Fingbox Network Security Appliance Adopts Canonical’s Ubuntu Core Linux & Snaps

Fingbox is a plug’n play network security appliance and mobile application for Android and iOS that promises to help you protect your smart home from a wide range of online attacks. To achieve this goal, Fingbox uses the Ubuntu Core operating system, a slimed-down variant of the world’s most popular Linux-based operating system used by millions of computer users worldwide. Ubuntu Core’s key feature is Snaps, an open-source, universal binary package format that makes software deployments and updates a breeze for IT administrators and companies like Fing, which have to deliver security and software updates to more than 30,000 homes using their Fingbox network security appliance to secure their networks and smart devices.
