"In this interview, Avi Fogel, CEO of Network-1, offers his perspective on the state of Internet security, his experience with Windows and security, and the advantages and disadvantages to Open Source security...."

"LinuxSecurity.com: What do you think of Linux as a viable platform for developing security products? Has Network-1 given any thoughts to developing security software for Linux?"

"Avi Fogel: While there are some differences in vulnerabilities between OS's and the availability of shareware to address these - Linux, like Windows and traditional Unix suffers from the lack of granular Network Access Controls and built in Intrusion Detection and Prevention capabilities and capabilities for extensive logging of network transactions. Network-1 sees Linux as a very important platform that we want to be able to address in the future as part of a full host-resident distributed firewalling solution."
