Why Linux Should Factor Into Your Security Strategy
Linux is a pervasive operating system—and for good reason. It’s lightweight, flexible, multi-architecture supportive and open source, all leading to loads of opportunity. Security is one of the main reasons Linux is chosen. In some ways, it can be a more stable and secure base OS to start from, no matter the use case.
Today, Linux-based systems run servers, mainframes, routers, smart cars, cloud workloads and more.
Linux is scalable, modular, reliable and efficient. It offers a backbone for specific implementations that is simple to tailor and adapt.
The cloud and IoT are two technologies that are built almost exclusively on Linux due to these benefits.
