Express Logic and Cypherbridge Systems Team to Deliver Secure Cloud Device Kit™

Express Logic, Inc., the worldwide leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), and Cypherbridge Systems, provider of connected device security, today announced the integration of the Cypherbridge embedded secure Cloud Device Kit for Express Logic platforms. This integrated solution enables embedded devices to connect securely to the cloud using JSON and XMPP. The solution is targeted at vertical markets including grid, commercial and residential energy management, M2M, telemetry, metering, SCADA, payment, and gaming terminals.

While customers using traditional embedded HTML/Javascript servers can add HTTPs security today using the Cypherbridge uSSL SDK, the rapid growth of embedded client applications calls for new solutions to bring cloud interoperability to the embedded platform. Using the Cloud Device Kit based on the industry proven uSSL SDK, developers can easily connect to the cloud with secure embedded JSONs and XMPPs on their wired or wireless network platform.

“Our partner Cypherbridge has landed significant design wins in major growth verticals including energy management and M2M systems,” said William E. Lamie, President of Express Logic. “Their Cloud Device Kit, integrated with Express Logic’s ThreadX® RTOS and NetX™ TCP/IP stack, helps to bring secure devices online faster, and accelerate deployment of our RTOS platform into new markets.”

Cypherbridge president, Steve Delaney is excited to introduce the secure Cloud Device Kit to the industry:

“We look forward as the Cloud Device Kit continues to build momentum in new vertical markets. This adds to our portfolio of secure solutions on Express Logic platforms, and we are proud to be an Express Logic Ecosystem Partner advancing the depth and breadth of offerings on this industry leading platform, which has seen more than 1.25 billion deployments to-date.”

“The recently announced National cybersecurity policy calls on industry to implement standards and security protection for infrastructure devices. Our Cloud Device Kit combines standards-based cloud connectivity, plus a secure channel. This meets the surge in demand for connected devices and big data, while at the same time protects the device against cyber intrusion.”

The Cloud Device Kit will launch at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, Feb 25 – March 1, where Cypherbridge will be exhibiting at booth 3001. Visit www.cypherbridge.com for more info. Express Logic will be exhibiting at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, Feb 26 – 28 in Hall 5, booth 320.

Shipping and availability

The Cloud Device Kit (CDK) includes embedded JSON or XMPP libraries, and the uSSL SDK. The CDK is available with an optional Windows or Linux hosted gateway reference application. Contact Cypherbridge Systems for pricing and availability at 1-760-814-1575 or [email protected].

About JSON and XMPP

Cloud 2.0 protocols including JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) and XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) are IETF RFC standards offering benefits such as system interoperability, scaling and fast time-to-market. At the device level, JSON and XMPP enable the device to transmit commands, status and record structured data across the network. Cloud servers support these standards to leverage a rich ecosystem of open system and commercial implementations. Applications can be rapidly deployed by the wide developer community. Cypherbridge can now deliver these benefits to the embedded platform, integrating JSON and XMPP connectivity with security features including mutual authentication and data encryption.
