Enabling smart device security

Boston, MA—Bsquare introduced a packaged, security-focused service, Secure JumpStart, for device makers at the recent Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2004.


Boston, MA— Bsquare introduced a packaged, security-focused service, Secure JumpStart, for device makers at the recent Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2004. Secure JumpStart includes a bootable Windows XP Embedded operating system image, which incorporates an embedded security software solution from Sygate Technologies, various applications, and device drivers adapted to the customer's hardware platform.

Secure JumpStart also includes 10 days of engineering services for integrating Sygate’s Managed Security Agent for Windows XP Embedded, which creates customized group policy security settings; generates a binary Windows XP Embedded image running on the customer's hardware platform; integrates all applicable Microsoft security patches; and ports up to two applications from Windows NT/XP to Windows XP Embedded.

'Bsquare's Secure JumpStart builds on and significantly enhances security in Windows XP Embedded,' says Scott Sedlik, Bsquare’s marketing VP. 'Any OEM currently manufacturing or evaluating XP-Embedded for network-enabled devices should consider this innovative security solution.'

Bsquare adds that its security solutions for Windows’ embedded products are designed to address users’ concerns about security of deployed smart devices. The company adds that Sygate’s security agent gives Bsquare’s solutions the most of protection available to devices running Windows XP Embedded operating systems. This solution reportedly is the first single-agent product to incorporate intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, a “stateful” firewall, device integrity, and centralized management. Sygate's agent was designed to minimize its footprint on smart devices.

Likewise, Bsquare’s security solutions ensure that authorized endpoints are compliant with established security policy before allowing connection to the network.

Bsquare’s new white paper on security and Windows’ embedded devices is available at www.bsquare.com .
