ISS server protection products support Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 and Solaris 10.

Internet Security Systems, Inc. have announced what it claims to be the first enterprise security company to provide server security protection for the latest Linux and Solaris operating systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4.0 AS/ES and Solaris 10 SPARC.

Both the Solaris and Linux operating systems are widely used among enterprises. Linux is the fastest-growing operating system for the server industry, posting year over year growth of 20.8 per cent in Q4 2005 according to IDC. Additionally, according to a recent survey of ISS customers, 61 per cent of respondents said they are currently evaluating or quickly moving towards a Linux environment. Meanwhile, Sun Microsystems has stated in a June 2006 press release that more than 85 per cent of the Fortune 500 has Solaris 10 in development or production within their network environments. Both operating systems are popular among financial institutions, increasing the need for additional security to meet regulatory compliance initiatives and protect potentially vulnerable customer data. Centralised management capabilities allow companies to control, monitor and analyse security systems with minimal staff and low operational costs. Additionally, ISS intrusion prevention solutions are bolstered by the company's unique Virtual Patch technology. By shielding the underlying vulnerability instead of focusing on each new exploit, Virtual Patch provides protection even before a vendor-supplied patch is available. Support for RHEL 4.0 AS/ES is provided through the ISS Proventia Server for Linux product and support for Solaris 10 SPARC is provided with ISS RealSecure Server Sensor. Both are available now.
