Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Solsoft, Inc., the leading provider of policy management for e-Business security, today announced a free security management solution for the Linux community. To facilitate distribution the company has entered into a worldwide partnership with MandrakeSoft, one of the world's leading Linux publishers. Called Solsoft NP-Lite, the software is included with the Linux-Mandrake PowerPack or Deluxe 7.1 operating system released last month. It is available worldwide through MandrakeSoft and its distributors (including Macmillan in English-speaking countries) as well as directly from Solsoft."

"As companies become increasingly aware of the need for effective security to do e-Business, we wanted the Linux community to be able to realize the benefits of protecting their networks with our simple-to-use, yet comprehensive security management solution," explained Vic Langford, CEO and president of Solsoft. "We decided to work with MandrakeSoft because their excellent reputation and broad global reach allow us to quickly get our hot policy management security solution into the greater Linux community."

"Solsoft NP-Lite is specifically developed for the Linux community. With Solsoft NP-Lite, users can define, deploy, and manage security policies for up to three interfaces on Linux filtering devices, specifically Linux IP Firewall 2.0.x and Linux IP Chains 2.2.x. This provides an excellent starter solution for businesses using Linux based firewalls to secure a segment of their network, and for Linux SOHO users connected via xDSL or cable networks to secure their Internet connections.
