Trustix, the IBM independent software vendor of security and network
management solutions for Linux, announced today that its Small Office
Server is now available through US channel partners. Trustix also

pre-installed on IBM eServer xSeries server hardware. Trustix also

onto existing hardware. In addition, the Trustix Small Office Firewall
is available as a separate option for companies that do not already own
a firewall product or would like to replace their existing firewall.
These new offerings are aimed at small businesses with up to 25 network
users and require no in-house Linux expertise.
Bill Claybrook, Senior Analyst at Aberdeen Group commented: The Trustix
Small Office Server provides a complete range of products, now for the
first time targeted at the small business space. It provides a
comprehensive alternative for small business looking for a
cost-effective and easy-to-use solution.
Prior to this offering, our partners had to build custom Linux suites
by pulling together components from a number of disparate vendors,

Linux alternative to proprietary suites such as Microsofts Small
