Privacy and Security
The clear consensus among experts is that Linux is the most secure operating system. While it’s the OS of choice for servers, enterprises. Deploying it on the desktop are few and far between – until now.
An important differentiator is that Linux is open source. The fact that coders can read and comment upon each other’s work might seem like a security nightmare. It actually turns out to be an important reason why Linux is secure, says Igor Bidenko, CISO of Simplex Solutions. “Linux is the most secure OS, as its source is open. Anyone can review it and make sure there are no bugs or back doors.”
Linux and Unix-based operating systems have less exploitable security flaws known to the information security world. Linux code is reviewed by the tech community, which lends itself to security. By having that much oversight, there are fewer vulnerabilities, bugs and threats.
