eSOL and Karamba Security Combine Strengths to Protect Mission-Critical Connected Assets

eMCOS® microkernel RTOS with powerful XGuard protection and threat analytics boosts cyber-protection for automotive and Industrial IoT applications.

Hod Hasharon, Paris and Tokyo, February 26th, 2021 - eSOL, creator of the eMCOS® multikernel (distributed microkernel) RTOS, and Karamba Security, a world-leading provider of embedded cybersecurity, have combined eSOL's eMCOS and Karamba's XGuard solutions to offer advanced cyber-protection for connected cars and smart-factory equipment.

"Karamba Security is excited to enhance its partnership with eSOL," said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security's CEO and Co-Founder. "Extending XGuard support to protect eMCOS and eMCOS Hypervisor will enable customers to benefit not only from the extremely advanced OS architecture, but also from seamless protection of customer applications."

"Integrating the cyber-protection features of eMCOS and Karamba's XGuard platform delivers unprecedented assurance for mission-critical and safety-critical connected assets," said Bob N. Ueyama, Executive Vice President at eSOL. "In addition to strengthening attack resistance, the resulting solution secures applications proactively through advanced monitoring and analysis."

As the only commercially available multikernel RTOS, eMCOS is uniquely conceived to fulfil emerging automotive and industrial use cases that require high throughput multicore computing with hard real-time performance while ensuring safety and security. eMCOS not only provides custom flexibility and scalability, but also simplifies developers' tasks by being optimized for software-defined architectures that will be used for future edge computing in embedded systems such as autonomous vehicles and real-time IoT applications like factory automation or industrial robots. The eMCOS real-time hypervisor provides virtualization to enable safe applications with mixed criticality.

When running seamlessly on eMCOS, Karamba's XGuard enables applications to protect themselves against cyber-attacks. XGuard provides patented, automatic policy generation that identifies legitimate binaries, as well as anti-tampering and event reporting of attacks that assists root-cause analysis. Moreover, the XGuard embedded security agent connects to Karamba's XGuard Monitor that provides continuous attack detection and response. Leveraging hybrid local and cloud-level analytics, XGuard product suite features powerful forensic tools to identify attackers' behavior and generate actionable intelligence.

For more information and to see eMCOS and XGuard in action, visitors to this year's embedded world DIGITAL trade fair (March 1-5, 2021), can engage with eSOL and Karamba Security throughout the event.
