INTEGRITY Global Security's New Certified Secure Operating System Could Have Prevented Recent Pentagon Cyber Attacks and Obama Cell Phone Hack

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - David Chandler, CEO of INTEGRITY Global Security, issued this statement today in response to recent news reports that the Pentagon suffered an unprecedented cyber attack and that President-elect Obama's cell phone records had been hacked:

"INTEGRITY Global Security's certified-secure operating system could have prevented both of these attacks. In the case of the Pentagon, our system can restrict USB and other external device access. We can also isolate sensitive data and IT systems and protect them from worms, viruses and other threats. In fact, the Department of Defense is already deploying INTEGRITY to counter threats just like these.

"INTEGRITY's Secure Separation Platform can also be used to ensure that critical data -- like the President-elect's cell phone records -- can be viewed only by authorized individuals and cannot be copied, forwarded, or hacked.

"The National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) which is operated by the National Security Agency (NSA) has certified that the INTEGRITY operating system is appropriate for systems exposed to the types of sophisticated and hostile attacks that hit the Pentagon. We can also prevent insider penetrations like the one the President-elect suffered. With INTEGRITY, data and systems are certified secure."

Last week, INTEGRITY Global Security announced that its INTEGRITY-178B operating system was certified to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 6+, High Robustness. "INTEGRITY is the first and only operating system to be awarded such a high-level security certification," added Chandler.

INTEGRITY's certified-secure operating system is now available to both government and commercial entities that require their critical data and systems be absolutely secure. For more information:
