Global shipments of cybersecurity microcontrollers to rise 91% by 2017: IHS

9th October 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, October 9, 2013: Driven by demand for increased security in computers, authentication and the machine-to-machine (M2M) market, global shipments of cybersecurity microcontrollers (MCUs) are set to nearly double by 2017.

Worldwide shipments of cybersecurity MCUs—also known as embedded secure MCUs—will rise to 529 million units in 2017, according to a new report entitled “Embedded Digital Security—World—2013” from the Smart Cards and Digital Security group at IHS Inc. This represents 92 percent growth from 276 million in 2013.

Cybersecurity MCUs protect data in devices and communications and ensure that devices are operating in a trusted or expected manner. Features of cybersecurity MCUs include cryptography acceleration, secure-key storage and management and secure boot of computing systems. These MCUs are used in a wide variety of products and electronic devices, from PCs and servers, to electronic peripheral devices and medical consumables, to a broad range of systems that engage in M2M communications.

Sam Lucero, Senior principal analyst covering M2M & the Internet of Things for IHS, said, “Cybersecurity MCUs are playing a key role in defending a world that is increasingly at risk from hackers, cyberattacks, and counterfeit products. Because they are the principal hardware element enabling security in a diverse range of applications, cybersecurity MCUs will see widespread usage and fast growth in the coming years.”

There are three applications for cybersecurity MCUs: trusted platform modules (TPM), authentication and M2M.
