03 Nov 2020, Horw, Switzerland: Toradex AG (“Toradex”), an innovative leader in System on Modules, today announced that it will offer BlackBerry® QNX® software and services to its broad embedded customer base across North America, EMEA and APAC. Toradex joins the BlackBerry® QNX® Channel Partner Program, a worldwide network of value-added integrators, distributors and reseller experts trained on QNX technologies.

Under the agreement, Toradex will support BlackBerry QNX® Neutrino® RTOS on its Colibri iMX8X and Apalis iMX8X System on Modules (SOMs). This partnership will enable Toradex’s customers to build upon BlackBerry QNX’s embedded software foundation to develop secure and safety-critical solutions for the domestic and international markets.

“We partnered with BlackBerry QNX to give our customers simple access to a highly safe and secure OS, that is ideal for critical applications. QNX is a great match for our latest i.MX 8 based System on Modules with many features focusing on safety and security. The collaboration allows customers to get started with the QNX operating system in just a few minutes,” said Daniel Lang, CMO, Toradex.

“We are very pleased to welcome Toradex to the BlackBerry QNX Channel Partner Program,” said Dhiraj Handa, VP, Channel, Partners and APAC, BlackBerry Technology Solutions. “We look forward to helping their customers further accelerate the design, development, integration and testing of safety-critical embedded systems and devices.”

Toradex System on Modules (SoMs) are designed for demanding applications in verticals such as healthcare, industrial automation and transportation. The Apalis iMX8 features the NXP® i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor, and the Colibri iMX8X and the Apalis iMX8X are based on the NXP i.MX 8X applications processor. The i.MX 8 and i.MX 8X utilize the 28nm advanced FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates. All the modules come with Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory on caches and the Apalis iMX8X also provides ECC RAM. ECC memory improves the reliability and simplifies functional safety certifications.

Join experts from BlackBerry and Toradex on Nov 5th for a jointly-led webinar on best practices for UX Design and how to build a safe and secure medical device, from the operating system on up.

Credence Security Joins with ColorTokens to Bring a Modern Security Approach to Enterprises in Middle East, Africa & India

Credence Security, the Middle East region’s premier value-added distributor for cybersecurity, forensics, governance, risk, and compliance solutions, today announced its partnership with ColorTokens, a global leader in unified, cloud-based security solutions. Under the agreement, Credence Security will offer ColorTokens’ Xshield and Xprotect products to customers across the Middle East, Africa and India (MEAI) region.

“Traditional security approaches assume that everything inside of an enterprise network can be trusted,” said Lee Ealey-Newman, VP Channels for EMEA and APAC at ColorTokens. “Yet the digital transformation we see in today’s modern workplace means enterprises are adopting multi-cloud strategies, with an increased focus on dynamic microservices. Organisations need stronger security postures if they are to prevail against an increasingly malevolent threat landscape.”

As targeted attacks and insider threats become more common across the region, protecting the corporate perimeter is no longer sufficient. ColorTokens has adopted a Zero Trust approach designed to protect enterprise environments of all scale from careless, compromised, or even criminal users. Such an approach drastically reduces the risk of unauthorised access to critical applications and data.

“We see a significant opportunity in this partnership to leverage Credence’s established ecosystem, long-time expertise and local presence,” continued Ealey-Newman. “Credence’s value-added solution approach will help ColorTokens deliver optimal business benefits to a wider range of partners and end customers across the PAN-EMEA region.”

ColorTokens’ award-winning Xshield provides full visibility and security of workloads from the data centre to the cloud. It allows security teams to improve their security posture with granular drill downs and software-defined micro-segmentation that is unchained from the network. Xprotect provides advanced, proactive endpoint security, insulating devices from breaches, malware, ransomware and zero-day attacks with an easy to deploy, cloud-based approach that only grants permissions to company-sanctioned applications.

Xshield and Xprotect are part of ColorTokens’ Xtended ZeroTrust™ Platform. Together they deliver real-time visualisation and segmentation of an entire technology stack. Both seamlessly integrate with legacy security tools, allowing organizations to have tighter control over their environments and respond more effectively to threats.

The Xtended ZeroTrust Platform was built from the ground to deliver Zero Trust micro-segmentation and endpoint protection capabilities to enterprises of all scale — representing unparalleled protection and a new generation of security for dynamic, hybrid environments. The platform’s cloud-based architecture allows it to single-handedly secure cloud workloads, containers, dynamic applications, endpoints, servers, and users from internal and external threats.

With real-time visualisation and segmentation of the entire IT infrastructure at their fingertips, security teams can block advanced malware, contain and respond to APTs (advanced persistent threats) and zero-day attacks. ColorTokens’ solution also allows comprehensive risk management, including assessments for related potential costs from incursions. This allows stakeholders to quantify risks and prioritize how they will be addressed.

“Today’s digital enterprises demand a modern approach to the management of security posture,” said Garreth Scott, Managing Director at Credence Security. “ColorTokens Platform goes far beyond perimeter security, delivering unprecedented visibility, micro-segmentation, and a Zero Trust architecture for organizations of all sizes. Together, we are empowering customers across the region with the tools they need to protect their users and critical data.”
