The integration of embedded security team of Verimatrix into Rambus, a renowned leader in hardware-based security, will help deliver a comprehensive portfolio regarding security solutions in the industry.

Seemingly, the acquisition will allow Rambus to deliver solutions that will address the security challenges laid down by its customers with the help of the most deployable and resilient embedded security in the market. The acquisition will be subject to customary closing and signing conditions.
