- Market trends: growing need for protecting connected devices & moving from software-only to hardware-based security
- Intrinsic ID SRAM PUF technology provides a strong, scalable and cost-effective foundation of trust
- Intrinsic ID solutions skyrocket in adoption, driving exponential growth of secure hardware technology
SUNNYVALE, Calif., February 15, 2023 – Intrinsic ID, the world’s leading provider of Physical Unclonable Function (PUF) technology for security and authentication applications in embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it is now protecting 500,000,000 devices worldwide with cutting-edge security technology.
This milestone achievement has been fueled by the vital need for security that our connected world is experiencing. With the rapidly growing number of devices that make up the IoT, it is no longer possible to connect these devices without having proper security in place. On top of the increasing need for protecting IoT devices comes an industry-wide shift from software-only to hardware-based security solutions, especially when it comes to protecting cryptographic keys.
The combination of these two trends has resulted in an exponential adoption rate of Intrinsic ID SRAM PUF technology. SRAM PUF facilitates the creation of a root of trust in hardware without the need to store keys in an easy and flexible manner at low cost. These benefits of Intrinsic ID technology have given the company a strong position in the security markets for government and defense, industrial IoT, and data centers, while aiding expansion into new, high-growth vertical markets including automotive, wearables, healthcare, AI, and smart cities and homes.
Recent key achievements of Intrinsic ID include:
- Exponential adoption of Intrinsic ID PUF technology. The number of new devices deployed with Intrinsic ID technology in 2022 was almost double compared to the number of devices in 2021.
- Customer retention. A rapidly growing number of license deals is coming from recurring customers, which shows strong customer retention.
- Strong 2022 financial performance. In 2022 revenue grew to a new record high, more than doubling 2021 revenue and making Intrinsic ID highly profitable in 2022.
