After 14 years in development, Kaspersky Lab finally released their own secure non-Linux-based operating system, designated as Kaspersky OS. To give you an idea of how long ago that was in computer years, the various versions of Windows XP had been released on October 25th, 2001. That was also the same year that Apple released Mac OS X 10.0. No doubt the long development time can be at least partially attributed to the fact that Kaspersky OS was designed from scratch rather than relying on Linux.
The popular cyber security and antivirus company Kaspersky has unveiled its new hack-proof operating system: Kaspersky OS.
The new operating system has been in development for last 14 years and has chosen to design from scratch rather than relying on Linux.
Kaspersky OS makes its debut on a Kraftway Layer 3 Switch, CEO Eugene Kaspersky says in his blog post, without revealing many details about its new operating system.
The Layer of 3-switch is the very first tool for running the Kaspersky OS, which is designed for networks with extreme requirements for data security and aimed at critical infrastructure and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
