InternetWeek: Linux Suppliers Focus On Improved Security

“Efforts are under way to make Linux more secure for e-business,
now that it’s making inroads as an enterprise server platform.”

“Three leading suppliers of Linux systems-Caldera, Red Hat and
SGI-last week said they will integrate Tripwire Inc.’s intrusion
detection and prevention software into their offerings.”

“Tripwire also plans to release an open source version of the
software during the third quarter.”

The move should help convince IT managers that Linux is a
secure operating system for vital business applications
, said
Aberdeen Group analyst Eric Hemmendinger.”
