Axiado Joins OpenPOWER Foundation

Published on Sunday 16 October 2022


Today, we are pleased to announce that Axiado Corporation, an AI-enhanced hardware security company based in San Jose, CA, has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation as a Silver member.

The OpenPOWER Foundation is committed to an open, community-driven technology development process, which is critical to the continued growth of open collaboration around the POWER architecture.

OpenPOWER Foundation is pleased to welcome Axiado to the foundation and our community, and look forward to our collaboration in the open trusted compute solution space”,
said James Kulina, Executive Director, OpenPOWER Foundation.
Axiado’s datacenter-ready secure control module (DC-SCM) Smart SCM solution was inspired by OpenPOWER’s very own LibreBMC project. The rapid adoption and iteration from a fully open community-driven solution, is exactly what the foundation champions.

Axiado develops trusted control/compute security processors and management platforms.
Axiado’s solution provides protection to critical infrastructures and effectively fends off remote network- and local physical-based attacks.
It is ideally suited to providing protection for datacenters and mobile networks.

This is an important milestone for Axiado as it highlights our commitment to the Foundation and greater technical collaboration”, said Gopi Sirineni, Axiado’s President & CEO. “Axiado Smart SCM fills several gaps in the market by eliminating fundamental security problems, like ransomware, via its ground-up built and integrated solution that minimizes the attack surface in distributed, multi-tenant cloud infrastructures.”

Josel Lorenzo, Axiado’s VP of Products continues, “Open ecosystem design has empowered start-ups such as Axiado to innovate with next generation capabilities previously not possible. Our Smart SCM, powered by TCU and based on the DC-SCM specification, illustrates what’s possible with open collaboration and how it can enhance server security.

The OpenPOWER Foundation looks forward to collaborating with Axiado in developing new and exciting security processors for POWER-based platforms through open standards and community driven collaboration.
