Data security firm HCC Embedded on Thursday acquired the networking business unit of InterNiche Technologies, a U.S. supplier of embedded networking protocol software. With this acquisition HCC is now better positioned to offer IoT device developers a single source of secure networking and storage solutions.
HCC Embedded’s software solutions ensure that any data stored or communicated by an embedded IoT application is secure, safe, and reliable. With 15+ years deep understanding of flash, HCC secures data for customers in IoT, medical, transport, industrial, and aerospace markets.
“Over its 26-year history, the U.S.–based InterNiche team has provided high-quality networking protocol and application software to a broad range of customers. The addition of that team’s portfolio and reputation to HCC’s strong position in Europe creates an impressive solution for developers worldwide and should greatly improve the quality of IoT devices coming to market,” said Dave Hughes, CEO of HCC Embedded.
“Our aim is to provide the most reliable, most secure, and safest data storage and communications solutions for the IoT, backed by strong, global technical support,” he added.
HCC provides data storage and communications software solutions that keep IoT data secure, encrypted, reliable, and fast. InterNiche is well known for its mature code and high-quality Internet protocol software and networking expertise, specifically targeting connected device imple-mentations.
InterNiche’s NicheStack products and extensive IoT protocols complement HCC’s MISRA-compliant networking and fail-safe storage portfolio. In the short term, all products previously available from both companies will be available for licensing as before. HCC has strengthened its technical and sales presence in the U.S. by bringing former InterNiche engineers and sales professionals together in one office in San Jose with HCC Embedded America and plans to announce an integrated product roadmap in the near future.
