DesktopSecure Protects Linux Workstations With a Resident, Integrated Product That Includes Anti-Malware Protection, Personal Firewall and Intrusion Prevention Technologies to Combat Malicious Attacks and Network Worms
Linux systems are becoming increasingly prominent, both for home use and in corporate environments. DesktopSecure protects both types of workstations with a solution that integrates the most advanced anti-malware protection, managed from a powerful graphic console.
“Today, protection for Linux workstations is essential,” explains Pedro Bustamante, director of the Corporate Software Business Unit. “With DesktopSecure, our clients can rest assured that all their network workstations are protected against malware that targets either Windows or Linux, guaranteeing their productivity and the integrity of their systems.”
This product consolidates network protection, as it includes not just anti-malware protection but also an enhanced firewall for workstations and an intrusion prevention system. This guarantees protection against network threats such as worms and other types of attack that would otherwise find Linux computers to be a potential weak point in corporate defenses. The final release version of DesktopSecure will be offered free to home users. This solution can be installed on all distributions of Linux and includes additional support for the most widely used distributions (Red Hat, SuSE, Debian and Fedora) in the corporate versions.
