Ubuntu is at the forefront of safety and reliability
Your Ubuntu software is built with unrivalled security in mind — and is secure from the moment you install it and will remain so because Canonical’s team of security experts will ensure that security updates are always available on Ubuntu first.
Pre-installed on certified hardware
Ubuntu runs on the world’s best hardware from partners such as Dell, HP and Lenovo. And with nearly 90% of PCs shipped by the major PC companies already certified to work with Ubuntu, it is easy to find hardware that will work for your business.
The developer’s favourite
Ubuntu is used by thousands of development teams around the world because of its versatility, reliability, constantly updated features and extensive developer libraries.
If you’re managing developers, Ubuntu is the best way to increase your team’s productivity and guarantee a smooth transition from development all the way to production.
