Vulnerabilities in general purpose operating systems continue to force companies to invest in costly security equipment and complex system management processes, and yet the cycle of vulnerability, exploit, attack and patch shows no signs of letting up.
This whitepaper explores the root causes of today’s security vulnerabilities, and describes the essential characteristics of a Genuinely Secure architecture that eliminates the vulnerabilities that fuel this vulnerability-exploit cycle, using the Secure64 SourceT micro OS as an example implementation.
Customers benefit from deploying Genuinely Secure systems by eliminating the need to:
- Harden operating systems
- Perform emergency vulnerability patching
- Deploy network security devices to protect mission-critical servers
