We implement a unique, trusted key at the lowest level into the hardware so that only your approved and certified application can run. The use of your digital signature to match with that key prevents malware from taking control of the boot sequence and risking sensitive data and services.

PHYTEC helps keep your application secure with software updates

The best way to keep your application secure is to run the latest software. Our goal is to provide our customers with feature-rich board support packages as early as possible: stable code, fast bug/security fixes and consistent further development. Most of our BSPs are vendor based and are updated semi-annually. This way, you can be sure that you software always includes the latest features.

Secure in-house manufacturing

PHYTEC has a distinct advantage over most companies in the industry in that we have our own, in-house manufacturing facility located in Germany. We aren’t forced to partner with third party contract manufacturers to build your parts. From your idea, to our design and manufacturing, all the way to your warehouse, you can rest assured access to your device is secure throughout the entire supply chain.
