Security System-on-a-Chip (SoC) - Biometrics, Virtual Currency and Advertising

To deliver cross-platform, standards-based security solution, wireless semiconductor supplier Broadcom (News - Alert) Corp. has expanded its security system-on-a-chip (SoC) family with the addition of two new integrated chips, BCM5882 and BCM5883. The supplier said that the new SoCs provide PC OEMs with a security solution that is both scalable and cost-effective. In fact, the new SoCs come with integrated near field communication (NFC) technology, a secure processor and biometric capabilities all on a single chip. As a result, using a multi-factor, multi-choice authentication and data protection process, the new SoCs isolate user authentication from the host computing system, said the maker. Besides allowing the IT managers to leverage the cost-effective security platform across a variety of computer product families, the new SoCs also permits netbooks and tablets to exploit NFC technology for payments, virtual currency transactions, advertising and other such business deals. According to Broadcom, with the rise in enterprise network security breaches and increasing concerns related to social media sites and data stored in the cloud, security experts, suppliers and service providers alike see the need to improve network security.
