LinuxPR: Mount Linux To Provide Protectix with Next Generation System Administration Tool

Aug 22, 2000, 20:17 (0 Talkback[s])

"Mount Linux and Protectix announced today a development agreement for Olympus, Mount Linux' secure remote administration tool. Under the agreement, Mount Linux will provide Olympus and development expertise to integrate Olympus with Protectix Appliance OS. Protectix, specializing in Open Source security solutions, found a need in their product line that both web-based or proprietary graphical interface could not fulfill."

"Mount Linux Olympus was the application we were looking for. Unlike a web-based interface, it scales beyond the control of a single machine." stated Kevin Sexton, co-founder and COO of Protectix. "We looked at a few proprietary management solutions and were disappointed. Mount Linux was the ideal partner; they were the only company we found who's strong emphasis on open source and security matched our own."

"Using open source software and time tested protocols, Olympus will enable Protectix customers to remotely administer and update up to hundreds of Protectix appliances using a single graphical interface."
