Menta and Tiempo Secure Announce a Strategic Partnership in Response to the Escalation of Global Cyberattacks

Montbonnot & Valbonne, France – July 2nd, 2024 | Menta, a recognized leader in embedded FPGA IPs, and Tiempo Secure, a leading provider of high-end secure IP semiconductor solutions, proudly announce a unique innovation partnership, aimed at providing the highest level of security possible against cyberattacks, with a cutting-edge IP solution, combining a Secure Enclave and an eFPGA.  

There were more than 112 million cyberattacks on connected devices worldwide in 2022, a number that multiplied by 4 in only 4 years[1].  In the first quarter of 2023 alone, 6,4 million data leaks were recorded. The United States and the European Union developed a cybersecurity certification framework, introducing new legislation under the Cyber Trust Mark (2023) and the Cyber Resilience Act (2024), to improve cybersecurity and cyber resilience through common standards for products with digital elements. This stipulates that manufacturers of connected devices must continue to assure and increase the cybersecurity levels of their products for the duration of their lifetime.  Tiempo Secure and Menta are combining their expertise to provide the highest possible level of security to counter present and future cyberattacks.

Tiempo Secure is a French Deeptech company specializing in the design of Secure Enclaves, an essential embedded semiconductor electronic hardware component. These protect sensitive user data as the secure enclave uses advanced cryptographic algorithms and isolation from the main processor to provide the highest levels of security.

Menta is a world-leading French company in the field of embedded FPGA (eFPGA), a security solution that enables reconfiguring and increasing the power of integrated circuits in their application field.

Leveraging their combined expertise in embedded FPGA and secure hardware cryptography, Menta and Tiempo Secure are developing something extraordinarily new for the market from a security, flexibility, and certification perspective:

  • Flexibility: its cryptographic algorithms can carry out updates to counter cyberattacks, even those linked to quantum computing.
  • Security & Certification: based on cryptographic libraries certified to Common Criteria EAL5+ level.

The scope of applications covered by the solution includes Aerospace, Industrial, and Mobility.

We are very enthusiastic about the new augmented solution that our collaboration with Menta will enable us to bring to the market. The innovative approach brings unique added value to chipset vendors. They can manage the security of their platform during the entire product life cycle, including in the field, while taking account of their end customers’ requirements”, commented Mikaël Dubreucq – Tiempo Secure’s VP Global Sales & Marketing.

We are very excited about today’s announcement because of the innovation opportunities that this partnership enables and because it brings together two key IP experts with complementary product offerings. Our unique eFPGA-Secure Enclave solution is the best solution for our customers to de-risk cryptography for now and the future”, added Yoan Dupret – Menta’s Managing Director & CTO.
