In this overview of semiconductor security IP, learn how to prevent IP leakage and mitigate risk to protect your most valuable assets. Plus, learn how your team can get started.

What Is IP Security for Semiconductor Organizations?

Semiconductor IP security is critical for organizations. Final SoCs are made up of IPs with various origins, quality levels, and attack surfaces. Each factor comes with potential security risks. Semiconductor security IP involves you understanding each attack surface, tracking changes of IP over time with full traceability, and establishing a single source of truth for secure collaboration from origin to the delivery of the final design.

Why Is IP Security Important?

A single IP leak can cost an organization millions of dollars. As teams expand — in product complexity, headcount and, geography — so does the risk of IP leakage.

How Many Millions Are You Willing to Set Aside to Address IP Leakage?

Learn how inadequate IP management can lead to IP leakage and how it can be addressed with permissions management, transparent IP hierarchies, and geofencing. Protect your organization.

Protecting your IP often requires a combination of security measures across all the tools in the SoC development environment. Learn how to protect your organization from various risk factors in our resources below.

How Perforce Can Help

To successfully assure IP security, mitigate security risks, and stop security threats, you need the right solution. Methodics IPLM has IP security built in to its platform, making it part of the design team’s daily workflows. Read (and watch) below to see how Methodics IPLM by Perforce protects your most important assets.

Perforce Protects Your IP 

To assure IP security, you need Perforce. 9 of the 10 top semiconductor organizations trust Perforce for IP security. Designing semiconductors involves many IPs, geographies, and collaborators, all which present vulnerabilities. Methodics IPLM organizes, tracks, and traces IPs across teams. Helix Core data management securely stores IPs and can help you replicate around the world at lightning speed Each vulnerability requires a unique solution. This means you need a robust platform that can mitigate every potential risk and prevent accidental IP leakage.

See how Perforce can:

  • Provide a definitive single source of truth for all IP content.
  • Understand the attack surfaces for all IP.
  • Restrict IP availability by geography, regardless of access.
  • Know the who, what, where, why, and how of each IP version with full traceability.
