A CIO’s Dream Come True

The biggest challenges in computing exist because our data resides, and our interactions take place on legacy approaches created when security simply was not a concern

The original computer scientists and engineers thought the world would only need a few computers and code was written by mathematicians who were more interested in easy access than secure access.

Now there are billions of connected devices, all running software with inherited benefits and flaws from the legacy of computing. There are potentially multiple looming crises within the global inventory of devices. This is the CIO’s nightmare.

Some large tech companies have repeatedly tried to move developers away from legacy tech and have failed, like Microsoft’s efforts to replace the Win32 API. It simply costs too much effort, time, money, and risk to migrate existing software, tools, chips, etc. to something new.

Until now! With wantware, rapidly try before moving over, quickly and cheaply rebuild existing functionality, and operate in a secure environment where there is transparency [via natural language], while entire classes of defects and vulnerabilities simply do not exist.

Concerned about software getting hacked during updates or new code breaking old code?

Wantware for Software

Redefining Software Security & Reliability

  • Wantware is natural language descriptions that are not executable code, which means there’s no code to hack
  • Wantware can be symbolic meanings that are not executable code, but are levels of detail that coders rarely provide
  • When wantware is provided as code, it is transformed to map to natural language and symbolic meanings, which makes it understandable, predictable and controllable
  • The Essence Agent checks wantware for arithmetic, logic, syntax, resource, code conflicts, parallelization and other errors and will not execute them

The Future of Software Updates

Wantware = Normal

Code ≠ Normal

Software updates with wantware are behavior-transparent, which reduces the chances that attempts to perform malicious acts will go undetected than updates with code

Updating software with code is opaque-security, letting unauthorized acts occur through concealed means

There is an abundance of evidence that there is no effective security in computing without transparency.

Why the World Needs Wantware for Better Software Security

Crises in Security

At the root of the most pressing software security crises today sits the problem of the opacity of code.

2020 Security Breach at Microsoft
The recently reported 2020 network security breach at Microsoft by Russian hackers  shows how even the largest corporations are vulnerable.
Biases in AI
The ethics challenges associated with AI, is described as “An ethical crisis in computing” by the Microsoft Research team. The increased use of AI algorithms brings new levels of software complexity resulting in unexpected biases against people of color, heightened privacy concerns, and a sense of urgency to address software-opaqueness.
Public Infrastructure Vulnerabilities
In 2020, a hacker tried to poison a Florida city’s water supply. The alarms are sounding loudly over the global infrastructure vulnerabilities that an increasingly connected world brings with its many advantages.
