Trusted Mobile Devices Based on INTEGRITY Multivisor Security Architecture Available for Trial and Pilot Programmes Today 

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and SANTA BARBARA, CA, Dec 18, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded and mobile virtualization solutions, today announced that it is teaming with HP to offer trusted mobile devices built with Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY(R) Multivisor(TM) virtualization technology for Android and enabled by HP's secure mobility service, to the UK public sector.
As part of a new teaming agreement with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services (UK) Ltd, Green Hills Software is piloting a secure mobile device initiative combining HP's secure mobility end-to-end service and Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY Multivisor security technology. The separation kernel-based Type-1 hypervisor delivers security that cannot be achieved with mobile OS-level mechanisms through application wrapping, containers, access control and encrypted workspaces.
These trusted mobile devices demonstrate form factor flexibility, near-zero impact to OEMs, and the ability to deploy high assurance isolation technology at the speed of consumer electronics innovation.
"When you consider that there are over 1.3 million mobile devices in the UK public sector, lowering cost, improving communication and increasing overall mobile security results is a huge benefit to the UK Government," said Christopher Smith, vice president of marketing, Green Hills Software. "Our separation kernel-based Type-1 hypervisor isolates at the hardware level, providing users with confidence in personal privacy while ensuring security and protection of critical enterprise information. Furthermore, the increased security provided with this solution will enable many new public sector departments to adopt mobile smartphones and tablets." MORE
