LynuxWorks Showcases Enterprise Ready Secure Virtualization Platform Running on Multiple Devices at RSA Conference 2011

Demonstration Systems Include a Standard Laptop, a 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Reference Platform and a Network Malware Security System

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - RSA Conference 2011 -- As a new participant to the RSA Conference, LynuxWorks, Inc., will demonstrate its LynxSecure high-performance, secure virtualization platform. The LynxWorks platform allows multiple guest operating systems (OSes) and applications to run safely and independently on a single device. Originally built for security-critical military, medical and avionics embedded applications; this market leading technology has now been extended to support the Enterprise.

The demonstration systems in the LynuxWorks booth (#240) include a standard laptop with secure Internet access, a reference platform running the latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor and the ValidEdge Network Malware Security (NMS) system running LynxSecure (booth #241).

According to Robert Day, VP of Marketing at LynuxWorks, "At the RSA Conference we are showing that it is now possible to run multiple copies of the Windows OS, each held in their own secure enclave, running at near native-speed on a LynxSecure-based endpoint. It is now possible to secure corporate sensitive applications and data on a machine browsing the open Internet without compromising the performance or functionality of the system."

Robert Day further explained that the same LynxSecure technology can be used to secure the next generation of devices and appliances based on Intel's latest 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processors, allowing developers to build security into their new systems at the lowest level, and then use the hypervisor functionality built into LynxSecure to run legacy OSes and applications on this secure platform.

Also being announced at the RSA Conference is the ValidEdge NMS system that uses the LynxSecure platform and helps augment network protection offered by traditional security appliances, either off-line or in-line modes. This is particularly important for Enterprise organizations that want to protect critical assets from new and custom malware-based attacks, which go undetected by firewalls or endpoint security products.

About LynxSecure
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 4.0 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 systemsLynxSecure offers two virtualization schemes, para-virtualized guest OSes such as Linux and LynxOS-SE offering maximum performance, and fully virtualized guest OSes such as Windows, Solaris and Chromium OS requiring no changes to the guest OS. Another key feature that LynxSecure offers is the ability to run guest OSes that have Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) capabilities. The new quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor makes this feature a reality by allowing one of the guest OSes to run across multiple cores, offering performance never seen before in a virtualized embedded system.
