April 2017 – Trade show success at embedded world – high demand for storage solutions with security functions

Number of visitors increased by 20% compared to 2016.


Bronschhofen, Switzerland – A review of the countless discussions held on the Swissbit booth at embedded world 2017 in Nuremberg confirmed, that other than Swissbit’s high-quality storage solutions for demanding industrial and medical applications, many trade show visitors this year showed particular interest in the latest secure memory cards from Swissbit. The opportunity for counterfeit-proof and access-protected data storage as well as the integrated secure element feature for cryptography applications were the subject of many discussions about possible usage scenarios for these special SD and microSD cards. Swissbit’s idea to protect M2M communication in the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) with the help of security chips within the flash storage medium attracted even more attention through a completely different application: Swissbit’s secure SD cards are already in use in thousands of bodycams – proof that applications can very easily be adapted to security requirements in this way.


The use of the data-protection-cards from Swissbit is usually even the most technically and economically ideal solution to integrate data-protection functionality into low-cost standard devices.The use of such cards turns a standard video camera into a secure camera. The commercial advantages speak for themselves: the device itself does not need to be modified to enable secure recordings as the memory card ensures that data cannot be read without authorization.
