VirtualLogix Conforms to Open Mobile Terminal Platform Security

VirtualLogix[tm], Inc., the Real-Time Virtualization[tm] company, announced its continued commitment to the Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP) by submitting a Product Profile Statement in conformance with the organization’s new mobile hardware security recommendations designed to help protect against threats such as malware and fraud attacks. The OMTP is an operator-sponsored forum that gathers and drives mobile terminal requirements. VirtualLogix VLX for Mobile Headsets is among the first products to conform to the “Advanced Trusted Environment” security recommendations through the OMTP Product Profile Statement.

“VirtualLogix was the first company to participate in our Product Profile process, and only through this kind of industry cooperation can the OMTP successfully continue its mission to improve mobile device security and simplify the end-user experience,” said Tim Raby, Managing Director, OMTP. “The mobile communications industry continues to grow at record speed, and it is essential to offer a clear set of products and recommendations, such as our ‘Advanced Trusted Environment,’ that can help every link in the mobile phone value chain. We are proud to have VirtualLogix’s continued support, including around the OMTP’s new set of recommendations for hardware security in mobile devices, which addresses a critical issue of protecting consumers and service providers alike.”

In its “Advanced Trusted Environment” paper, OMTP focuses on the full set of hardware security requirements that will enable new mobile services to be run in a protected and secure environment. In addition to its Recommendations Papers, OMTP offers its Product Profile process, an online tool that enables network operators, device manufacturers and platform and technology providers to quickly compare and contrast technology offerings that can deliver compliance against the OMTP Recommendations. By conforming to the new “Advanced Trusted Environment” requirements VirtualLogix is helping set the baseline for hardware security in mobile devices for the next five to ten years.

“As developers, manufacturers and service providers continue to open up mobile phones, platforms and operating systems to enable greater functionality, such as mobile commerce, creating a standard framework to ensure security is critical,” said Mark Milligan, Vice President of Marketing, VirtualLogix. “VirtualLogix has worked with the OMTP for years; in fact, we were the first to submit a product to OMTP’s profile process while the program was still in beta. We will continue to meet the forum’s recommendations which demonstrate our deep commitment to establishing a trusted mobile environment using virtualization software. VirtualLogix looks forward to its real-time virtualization software being adopted as a part of a unified, industry-wide approach to protecting mobile devices and their users.”
