We expect our confidential data to be protected and secure at all times, yet readily accessible anytime, anywhere.

 

In this blog we will take a different approach to data security and focus on our expertise, showing how to protect data as it travels down the visual processing pipeline through a secure GPU and memory subsystem inside an SoC. Read more
