Security firm takes trusted Linux onboard

Secure Linux operating system and software provider Trustix was today acquired by internet security company Comodo. Financial terms of the deal were
not disclosed.

Comodo, which is best known as a certification authority for SSL certificates, said that the deal will allow the developers of Trustix to take
advantage of Comodos sizeable R&D labs to further improve Trustix's software for the benefit of the Linux community at large.

The Trustix portfolio of Small Business and Enterprise class Linux-based products will be extended to offer a "complete business package" from Comodo.

With Trustix on board we can immediately roll out secured firewalls, proxy, web, mail and LAN servers to the many customers who have been clamouring
for such a solution from Comodo, said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Chief Security Architect, Comodo. It is critical that companies of all sizes focus on IT
security and todays acquisition of Trustix gives Comodo the opportunity to offer a comprehensive set of proven business solutions.
