MontaVista extends its core security services with MVSecure, giving access to extensive expertise configuring security use-cases regardless of Linux platform.

We have helped customers with security since 1999 and believe MVSecure offers an excellent baseline for products where security is critical. We invite companies to join us to make Linux more secure.”

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, November 1, 2022 / — MontaVista® Software, LLC, a leader in commercial Embedded Linux® products and engineering services, announces MVSecure to address the growing need of security across the Linux space.

While targeting primarily embedded platforms, where MontaVista is particularly strong, MVSecure services are available to customers on any Linux platform since many of the security configuration-tasks are generic across Linux systems. This strategy is further complemented by the success of MontaVista’s MVShield offerings, and building on MonaVista deep expertise of embedded systems, and by applying the same principles it to enterprise environment.

MVSecure-services typically follow a process:
1) Review the customer’s use-case and the explicit security requirements placed on the platform
2) Derive and plan a security threat analysis model that provides a prioritized set of security controls for the best return on investment considering the criticality of the customers’ application
3) Implement the security controls based on the customer’s feedback.
4) Provide maintenance and support services that maintain and manage the controls implemented

Examples of areas MVSecure addresses are systems that need specific security features such as Secure Boot, run-time integrity management, certificate storage and PKI system configuration, production line security process implementation, SELinux, ARM TrustZone, or TPM setup. MVSecure also addresses configuration-specific standards such as Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), IOTSF, or other domain-specific or internal corporate security directives.

Specifically, MVSecure also addresses certification programs that provide a more holistic view on the product’s security and lead to specific certification, such as Common Criteria or different variants of ISO.
MVSecure is usually deployed together with other MontaVista products, like CGX or MVShield, and other supporting services, but is also offered as a stand-alone service.

MVSecure is available to customers immediately.
