5 Ways Your Company’s Cybersecurity is at Risk and How to Fix It

By Ian Ferguson | VP Marketing on Mar 10, 2021 7:24:40 AM

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.

Growing the Mission Critical Edge Ecosystem: Welcome Eurotech!

By Ian Ferguson | VP Marketing on Dec 1, 2020 2:28:23 PM

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!

Open Source—“When” and “If” in mission critIcal systems

By Ian Ferguson | VP Marketing on Nov 20, 2020 11:50:13 AM

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.

Airworthiness and Multicore: Intel, Mercury, and Lynx webinar

By Ian Ferguson | VP Marketing on Nov 9, 2020 10:30:32 AM

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. A great Intel Solution Brief is located here if you need additional information.

From Mission Critical Embedded Systems to the Mission Critical Edge

By Flavio Bonomi on Sep 18, 2020 10:48:08 AM

Across a range of industries, there is a broad understanding that the deployment of modern computing resources with cloud native models of software lifecycle management will become ever more pervasive. Placing virtualized computing resources nearer to where multiple streams of data are created is well established. It is the path to address system latency, privacy, cost and resiliency challenges that a pure cloud computing approach cannot address.
