ARM has a hankering for Singularity 1.0

CRN reporting:ARM is turning its focus to the connectivity standards driving the Internet of Things, announcing Monday that it has acquired Mistbase and NextG-Com.Both companies specialize in the technology behind narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), a low-power, wide-area connectivity standard for machine-to-machine applications, such as monitoring remote sensors."Combining ARM NB-IoT IP with secure cloud connectivity will allow ARM’s chip partners to create industry-leading products that tie into an end-to-end security system," ARM wireless business general manager Paul Williamson said in a statement. "In enabling NB-IoT compatibility, we will save the industry years of development effort and improve access for developers by reducing the time it takes to get products approved by standards bodies and network operators."
Without a doubt full endpoint security has arrived. But we still need hardware enforcement of forgery and double spending rules at the endpoints. 
And Intel:

Intel Security continued to build on its integrated security strategy vision at RSA 2017, rolling out multiple new solutions and initiatives to bring together fragmented security solutions. The company announced the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) 10 and McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform (vNSP), which update the company's SIEM solution with a new user interface, threat intelligence, Foundstone threat researchers and extended protection to AWS and OpenStack cloud deployments. Intel Security also announced 16 new partnerships in its McAfee Data Exchange Layer, new integrations to its OpenDXL initiative and the company's integration with the Cyber Threat Alliance Platform (CTAP).
I am not a fan of McAfee and Redneck Systems only trusts secure steel python,  and the python  vendor will tell us which security monitoring app works best.
