Trustonic has announced that, in the four-year period since the company launched, its Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) hardware security technology has now been embedded into more than one billion devices globally. This includes smartphones from most of the leading Android device makers worldwide, as well as wearables and other industrial and consumer internet of things (IoT) devices. This news reaffirms that the Trustonic TEE is the most widely-deployed TEE technology globally.

Commenting on the milestone, Ben Cade, Founder and CEO of Trustonic, said: “In just four years, Trustonic has made the security benefits of the TEE available to the global mass market. Reaching this one billion TEE landmark is significant, not just for Trustonic, but for device manufacturers, providers of digital services and consumers everywhere. TEE technology, which offers the highest levels of on-device protection for digital applications and assets, without compromising performance or convenience for the end user, has now reached critical scale. We only anticipate demand for TEEs to continue growing, particularly following Google’s mandate for hardware-based protection for Android M onwards, to counter the continued rise in malware and hacking.”
