BW: WireX Partners With Microbits to Offer "Immunized" Linux Server

Aug 11, 2000, 23:15 (0 Talkback[s])

"WireX Communications, Inc., a developer of purpose-specific server software, commonly known as server appliances, today announced an OEM licensing agreement with Microbits."

"Under the terms of the license, Microbits will use WireX's Immunix server appliance software for their newest workgroup server aimed at the small to medium sized business (SMB), educational facilities, and government departments."

"Microbits joins a growing number of server appliance OEMs and system integrators that offer a network server configuration based on WireX's secure and easy to use software. Microbits cited that they selected WireX's Immunix operating system because it gives them the ability to get to market quickly, with a complete, highly secure, server appliance solution."

"WireX "immunizes" each server component against security attacks by protecting and hardening the applications/modules. "We call this `host survivability' which is above and beyond firewall protection, resulting in a technologically secure server appliance," comments Joonees Chay, CEO of WireX. WireX developed this value added technology used to host-secure standard Linux distributions, for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Each server appliance features RNAEngine, a web-based remote network administration tool developed by WireX that facilitates easy, menu-driven set up, configuration, and administration of the server appliance regardless of IT experience."
