- Corellium is making its iOS virtualization tool available for individuals.
In a blog post, iOS virtualization company Corellium has announced that it is not offering virtual iOS-based devices for individual accounts. The company had previously only supported virtual iPhone and iPad devices for its Enterprise customers.
The company says that individual pricing will be the same as enterprise, charging per CPU cores required to run the virtual device. Corellium says that iOS devices can require up to 6 CPU cores to run.
Individual customers can choose either a monthly subscription model or a usage-based model to fit their specific needs.
The company has also stated that all individual accounts will go through the same vetting process as its enterprise clients to ensure their virtualization tools are not used for malicious purposes.
Corellium is the security research firm that just won a lawsuit filed by Apple this past December. Apple had claimed Corellium's virtualization tool violated its copyright, but the court ruled it did not, affirming it as a tool for security researchers.
