Microsemi acquires Arxan Defense Systems

Microsemi has acquired privately held Arxan Defense Systems.

Arxan Defense Systems is a provider of anti-tamper solutions, providing full-service support to defense clients in securing systems against tampering, piracy and reverse engineering. Arxan's software and firmware platform, EnforcIT, is designed for defense customers building major weapons systems that require protection of critical technologies against nation-state threats.

"The combination of Microsemi and Arxan Defense Systems creates a broad and complementary product portfolio for the Defense market," said James J. Peterson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Microsemi. "Arxan's software and firmware solutions fulfill an important role in protecting DoD-critical technologies while they serve to enable additional opportunities in non-U.S. military markets."

"This partnership between Microsemi and Arxan Defense Systems further leverages Arxan's EnforcIT enablement platform into additional security layers and devices to complement our software and firmware protection capabilities," said Rich Earley, Chief Executive Officer of Arxan Defense Systems. "We are proud to join forces with such a strong and growing supplier of Defense products, systems, and capabilities."
