Lynx Software Technologies Named IoT Breakthrough's "IoT Security Platform of the Year” For Second Consecutive Year

Prestigious Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program Recognizes Standout Internet-of-Things Companies and Products

SAN JOSE, Calif. - January 13, 2022 - Lynx Software Technologies (Lynx), an innovator in modern platform software technologies, today announced that for the second year in a row, its LYNX MOSA.ic™ platform has been named “IoT Platform of the Year” by IoT Breakthrough , a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today, in the sixth annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program.

LYNX MOSA.ic for Industrial is a software development and integration framework for building robust, connected industrial solutions at the mission-critical edge, and comprises a domain-optimized bundle of real-time operating systems (RTOS), bare-metal and third-party operating systems along with other system integrations that have been proven to work together in a secure, deterministic way.

Lynx Software Technologies has added new foundational capabilities to LYNX MOSA.ic that enables information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT) operators the ability to deploy, monitor and manage multiple connected mission critical systems. The system does this via on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments allowing operators to now combine different management models on the same node.

LYNX MOSA.ic for Industrial is founded on the secure-by-design, lightweight hypervisor, LynxSecure. At its core, LynxSecure enables simpler software systems by harnessing CPU virtualization to guarantee the partitioning of systems into distinct, separate components. Simplicity and increased security are achieved by subdividing the chosen hardware platform into smaller compute platforms, eliminating the need for an operating system (OS) or traditional hypervisor to act as a global resource manager (and single point of failure).

“We are very thankful, once again, to receive this award from IoT Breakthrough.,” said Gurjot Singh, CEO at Lynx Software Technologies. “Our goal has always been to give mission critical operators complete control and flexibility over their systems. Since launching the platform in June 2020, Lynx has built LYNX MOSA.ic for Industrial into an innovative, industry-leading solution designed for performance.”

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from companies all over the world.

“Merging IT and OT networks in demanding industrial environments is incredibly complex and increasingly open to vulnerabilities,” said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “An innovator in modern platform software technologies, Lynx Software Technologies is enabling the architects of IIoT systems with LYNX MOSA.ic for Industrial, which addresses the system design challenges of bringing together the worlds of IT and OT. Congratulations, for the second year running, to Lynx for winning our ‘IoT Security Platform of the Year’ award.”

Uniquely, the LYNX product enables different users least privileged system access which increases the immunity of systems to both accidental and intended cybersecurity attacks. A truly distributed, least-privilege architecture, LYNX MOSA.ic is naturally resilient to advanced persistent threats and side-channel attacks.
