LynxSecure 5.1 from LynuxWorks, Inc., now combines security with functionality, allowing developers and integrators to use the latest software and hardware technologies to build complex multi-operating systems (OS) based systems. LynxSecure 5.1 offers two types of device virtualization, either direct assignment of physical devices to individual guest OS for maximum security, or secure device sharing across selected guest OS for maximum functionality in resource constrained endpoints such as laptops.
LynxSecure also offers two OS virtualization schemes: para-virtualized guest OS such as Linux offering maximum performance; and fully virtualized guest OS such as Windows, Solaris, Chromium, LynxOS-178 and LynxOS-SE OS requiring no changes to the guest OS. Another key performance feature that LynxSecure offers is the ability to run both fully virtualized and para-virtualized guest OS that have Symmetric Multi-processing (SMP) capabilities across multiple cores.

According to the company, LynxSecure 5.1 is also the first version of LynxSecure that supports the 3rd Generation Intel Core processor family (previously known as Ivy Bridge).
The LynxSecure hypervisor has been designed to offer military-grade protection for the latest generation of laptops, desktops, servers and embedded systems. With its small footprint, high performance, and flexible virtualization support on the latest generation of Intel multi-core processors, LynxSecure brings the benefits of virtualization to users that have not had the opportunity to use virtualization before because of size or security issues. LynxSecure offers a secure multi-domain platform, enabling users to have separate virtual machines for browsing and corporate functions on endpoints, and also giving the ability to securely host multiple tenants on a single blade for cloud and server implementations.www.lynuxworks.com
