With CoreGuard, system designers have assurance that their SiFive-based host processor is protected at the instruction level. CoreGuard prevents illegal instructions from executing before any damage can be done. Its security rules define the difference between legal and illegal instructions, and can be customized
“Our revolutionary CoreGuard technology goes far beyond traditional solutions by hardwiring cybersecurity directly into the silicon of the host processor to guarantee security, safety, and privacy,” said Jothy Rosenberg, CEO and co-founder of Dover Microsystems, in a statement.
Dover was founded in 2009 as part of a DARPA-funded program on security and in 2015, Dover began incubation inside Draper before spinning out in 2017.
In February 2018 Dover announced it had raised $6 million in seed funding. Hyperplane Venture Capital led the round with participation from Draper, Qualcomm Ventures and the Hub Angels Investment Group.
At the time Dover said it would use the money for engineering and product development efforts and to support key hires in sales and marketing.
