Zilog Announces New ZGATE™ Embedded Security Solution

Stocks in this article: IXYS

Zilog ®, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS), today announced the New ZGATE Embedded Security, which combines multiple technologies for safer, faster and better deployment of embedded communications applications. ZGATE Embedded Security incorporates Zilog’s eZ80F91 MCU and full-featured TCP/IP stack with a unique world-class embedded firewall to produce an entirely new technology that offers an additional layer of embedded protection for smarter, safer devices and products.

The eZ80F91 MCU, a member of Zilog’s eZ80Acclaim family of MCUs, is already well-suited to today’s wired and wireless applications requiring internet connectivity. The addition of the ZGATE security layer offers significantly deeper protection against cyber threats and attacks. With many more applications, devices, products and processes demanding increased security, Zilog’s eZ80F91 MCU, embedded with ZGATE technology, reduces the incidence of security breaches in many types of products in defense, telecommunications, utilities, transportation, medical and industrial applications.

ZGATE is packed with features, including Ethernet, IP/UDP/TCP/ICMP filtering, extremely low latency, and APIs for event logging. ZGATE’s easily configurable filtering rules offer static/rules-based filtering, which blocks packets based on configurable rules, and dynamic filtering/stateful packet inspection (SPI), which blocks packets based on the state of a connection. Tests of these packet-blocking filters show dramatically improved network throughput under load.

As more modern devices are exposed to denial of service attacks and emerging threats that affect the functionality of today’s smarter connected devices, ZGATE provides an embedded solution that fits designers’ needs.

“Zilog is excited to offer this innovative MCU-based solution to keep in step with the world’s need for stronger security solutions across many embedded applications,” said Steve Darrough, Zilog’s VP of Marketing. “ZGATE is the first and only embedded hardware communication solution that can protect connected devices from the growing number of internet-based threats.”

Zilog’s ZGATE products are now available for customers that place orders through Zilog’s distribution or representatives. For more information, visit www.zilog.com.
