Lynx Software launches LynxSafe, enabling enterprise IT teams to extend Lynx's long-standing experience in secure mission-critical systems to end-points.

FREMONT, CA: Lynx Software Technologies, a pioneer of modern platform software technologies, recently announced the availability of LynxSafe, a family of products that enables enterprise IT teams to extend Lynx's long-standing experience in secure mission-critical systems to end-points. The first LynxSafe product, which is aimed at secure laptops, builds isolated partitions on which multiple security functions and secure operating systems can be managed. It helps architects build products with varying protection levels for business and personal domains, which is crucial as people continue to work remotely and in zero-trust environments.

As people continue to operate remotely in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprise and IT securities have faced a crisis of unparalleled proportions. According to a Lynx report from the Q1 2021:

• Almost 4 in 10 (36 percent) of those affected by a cybersecurity breach during the pandemic or met anyone who had been.

• Over half of respondents (51 percent) felt their company's cybersecurity efforts had not been improved since the outbreak started.

• During the pandemic, 60 percent of participants said they were unaware of any apps or resources that did not meet their employers' security requirements.

LynxSafe offers a tested solution to perimeter-based security as employers continue to provide remote and hybrid work options, addressing the unprecedented challenges of expanded, dispersed workforces on top of the increasing threats IT teams were already experiencing.

"Organizations must deliver a failproof way to secure end-points such as laptops, edge servers, networking cards and other devices in a work-from-home, zero-trust environment," said Pavan Singh, VP of Product Management at Lynx. "Effectively, what LynxSafe enables is the ability to extend the company firewall to the place where you are working, be that a house, a coffee shop, or an airplane. Lynx has a long history of securing mission-critical applications onboard vehicles for companies including Airbus, Collins Aerospace and NASA, where application failure is not an option, and we're confident in LynxSafe's ability to emulate this success for IT organizations."
