What is a cyber immune computer and how does it protect against viruses?

February 23, 2024  22:18

In 2023, the cybersecurity solutions of Kaspersky Lab blocked over 126 million cyber threats on devices belonging to Russian users. To minimize such risks, Kaspersky Lab recommends abandoning laptops and traditional computers in favor of cyberimmune thin clients.

As reported by Gazeta.ru, these are compact corporate computers, with a key feature being that all information and work applications are stored on a server.

Cyberimmune thin clients consume less electricity compared to regular computers and are more cost-effective in terms of maintenance. Moreover, they are more compact in size—only requiring a keyboard, mouse, and monitor for operation. Such computers may find demand in governmental institutions, commercial entities, industrial plants, and various educational institutions. For instance, similar devices are already being procured for governmental institutions, industrial enterprises, and educational organizations.

"Thin clients running on traditional operating systems can be hacked using simple tools within minutes and used for spying, stealing confidential data, and launching attacks on corporate infrastructure. We believe that the future development of thin clients should be determined by cyberimmunity. Attacks on cyberimmune devices are ineffective; they continue to operate even in aggressive environments," stated Victor Ivanovskiy, the head of business development at KasperskyOS.
