Hybrid Decisions®  SaferOS™ : the operating system of Hybrid Decisions®  Safer_Computing™ Platform™


the peace of mind of zero disruptions & downtime

( due to any operating system updates / viruses / ransomware / etc. )

enjoyed by our SaferOS™ customers for 7+ years and counting

"After Windows10 updates lost my files, I managed to get into HDC's confidential program, and get a SaferOS™ laptop*. For the past few years I have had no update issues or viruses. I feel bad for those (around me) who are on Windows, suffering with update issues, viruses, and even ransomware."

— Rev. Fr. Luke M., another happy customer (non-techie)

What is SaferOS™?

SaferOS™ is an operating system that encourages defensive_computing

think defensive driving for computing™

in non-techie speak:

SaferOS™ is an operating system that strives to be —

  • pro-privacy: protects users from prying eyes

  • safer, simpler, un-intrusive, stable,

  • and just keeps working™

in computing/technology terms:

SaferOS™ is

  • an {immutable + compartmentalized + hybrid} Operating System (built over the past decade)

  • with {hardened + optimized} *nix Kernel

  • and {pro-privacy + encrypted + sandboxed} Apps

Hybrid Decisions® SaferOS™ is at the heart of our pro-privacy Safer_Computing™ Platform and is available exclusively —

  • via our Hybrid Decisions® Safer_Devices™ that are on the front-edge/client-side (e.g., laptops, 2-in-1's, handhelds, IoT, etc.),

  • via our Hybrid Decisions® Safer_Appliances™ that are at the back-end/server-side (e.g., 288-core small HPC Appliance),

only for SELECT/vetted customers via HDC-CAP due to pro-privacy usage concerns (details below)

What sets SaferOS™ apart from Windows & MacOS?

in addition to striving to be pro-privacy, safer, simpler, un-intrusive, stable, reliable, etc.
below are just 3 of the many benefits/features that come built-in,

  • immutable insulates you from operating system upgrade issues/burps, by giving you the ability to roll-back your entire operating system — in just minutes!

  • compartmentalized insulates you from a misbehaving app or website, by compartmentalizing each of them!

  • hybrid you can have your corporate/enterprise image of Microsoft Windows inside SaferOS™ and both you and your IT will not have to worry about what would happen if your Windows' updates burps, gets infected, or worse :-)

and here's just 1 of the many thought processes that went into making SaferOS™

  • less of a targetnefarious/ransomware perpetrators are in it for the money and therefore focus on the low-hanging fruit with the largest user-base! Basically, in addition to all the safer precautions that we have built-in, combined with the size of our foot-print, and thefore generally NOT worth their effort!

  • crux: and there is a lot more to SaferOS™ ... !

Why SaferOS™?
especially when giants like Windows & MacOS control the market

because our customers were fed up …

  • with spending time & money doing whack-a-mole for Windows bugs, holes, viruses, ransomware, etc., and

  • with changes for the sake of change (remember Windows-8) … etc.

so, we leveraged our decades of technical expertise … and SaferOS™ was born!

  • we continue to appreciate all those who have been giving us valuable feedback while using SaferOS™ over the years!

in computing/technology terms:

  • we are one of the few that were part of Microsoft's evolution (see 3 case studies on home page and more on our caliber page)

  • in addition to our Microsoft tech stack … we always had a non-Microsoft stack, being C & Unix technologists (since before windows).

  • and with decades of staying ahead of the curve as early adopters of technology, we recognized Microsoft pivoting in 2011 (just 1 example: Microsoft's switch to per-core licensing) to becoming a cloud commodity provider.

  • to insulate our customers (& ourselves) from changes, such as, user-interface/win8-start-menu, exponential license cost increases, constantly chasing vulnerabilities to mitigate viruses, ransomware/etc., and more.

… SaferOS™ has been in-stealth privately for many years now :-)

trust you see there is quite a bit more breadth & depth to our capabilities than we care to advertize/market!

e.g., we are technologists who get the business of technology & the importance of being upfront, clear, concise, & simple — when speaking non-tech & tech.

In an effort to give the "Edge" for our Customers, we launched the "Insider Program" that gave our Customers access to PRE-RELEASE Offerings, so they could leap-frog their competition. We could only accept a select few customers, on a case-by-case basis. Now this program is expired and complete replaced by the HDC-CAP offering.
