Regulatory News: Inside Secure (Paris:INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announced it entered into an agreement with Hangzhou NationalChip Science and Technology Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of SoCs (system-on-chip), to use Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution to build robust security into its products during the chip manufacturing process.
