Chain of Trust Security Architecture
Laird Connectivity’s Chain of Trust Architecture (CoT) is focused on the securing of medical devices, starting with the Laird Connectivity Secure Communications Module. The CoT is designed with multiple layers of verification, encryption, and signing to ensure the device operates with trusted software loaded. The CoT Secure Module isolates the host application from intrusion attempts. The Chain of Trust extends to our customers by implementing and supporting a secure provisioning and update process that best meets their needs. This is in combination with Laird Connectivity’s dedication to identifying and fixing vulnerabilities proactively, providing a comprehensive, multi-level approach that ensures the security of our customer’s medical device.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“Laird has been a trusted partner for us for several years. Laird has provided services from developing custom antennas and modules to full EMI certification testing. Laird shines as a partner when it comes to support. When issues do arise, Laird partners with our business and service organizations to determine the source and best resolution. This has included site visits to our end customers to troubleshoot problems in real time. Laird is a business and technology partner we can count on!"
Director, Wireless Competency Center
“Longevity in the market for medical devices is critical. Laird Connectivity gets it! We sourced their SSD30 for many years. When components on this design were going EOL, Laird worked with us on a last time buy to source this product as long as possible. They then provided us a migration path to the newer platform that was form, fit, and function compatible with the previous design. Laird is also committed to timely software updates and correcting security vulnerabilities. Laird has been a great business and technology partner to work with!"
Vice President Manufacturing Operations
“We have worked with Laird’s Design Services, EMI Test & Certification, and Embedded Module teams from prototype to full production of new products. Their module integration services and wireless compliance testing expertise are second to none. And they are consistent with periodic software updates that add new features and plug security vulnerabilities. I look forward to our continued relationship with Laird Connectivity."
