Parrot OS 5 on Azure is used by hundreds of thousands: cybersecurity, software engineering, and casual users across the globe. This lightweight and secure open source Linux distro is ideal for information security (infosec) operations. Its openly accessible source code allows flexible programmer use with multiple programming languages. The OS supported by the Linux kernel implements various installation media and works smoothly on most computer hardware.
Parrot OS is compatible with all Debian software packages. It provides hundreds of tools for penetration testing (pentesting), ethical hacking, and digital forensics.
Parrot OS’ primary use is internet security applications and testing vulnerabilities.
The Advanced Package Tool (APT) from Debian is the front end package manager for installing and updating apps. It includes command line tools to manage and search for packages. Casual users benefit from Parrot OS’s use of lightweight MATE and Xfce desktop environments, and LightDM display manager for optimal performance across hardwares. ARMv7 processor architectures makes ParrotOS compatible with most Raspberry Pi, embedded systems, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices without sacrificing performance.
ParrotOS maintains cutting-edge security with a rolling-release schedule so you always have the latest updates installed. The custom Linux kernel is the first line of resistance against potential attackers. Full disk encryption (FDE) promotes secure data storage and handling of sensitive information. Privacy tools include adblocker, Tor for anonymizing browsing, Anonsurf to anonymize entire systems, and Wifiphisher to test security over WiFi.
Workstations are limitlessly customizable to specific projects and preferences, thanks to free and open source code. Its advanced Integrated Development Environment (IDE) VSCodium comes preinstalled with programming languages Node.js, Rust, Python, Java, C, and Golang.
Ntegral certified images are always up-to-date, secure, and built to work right out of the box.
Ntegral packages applications following industry standards, and continuously monitors all components and libraries for vulnerabilities and application updates. When any security threat or update is identified, Ntegral automatically repackages the applications and pushes the latest versions to the cloud marketplaces.
