"E-business company Solsoft Thursday rolled out security software for Linux. Dubbed Solsoft NP-Lite, the software will be included with the Linux-Mandrake Power Pack or Deluxe 7.1 operating system, although it works with other Linux distributions."

"Solsoft NP-Lite lets system administrators establish policies for Linux firewalls and filter up to 130 protocols. It can be configured to work with up to three filtering devices and also works with the commonly used Linux IP Firewall release 2.0.x and Linux IP Chains release 2.2.x. IP Chains is the default Linux firewall product."

"NP-Lite is a subset of Solsoft NP software that lets the system administrator implement Access Control Lists (ACL) on network routers, firewalls and Layer 3 switches. ... Solsoft NP integrates with HP OpenView and works with equipment from Cisco, Nortel and 3Com, among others. It supports Windows, Unix, AIX and Linux."
