SANTA BARBARA, Calif., 13 March 2013. Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., is announcing major release of its Integrity Multivisor software for trusted mobile devices.
Enterprise and government mobile device users and administrators can take advantage of off-the-shelf mobile phones and tablet computers for personal and business use, with parties having confidence in security and privacy.
Integrity Multivisor is a virtualization solution built on security certified separation kernel technology that provides assured isolation between personas while also providing a native open standard execution environment for security-critical tasks.
In addition to the isolation provided by its separation kernel, built-in security components of Integrity Multivisor render common attacks impossible, including stealing encryption keys, key logging, and screen scraping. Yet, the security capabilities execute without the knowledge of the virtualized Android guest operating systems and without influencing user experience.
Historically, heavy guest kernel paravirtualization was required to achieve acceptable virtualization performance in mobile devices. These modifications are not only intrusive to the OEM development process, but they also slow time-to-market and result in a less maintainable and error-prone solution.
ARM Architecture Virtualization Extension (ARM VE) is an implementation for virtualization acceleration and hypervisor management.
Integrity Multivisor consists of the certified Integrity real-time microkernel technology coupled with facilities to execute one or more "guest" operating systems. Integrity Multivisor also provides a native, open standards-based environment for critical applications, such as security functionality and fast-boot real-time applications.
