SikurOS was conceived to be a secure and robust operating system for devices that need to provide a security level higher than the existing in the market today.
Applying security features directly in the operating system can cause an undesired effect from the usability point of view, some may say. However, creating protection mechanisms where the attackers usually come in seem to be the most appropriate approach. Old fashioned attacks, like buffer overflow exploitation, configure situations that could easily be mitigated by doing direct implementations in the operating system. User’s current favorite Apps (like instant messaging ones), which have a massive number of users suffer from this kind of attack, opening user’s devices to the hackers.
Delivering the operating system based protection concept, while keeping product usability and flexibility, although it seems to be a hard task, it became an obsession to Sikur R&D team. The SIKURPhone was born from this need, usually neglected by security solution providers; and this concept came from past brainstorms, due to an innovative mindset of always pursuing excellence and the desire of being ahead of its time. After putting the product in the frontline, not only to the users but also to specialized bug bounty programs, confirms Sikur’s care of generating high value while guaranteeing its users’ data integrity.
