Premier Farnell Announces Global Franchise with Embedded Security Solutions Developer, Zymbit

New franchise adds hardware security modules for Raspberry Pi used in critical Internet of Things applications

Chicago, November 28, 2018: Premier Farnell announces a new global distribution agreement with U.S.-based Zymbit, the developer of hardware security modules that ensure physical and digital security of IoT devices. This new franchise provides Newark element14 customers with access to Zymbit’s popular ZYMKEY 4i security module which delivers professional grade security to the Raspberry Pi family of single board computers.

The ZYMKEY 4i offers a unique plug-in security solution to developers looking to protect data, credentials and intellectual property contained in IoT products that are deployed in the wild, beyond the security of firewalls and physical infrastructure. Zymbit products are easy to integrate, making them suitable for security-responsible customers of all sizes. Current applications include the monitoring of oil-pipelines and industrial machinery, smart energy grids, digital forensics appliances, ECU flashing systems, physical access control points and signing of immutable sensor data.

Pete Wenzel, Global Head of Single Board Computers for Premier Farnell and Newark element14 explained: “As the leading distributor of the Raspberry Pi, we are seeing a growing amount of customers purchasing the product for professional applications. The Zymbit ZYMKEY 4i is an important addition to our product range, offering a unique plug-in security module for the Raspberry Pi and enabling customers to secure single board computers used within their professional applications from cyber and physical threats.”

Phil Strong, CEO of Zymbit stated, “We are delighted to partner with Premier Farnell in helping address the industry-wide call for higher levels of device security. Our customers are diverse, but they share a common need to secure their products which often contain millions of dollars of software IP, together with critical credentials that enable access to sensitive cloud services. Zymbit customers demand additional levels of data protection and physical security than are typically offered on single board computers. “

The Zymbit ZYMKEY 4i is available from Newark element14 in North America, Farnell element14 in Europe, and element14 in Asia Pacific.
