Secure platform for industrial PCs
By Alison Dunn
Innominate Security Technologies and TenAsys Corporation have partnered to create a new HyperSecured IPC solution to OEMs. The solution combines an mGuard security software appliance from Innominate with a Windows system on the same multi-core PC platform using the latest TenAsys eVM for Windows embedded virtualization software. It thus provides a hardened and secure Windows platform for networked industrial PC applications in a cost effective way. In the joint solution, TenAsys’ eVM for Windows embedded virtualization manager provides the foundation to integrate a standard Windows operating system with the mGuard software from Innominate running in its own virtual machine on a single PC. Additional real-time cores can then also be made available in this environment such that, e.g., a real-time controller and an operator interface, both with integrated network security, can be implemented on one multi-core hardware platform.
