Secure64 began by taking a radical approach to security – starting with a secure microprocessor and a micro operating system that was designed to leverage the full potential of the chip. This microprocessor, first developed by Secure64 co-founder Bill Worley, while he worked at Hewlett-Packard, came to the market as the Intel Itanium chip.
Secure64 designed its operating system, SourceT, to eliminate all paths for malware injection and execution, and incorporated built-in protections against high volume denial of service attacks. The resulting platform has been evaluated by third parties and found to be “immune to all currently known malware and rootkits,” and to withstand attacks that cause conventional architectures to fail.
Secure64 then developed and launched a full suite of DNS products running on this hardware and operating system architecture, each product inheriting the unique security properties that this platform provides.
