Apr 26, 2000, 12:39 (0 Talkback[s])

"WireX Communications, Inc., a web-based supplier of built-to-spec and highly secure Linux server appliance software, today announced that it has closed a $3 million round of venture capital funding. This first round of financing includes investments by Satwik Management, LLC, Zodiac Venture Fund, and Galaxy Venture Partners. A consortium of private investors provides the balance of the funding."

"Funds from this round of financing will be used to support WireX's continuing growth in sales, to increase a national recruiting effort for top IT talent, and to widen WireX's library of available software components from which WireX partners will build their own Linux server appliances online."

"WireX has developed a family of products and technologies that facilitates web-based delivery of built-to-order, highly secure Linux operating systems for server appliances. At the heart of each WireX server appliance is Immunix(tm) OS, a standard Linux distribution hardened with host-survivability technology that "immunizes" servers against current and future vulnerabilities. WireX hardens the Linux kernel and key modules and applications, then optimizes the operating system for server duty. Immunix technology tools provide three key benefits: host security, high availability, and system certification verification.
