Summary

Ubuntu is an open source software operating system that runs from the desktop, to the cloud, to all your internet connected things. Ubuntu is offered in three official editions: Ubuntu Desktop for personal computers, Ubuntu Server for servers and the cloud and Ubuntu Core for Internet of things devices and robots.

Ubuntu’s goal is to be secure “out-of-the box”. By default, the user’s programs run with low privileges and cannot corrupt the operating system or other users’ files.
For increased security, the sudo tool is used to assign temporary privileges for performing administrative tasks, which allows the root account to remain locked and helps prevent inexperienced users from inadvertently making catastrophic system changes or opening security holes.Ubuntu also supports full disk encryption as well as encryption of the home and Private directories

CloudMint provides Enterprise Ready  images of Ubuntu on cloud ( AWS marketplace and Azure).
