What is ekkoBSD?

ekkoBSD as a core OS offers security, stability, and flexibility to your infrastructure. As a default installation, it gives you an email server, Web Server, ssh, and several other services that would normally need to be added and secured. The goal of the ekkoBSD project is to provide a safe, secure, and simple to administer network operating system."
