While in operation, Kaspersky Security System does not impact the real-time performance of applications managing physical processes, making full use of the PikeOS hypervisor architecture. The solution created by the two organizations provides embedded security and allows organizations to retain and reuse existing certification artifacts.
"By teaming up with Kaspersky Lab we bring IT security to embedded systems," said Knut Degen, CEO of SYGSO. "With the integration of Kaspersky Security System into PikeOS we can deliver a high-performance solution that will help our joint customers to secure their devices in the Internet of Things."
Kaspersky Security System’s key features include its ability to apply access control rules according to given security policy, classify the informational resources and configure the interaction of the components.
“An analysis of the evolution of trends in cybercrime suggests that any information system without a trusted infosecurity module poses a threat to the security and integrity of business processes, and may potentially lead to serious consequences. This is what drives our team to continuously improve our IT security knowledge and solutions. With this new product, we help our partners make their IT systems more trusted and reliable without affecting their safety,” said Andrey Doukhvalov, Head of Future Technologies, Chief Strategy Architect at Kaspersky Lab. “Kaspersky Security System is a platform with a unique component makeup and feature set. It ensures the required level of cybersecurity for any IT system with demanding security requirements.”
Kaspersky Security System is delivered as an OEM component designed to integrate into information systems, and is suitable for use by software and hardware vendors, as well as system integrators. With Kaspersky Security System, the vendor or integrator can apply basic, default security policies or manually fine-tune their security configurations to meet the requirements presented by specific systems or business tasks.
As part of a global initiative to ensure the information security of critical infrastructure objects, Kaspersky Lab is working to create a suite of technologies and services. This includes Kaspersky Security System, a secure operating system, and other components to cover all levels of industrial automation. All these components are fully compatible with each other; and when used in combination, they offer the client the most effective protection for technology infrastructures.
