It was December 24, 2019 and a few of us were gathered in the Lynx office to contemplate some strategic initiatives for the year ahead. It is so challenging inside a small company to find the head space necessary to think in a truly strategic way about what we saw going on in the industry and, from that, where we felt we could deliver immense value.

Lynx Software recently issued a survey (link to the PR) that found that 36% of Americans have either been impacted themselves or known someone that has been impacted by a cybersecurity attack since the start of COVID-19. The findings indicated several reasons these attacks may be so successful, including the fact that less than half (49%) of respondents said their organization’s cybersecurity has strengthened since the start of the pandemic. With some organizations not taking cybersecurity seriously enough—as well as employee IT behavior leading to increased threat exposure—we have outlined five ways employee and company cybersecurity could be at risk and how these can be fixed throughout and post-pandemic.

Lynx Software Technologies has collaborated closely with CoreAVI for many years. The most visible result of that partnership has been the panoramic cockpit display for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. During the span of this partnership, we have watched as CoreAVI has continued to build up a wealth of experience creating software drivers for a wide range of graphics technologies.

In the middle of 2020, Lynx Software Technologies announced its first product that was specifically focused on industrial use cases. The value chain and set of technologies needed to deploy secure, updateable platforms in modern factories, buildings and cities is extremely complex. No one company can deliver all of the elements. It takes a village. Lynx is extremely excited to welcome Eurotech into our ecosystem…and vice versa….Lynx is extremely excited to enter into Eurotech’s set of partners!

Earlier in November I was speaking as part of a track on cybersecurity at (Virtual) Electronica, a tradeshow held every two years in Munich. One of the questions related to when open source hypervisors will appear at the heart of mission critical systems. Mission critical systems are those that simply have to work all the time in a predictable way. Relevant applications include avionics, rail infrastructure, self- driving vehicles.

Lynx Software Technologies was invited, along with Mercury Systems (a partner), to participate in a webinar sponsored by Intel that focused on harnessing multicore processors for use in mission critical avionics platforms.
During the webinar, Intel announced they were licensing a Flight Safety Evidence Package for the Intel C3708 processor (I still have to use the brand names though….this is Denverton!). This package was developed to support Lockheed Martin’s certification efforts for the F-35 joint strike fighter and have been one of the primary programs that has generated a great working relationship over the last few years between the two companies.
