Green Hills Software Puts Windows in a Padded Cell

Embedded systems vendor Green Hills Software today announced Padded Cell, a secure virtualization technology that provides virtualized operating systems such as Windows with provable protection against external attack.

Padded Cell makes use of Green Hills' INTEGRITY embedded OS and its expertise in secure software to block all unauthorized access to Windows or other popular operating systems.

Don't count on buying retail copies of Padded Cell for personal use, however. Green Hills is in negotiations with several processor and system vendors to make this technology broadly available in computers you buy in the future. If this happens, you may never have to install another security patch again.

Do you think secure virtualization is the answer to malware and system hacks? Tell me what you think at [email protected].
