Detect… understand… mitigate…
cybersecurity at hardware speed

Tessent enables an entirely new level of cybersecurity protection for any product

Our solutions can detect, understand and mitigate cyber threats at hardware speed. Because they are embedded in the underlying hardware of the SoC, they are extremely difficult to subvert, providing an “anchor” for traditional root-of-trust security mechanisms. By monitoring the underlying behavior of the chip, they add an extra element of defense in depth to the security landscape, and can offer protection against “day zero” attacks.

New white paper: Understanding the evolving landscape of SoC vulnerabilities and analog threats

SoC attacks call for analog and digital defences

This new white paper discusses the sources of vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks; where they are, what they can potentially achieve, as well as highlighting how attacks can happen and what infrastructure must be in place to monitor and tackle them.

A holistic cybersecurity infrastructure

Tessent Embedded Analytics continuously checks that your SoC is operating as expected. Our on-chip sentries can detect and block suspicious transactions at hardware speed. They are run-time configurable, allowing them to adapt to the evolving cyber threat landscape. Sentries can be integrated via a secure interconnect with other on-chip monitoring, analytics and recording elements. This improves cyber resilience by allowing designers to profile normal system behavior; analyze and understand existing and emerging cyber threats; improve anomaly detection; and capture a forensic record of unusual events.


Tessent’s on-chip monitors constantly gather targeted, fine-grained data to detect unusual behavior at hardware speed – working at the most fundamental level of system operation


Tessent gathers data from across the chip to profile normal operation of your system and analyze known and emerging cyber threats, using on-chip intelligence or analytics in the cloud


Tessent Sentries can protect the internal buses of any SoC, responding immediately by flagging or blocking suspicious transactions and isolating compromised execution units


Tessent’s cybersecurity architecture allows forensic recording of critical or anomalous events, increasingly important to maintain safety and determine liability when things go wrong
