BUSINESS WIRE--LinuxSolve announced today that it is shipping the Cache secure server appliance, the industry's first secure internet caching appliance. The LinuxSolve Cache is the latest in a strong line of secure server appliance products introduced by LinuxSolve. The Cache product enables content consumer-side or content delivery-side companies to speed up the loading of frequently accessed Web pages, cache DNS information, IP and Web address filtering for content, and reduce overall latency times, freeing up network traffic.
The LinuxSolve Cache ships with LinuxSolve's GuardWorks secure server appliance operating system. The most secure Linux operating system available, GuardWorks contains security features not found in other distributions of Linux. Among these features are protection against stack-smashing attacks, prevention of buffer overflows, detection and prevention of CGI attacks, SMB probes, and OS fingerprinting. Not only is the GuardWorks's powered Cache "virtually" hacker proof, but it includes a Web browser user interface for secure, remote server administration in 10 different languages. These include: French, Spanish, Russian, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, English, German, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese.
Explains Thomas Knapp, Founder and CEO of LinuxSolve: "The addition of the LinuxSolve Cache to our product line represents our serious intention to maintain our leadership role as a provider of secure server appliances to the ISP, ASP, and mid-sized business markets. Security, ease of use, and lower total cost of ownership to our customers are the driving principles behind every product we sell." Knapp says that Cache is one in a series of many innovative product announcements that his company will be making over the course of the next several months.
