Kameleon is a semiconductor startup developing advanced hardware cybersecurity platforms for computing systems. Kameleon created the first proactive Security Processing Unit (ProSPU), a state-of-the-art cyber protection chip for servers, data centers and cloud computing that enforces security throughout a system’s lifecycle.
Kameleon sets itself apart by building security directly into the system’s hardware next to the CPU in order to enforce security throughout the system’s lifecycle, starting at boot, through root-of-trust, and unique to the Kameleon system, at runtime.
Kameleon was founded in 2019 by a team of experts from industry giants including Intel, Qualcomm, and Microsoft, along with the Israeli Defence Forces’s elite intelligence unit, the Unit 8200. Our mission is to meet the cybersecurity threats facing data centers, managed computers, and cloud computing systems with innovative hardware-based solutions. Kameleon believes that true security is founded on openness and transparency. Our products meet and even exceed the Open Compute Project (OCP) Security standards, and all product designs make use of open source implementations where possible.
