Protect your data at rest

Space is precious. Guard the data on your device without the need of a specialized trusted chip

  • Encrypt and store sensitive information, even in a non-secure location
  • Defend against bus sniffing and data injections by securing the communication between modem and microcontroller
  • Save space and reduce BoM cost, simplifying the design of your device

    Discover how to access u‑blox Thingstream and leverage IoT Security-as-a-Service with this getting started guide.

    Available features

    Local Data Protection

    Local data at rest is encrypted/decrypted and authenticated, allowing it to be securely stored even in a non-secure location.

    Local C2C Security

    Protects the communication between the microcontroller and the u‑blox module, safeguaring it from external attacks such as bus sniffing and data injection.

    Space is precious. LPWA devices are not just constrained by memory space, but also in the number and size of their components, which ultimately define design cost. When we talk about data protection, a crucial consideration is to guard the integrity of the data stored locally on the device, otherwise known as the data at rest.

    Design security offers a set of features that allow storage of sensitive information securely, even in a non-secure location such as the standard device memory with the significant advantage to not use dedicate hardware to store secrets, certificates, keys.

    Additionally, chip-to-chip security protects the communication between the microcontroller and the u‑blox module, and safeguards from external attacks such as bus sniffing and data injection. 

    In this way, design security simplifies the design of your device, protects your data at rest, and reduces cost.


    We believe that you should focus on your business without wasting time checking your bills.  That is why we adopt a very simple pay-as-you-go approach: pay only for the services you need, for as long as you use them, without requiring long-term contracts, complex licensing or set-up fees.
