"Latest Linux financial services deployment reflects increasing enterprise penetration."

"The Turbolinux deployment, implemented in under 10 hours on Hewlett-Packard Netserver LH 3000 servers, allows Liderar Seguros' 40 branch offices to run their applications as if they were in the headquarter office, with remote secure online access to customer transactions and financial information."

"Liderar Seguros is pleased with the initial performance of the Turbolinux deployment. "We're very pleased with the Turbolinux solution," said Gustavo Clementi, Systems Manager for Liderar Seguros. "We eliminated many problems and our branch offices find it much easier and less expensive to link up to our headquarter's operations and data."

"Not surprisingly, security was said to be the paramount issue for the insurance company. The systems integration firm managing the deployment installed Turbolinux Server proxy/firewalls using secure shell technology that funnels data through an encrypted channel for inter-branch communications."
