HERNDON, Va., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- InZero Systems, Herndon VA, has created an Android tablet - - the "WorkPlay Tablet™" - - with two hardware-separated operating systems (OS's). Operating code in one (including any malware) cannot access the other.
One OS is called the "WorkZone," the other the "PlayZone," recognizing that tablets are increasingly used for both enterprise and personal activity. The WorkPlay Technology™ thus solves the mobile device dilemma whereby enterprise data is exposed to malware introduced through personal use.
The two OS's do not share resources that could possibly cause cross-contamination, distinguishing the technology from methods such as sandbox/containerization, virtualization, profile separation. This critical hardware-enforced separation of resources has been independently confirmed by Cygnacom Solutions, Inc. of McLean, VA. WorkPlay Technology™ adds to the security offered by such other methods.
Each Zone can be managed autonomously and contain separate Android security applications, as desired. InZero also offers firmware-embedded Mobile Device Management for maximum IT administrative control in a Zone. Switching between Zones takes a few seconds by touching a switch icon. The Tablet also embodies additional security features such as AES256 encryption and a secure boot.
Tom Suder, of Mobile.Gov observed, "I have seen a lot of new mobile technologies introduced in the past few years, but this is the first time I have seen an Android tablet like this. InZero has created a dual persona tablet with complete hardware separation, not utilizing a container or virtualization. This is truly innovative technology that should be watched."
Lou Hughes, Chairman of InZero, who formerly served as President of General Motors International, President of Lockheed Martin and U.S. State Department Chief of Staff for Afghanistan Reconstruction, noted, "We think the WorkPlay Technology keeps important data out of harm's way by making sure that it can't be corrupted through casual or careless use of the device, and that makes the administrator's job much easier. Personally, I use one Zone just for online transactions, and the other for everything else."
The WorkPlay Technology™ can be adapted to mobile devices using CPUs with Trustzone technology.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
