Arm PSA Certified

We’ve all heard of the Internet of Things – intelligent hardware and software embedded into everyday objects, bringing digital capabilities to… well, everything. From children’s toys to smart cities, almost anything can be made to use, store, send and receive data.

To help make the IoT a safe and secure place for data to be, and to ensure we can trust that data, PSA Certified offers a framework for securing connected devices. From analysis through to security assessment and certification, the framework provides resources to help standardise requirements and expectations. It helps to ensure that security is seen as a base requirement, not an optional extra - and not as a barrier to product development.


A website was required to educate and inform around the need for and availability of security certification in this space. The site also needed to encourage participation from hardware and software developers by showcasing products that achieved PSA Certified Level 1-3.  And it needed to make it easy for manufacturers to understand and choose certified products, to help increase security across the IoT market.


With a relatively short timeframe ahead of the project’s launch at Embedded World 2019, Arm engaged Freshleaf to design and build a website that could fulfil the above requirements, as well as being attractive and easy to use, to establish credibility for the PSA Certified scheme.


The site launched on time and was well received by Arm's partners who commented on how they loved the look of it, and how good it was, especially given the very short development time. A second iteration of the site followed in 2020, with new content and new user journeys reflecting the changing audience and communication needs as the PSA Certified scheme gathered momentum. And Freshleaf continues to work closely with Arm, collaborating on further site development.

What they say

" is the second website Freshleaf Media have done for Arm. Despite a very short development time, Freshleaf made the development process smooth from start to delivery”
