Three disparate companies—Fritz Technologies, LynuxWorks and TransLattice—joined forces to create the new S.E.C.U.R.E. Virtual Computing Platform to meet the exacting requirements of sensitive cloud deployments in government and commercial data centers. The companies posit that S.E.C.U.R.E., short for Secure, Enterprise, Cross-Domain, Unified, Resilient Environment, "creates the ideal environment for situations requiring secure hosting of applications, geographic redundancy of applications and data, and secure cross-domain transfer of information." At S.E.C.U.R.E.'s core is Fritz Technologies' secure server-based separation kernel (SepKer), which was created working with the LynxSecure 4.0 separation kernel from LynuxWorks. SepKer virtualization is complemented by TransLattice Application Platform (TAP), a "lattice" application and data distribution solution that adds resiliency and efficiency. TAP fully distributes both the application and its data across multiple VMs and system platforms within a secure domain, ensuring nonstop operations, even in the case of the loss of one or more components of the computing lattice.
