As of 2017, 90% of public clouds workloads ran on Linux. According to GartnerÒ, "Rising interest in cloud-native architectures is prompting questions about the future need for server virtualization in the data center. The most common driver is Linux-OS-based virtualization, which is the basis for containers.1" Linux allows organizations to make the most of their cloud-based environments and power their digital transformation strategies. Many of today's most cutting-edge IoT devices and cloud-based applications and technology run on some flavor of Linux, making it a critical area of modern technology to secure. "In the industry, we see some very creative attacks and we have to stay ahead. Protecting the company, our employees, and our intellectual property is a priority," says John Breen, Global Head of Cybersecurity at Flowserve. "We'll continue to work closely and collaborate with Trend Micro to ensure our people and our company remain protected."
