Linux-based Malware Requires Linux Focused Cybersecurity Strategy
The rise in Linux malware highlights the importance of a Linux-focused cybersecurity strategy.
Linux is a pervasive operating system for good reason. It’s lightweight, flexible, open source, and supports multiple architectures, all of which present great opportunity to innovate and deliver software and services.
In the device world, Linux is ideal for IoT because there’s no heavy GUI. It can be optimized for hardware-level workloads, and the licensing makes it easy for redistribution. Plus, the extensive open source community may have already coded something that suits the needs of a device maker and that can be plugged right in.
