Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform™ Is First Commercial IoT Solution to Achieve Arm Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Certification

X-Ware IoT Platform Brings Industrial-Grade
Safety and Security to Arm’s Platform Security Architecture (PSA)

NÜRNBERG, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#ARMlt;/agt;–Express Logic, the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating
systems (RTOSes), today announced that its industrial-grade X-Ware
IoT Platform
has become an Arm PSA Certified product —
currently the only such commercial product to earn this distinction. PSA
Certified is an IoT security evaluation scheme created by Arm to support
customers in implementing the level of security needed for their
devices. Its objective is to help build trust in the Internet of Things
by making independent security testing the norm for IoT platforms. This
achievement was made possible thanks to Express Logic’s collaboration
with Brightsight,
the world’s leading security evaluation lab.

Safe, Secure, Seamless IoT Connectivity

The X-Ware IoT Platform is built on the powerful ThreadX®
RTOS, which has more than 6.2 billion deployments, and leverages the
small footprint and near wirespeed of Express Logic’s NetX Duo™
IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack for IoT connectivity. The X-Ware IoT Platform is
the safest IoT embedded development RTOS and middleware solution on the
market. In addition to the Arm PSA certification, it has attained the
highest levels of safety certifications including IEC 61508 SIL 4 (the
highest, most dependable level as determined by IEC), IEC 62304 Class C,
ISO 26262 ASIL D, EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1
Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex
R, 1998. For those devices and applications that must do more than just
connect to the IoT, the X-Ware IoT Platform offers the safety-certified
FileX® embedded FAT-32/exFAT file system, the GUIX™ GUI
development and embedded runtime framework, and the USBX™ embedded
host/device USB stack.

Furthermore, the X-Ware IoT Platform already boasts an industry-leading
suite of security products, including ThreadX modules and ARMv8-M
support, NetX Secure IPsec, TLS/DTLS, and EAL 4+ Common Criteria
certification. The common Express Logic practice of developing all
products in-house without any open-source, makes the X-Ware IoT platform
the safest and most secure IoT software solution for embedded
development on the market.

Brightsight is excited to work with Express Logic on this PSA
certification project,” said Dirk-Jan Out, CEO, Brightsight. “PSA
Certified will improve the security of IoT devices and build a higher
level of trust in the value chain. This trust is critical for the IoT to
succeed. As one of the leading partners of PSA Certified, we are proud
to be the security lab and advisory partner supporting Express Logic in
its commitment to secure its products.”

Arm’s PSA helps make security implementation easier and more affordable
for developers to design into IoT devices. Arm’s PSA provides guidance,
documentation, and deliverables through every phase of development,
enabling developers to get their products to market faster and more

“The IoT presents ever-increasing opportunities and challenges,
especially when it comes to secure connectivity,” said William E. Lamie,
President, Express Logic. “The X-Ware IoT Platform provides Arm PSA
embedded developers a rock-solid commercial connectivity solution to
meet those safety and security requirements without compromise.”
