Icon Labs Floodgate Firewall Secures Zilog’s New ZGATE MCU
Industry’s First Microcontroller with Embedded Security
West Des Moines, IA, January 3, 2013 – Icon Labs (www.iconlabs.com) a leading provider of embedded networking and security technologies, today announced that its Floodgate™ Embedded Firewall provides network security for Zilog® Corporation’s newly announced ZGATE family of protected microcontrollers. Zilog, a pioneer supplier of application-specific, embedded microcontroller (MCU) system-on-chip (SoC) solutions is using Floodgate to add a critical layer of security for network devices built with their new ZGATE architecture.
Floodgate provides security to Zilog’s eZ80Acclaim™ based products used in today’s wired and wireless Internet connected devices and adds deeper protection from dangerous network attacks. As more embedded applications, devices and products connect to the Internet, there is an increased demand for the security that Zilog’s eZ80Acclaim, embedded with Icon Labs’ Floodgate technology, addresses. Their joint solution reduces the incidence of security breaches in devices used in defense, energy, medical, transportation and manufacturing.
“Icon Lab’s Floodgate provides the necessary protection to the growing number of devices connecting to the Internet,” said Alan Grau, President of Icon Labs. “We are excited about the availability of Zilog’s ZGATE with Floodgate blocking denial of service attacks, packet floods, port scans, and other Internet-based threats from accessing connected devices.”
