San Jose, CA, April 16, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- At InfoSecurity Europe (Earl's Court, London from April 19-21), LynuxWorks, Inc. will show the latest version of their leading secure virtualization product helping to protect standard endpoints against cyber attacks. In the ValidEdge booth (L-76) there will be a demonstration of the LynxSecure 5.0 separation kernel and hypervisor, running multiple Windows operating systems (OSes) securely in their own domains, on a standard laptop.
The LynxSecure product from LynuxWorks helps protect endpoints from any malicious attacks, especially when away from the protected corporate network by securely segregating sensitive corporate applications and data from unprotected Internet browsing. The same LynxSecure technology is also running in the booth as the secure platform for the ValidEdge MIS1200 Malware Analyzer, allowing malware under analysis to be contained in its own secure partition.
For endpoint protection, LynxSecure 5.0 offers military-grade security, near-native performance and flexible virtualization, allowing IT departments to protect corporate computers and sensitive information, without forcing users to compromise on their endpoint’s functionality.
“The latest version of LynxSecure builds new virtualization functionality on the proven security environment of its separation kernel architecture,” said Robert Day, VP Marketing, LynuxWorks, Inc. “This allows resource constrained endpoints like corporate laptops to securely share devices while protecting against cyber attacks by maintaining different OSes and applications in their own secure virtual machines.”
LynxSecure provides one of the most flexible secure virtualization solutions for use in Intel® architecture-based embedded and computer systems. Designed to maintain the highest levels of military security and built-from-the-ground-up to achieve it, LynxSecure 5.0 now offers an industry-leading combination of security with functionality, allowing developers and integrators to use the latest software and hardware technologies to build complex multi-OS based systems. LynxSecure 5.0 gives two types of device virtualization, either direct assignment of physical devices to individual guest OSes for maximum security, or secure device sharing across selected guest OSes for maximum functionality in resource constrained endpoints such as laptops. LynxSecure also offers two OS virtualization schemes: para-virtualized guest OSes such as Linux and LynxOS-SE OSes offering maximum performance; and fully virtualized guest OSes such as Windows, Solaris and Chromium OSes requiring no changes to the guest OS. Another key performance feature that LynxSecure offers is the ability to run both fully virtualized and para-virtualized guest OSes that have Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) capabilities across multiple cores.
LynuxWorks, a world leader in the embedded software market, is committed to providing open and reliable real-time operating systems (RTOS) and software tools to embedded developers. The company's LynxOS family of operating systems offers open standards with the highest level of safety and security features, enabling many mission-critical systems in defense, avionics and other industries.
