Open Kernel Labs Inc. (OK Labs), a supplier of virtualization software for securing wireless communications, applications and content for mobile devices and automotive in-vehicle infotainment systems, has been purchased by General Dynamics.
The move is seen as expanding General Dynamics capabilities as a provider of secure mobile devices for public safety, civilian, military and commercial customers as well as in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI) for the commercial market. OK Labs will become part of General Dynamics Broadband, a subsidiary of General Dynamics C4 Systems.
OK Labs’ software is deployed on more than 1.6 billion government and commercial devices worldwide. Their technology supports a “bring-your-own-device” environment, allowing smart phones and other portable computing devices to be securely used for personal and business applications simultaneously.
OK Labs’ 'Defense-Grade' solutions for commercial devices enable secure separation of corporate data and applications from a user’s personal data stored or accessed on the same device.
