The Antivirus Firm Kaspersky Launches Its Own ‘Hackproof’ OS
The well-known specialist in antivirus and security software company has announced that they finally have ready its own operating system. Kaspersky confirmed last October that they were working in a safe to protect the key systems used in infrastructure and industries.
The CEO of the company Kaspersky, Eugene said that “I’m hoping it’s obvious by now how protecting the IoT and, of course, critical infrastructure (industry, transport, telecoms, etc.) from IT threats is simply mandatory,”.
Hence, the security firm Kaspersky launched a Layer of 3 switch designed especially for networks with extreme security requirements to protect your data. It will be the first device to run Kaspersky OS, a system whose technology is designed to be adapted to the Internet of things (IoT).
The company says that for a hacker to compromise this new platform would need to break the digital signature, which is before the introduction of quantum computers and that would be prohibitively expensive. Kaspersky OS is based on a microkernel architecture, which allows various modifications to the operating system depending on the specific demands of each client.
Another thing we have emphasized is the fact that they have developed this system from scratch. To prevent anyone assume they have used Linux as a base, Kaspersky has made clear that its OS does not have one iota open in the system. They claim that popular distributions are not designed with security in mind, so for them, it was more easy and safe to start from scratch and do it all well.
The company also took the opportunity to mention the recent massive DDoS attack suffered Dyn DNS and affected an enormous amount of popular websites. They emphasize that systems like yours can provide the basis for the development of protected devices, including IoT. They believe it is necessary to build devices that from the beginning virtually impossible to hack, albeit more expensive.
