Pantherun Technologies from the house of Intel Startup Program is making waves lately. It is a groundbreaking solution in edge device security. It leverages Intel’s field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to achieve real-time AES encryption on resource-limited edge devices. It simultaneously ensures robust data security as well as reduces vulnerability to breaches.


Data security solutions usually demanded substantial resources and this led to higher costs, increased transmission latency and performance issues as well. Pantherun is AI-powered and chip-based communication solution. It circumvents the challenges with the help of strong end-to-end encryption in real-time without compromising quality.

Pantherun offers flexible deployment by using utilizing Intel FPGAs such as Cyclone V and Arria 10. It allows for updates and reprogramming on a regular basis. The innovative approach ensures seamless functionality with existing encryption methods like SSL and IPSec. It simultaneously also makes the solution adaptable and future-proof.

Pantherun has been successfully applied to a critical project with Indian Railways involving installing CCTV cameras in passenger train coaches. It reduced transmission latency by 40% and facilitated real-time video feed monitoring from a central location.

Pantherun co-founder Srinivas Shekar said the approach is innovative ensuring high-performance encryption for devices that previously couldn’t support such security. it is a significant stride in preventing data breaches.

Pantherun Technologies was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in Bangalore. It lately raised Pre-series A funding from key investors such as Capital2B fund, SIDBI Venture Capital Limited, Piper Serica Angel Fund, growX ventures, 8X Ventures and PointOne Capital. The new capital will support its mission to further enhance cybersecurity across various industries. Its solution reduces resource requirements for edge devices. It eliminates the need to exchange encryption keys. It enables easy implementation of AES encryption on resource-constrained devices.
