Today at 4:00 PM EST
Allendale, New Jersey, December 1, 2004 â LinuxSecurity.com, the definitive source for Linux and open source security news, today launched its new and improved website. Founded by Guardian Digital CEO Dave Wreski in 1996, LinuxSecurity.com has become the pre-eminent information resource for IT professionals and open source community members alike. The site, which is supported and maintained by Guardian Digital staff members, employs a global network of expert and volunteer contributors to develop feature articles, commentaries and reviews as well as compile extensive collections of the latest security updates to ensure readers stay informed of the latest Linux advancements. In addition to original content and streaming news, the revamped LinuxSecurity.com site contains a host of new features and resources.
New LinuxSecurity.com features include:
â¢ Comprehensive resource archives of whitepapers, HOWTOs, open source projects, documentation and more;
â¢ Breaking industry news stories and in-depth feature articles;
â¢ Interactive message boards;
â¢ More than 20 topical member discussion forums;
â¢ Extensive databases of local user groups and Linux-related event listings;
â¢ Live chat capabilities, and
â¢ Monthly live chat events with leading security and Linux experts.
Having created a site that satisfies the needs of both IT professionals â including engineers, programmers, designers and system administrators â and those individuals seeking to learn more about security and open source, LinuxSecurity.com has grown to encompass not only the website but also several leading industry email newsletters including Linux Security Newsletter and Security Advisories Weekly. With tens of thousands of weekly recipients, these newsletters represent yet another opportunity to help further the advocacy and adoption of Linux by users everywhere.
âLinuxSecurity.com was created as a result of being unable to find a comprehensive news source dedicated specifically to the Linux and security industries more than eight years ago,â stated Wreski, who has authored several definitive works on Linux security-related topics. âItâs been great to see how the open source community has truly embraced the site and millions of users have made it their own. I am very proud of the contributions the LinuxSecurity.com team has made to the community and the time spent creating the new site reaffirms Guardian Digitalâs dedication to ensuring LinuxSecurity.com continues to provide the in-depth coverage our users have come to expect.â
To celebrate the launch, many of the open source communityâs leading visionaries including Jay Beale, Brian Hatch, Lance Spitzner, Paul Vixie and Dave Wreski will be participating in a live panel chat today on the LinuxSecurity.com website (http://www.LinuxSecurity.com) at 4:00PM EST. The chat will be moderated by Robin âRoblimoâ Miller, long-time Linux-beat journalist, editor-in-chief of Open Source Technology Group (OSTG) publications including Slashdot, NewsForge, Linux.com and freshmeat.net, and author of the new, hot-selling book âPoint and Click Linuxâ from Prentice Hall.
This inaugural chat kicks off what will become a monthly online event where LinuxSecurity.com members will have the opportunity to interact with and have their questions answered online by leading industry experts. Anyone wishing to participate in the chat event can log on to the LinuxSecurity.com website and submit questions directly to Mr. Miller prior to and during the event.
Headquartered in Guardian Digitalâs offices in Allendale, New Jersey, LinuxSecurity.comâs global network of editors and web development staff creates feature articles, commentaries and surveys designed to keep readers informed of the latest Linux advancements and to promote the general growth of Linux around the world.
