Firewall Provider Comodo announces launch of Zero Touch Linux (ZTL) for Back Office Automation in one easy to install package

ZTL establishes new threshold for Linux server administration by incorporating all the back-end server applications under a single, web based user interface

Jersey City, NJ (July 5, 2006) - Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management Solutions, today announced the release of Zero Touch Linux (ZTL), a complete suite of back office server applications centrally controlled by a user friendly web-based interface. ZTL was developed by Comodo's Positive Software Division, specialists in web hosting and server automation.

ZTL takes a 'best of breed' approach by offering administrators industry-leading server software pre-configured on Comodo's Linux distribution, Trustix Secure Linux. The suite is available at $99 per server in downloadable ISO format from ztl.trustix.com and can be immediately installed on network servers. ZTL is ideal for small businesses looking to achieve an easy way to migrate to Linux, yet ZTL also serves the needs of the larger enterprise with sophisticated administration requirements.

A single installation of ZTL brings under one umbrella a File Server, Print Server, Domain Controller, DNS, Mail Server, Web Mail, Database Server, Web Server, Proxy Server, DHCP server, Content Filtering Server and a Firewall. The package overcomes the traditional difficulties of deploying a Linux infrastructure by reducing the setup of multiple server types to a one time installation and configuration.

Major features include:

  • Remote administration of servers from Windows and Linux workstations
  • One click server upgrades
  • Built on server optimized and secure operating system, Trustix Secure Linux
  • Ability to remotely install and configure Web, Mail, DNS, LAN, Database, Content Filtering and other servers
  • ZTL Control Panel - Friendly, web based server admin tool featuring granular access levels.

The solution draws upon PSOFT's years of experience in the development of web-hosting control panels such as H-Sphere and CP+. The web-based ZTL control panel features 3 levels of access rights; Admin, Domain and End User and can be used to administer the ZTL server from both Windows and Linux workstations. It offers inexperienced users a straightforward and cost-effective way to start up and control their office server infrastructure. Seasoned administrators will benefit from the simplification of their day to day administrative tasks by consolidating control of previously disparate server types into a single control architecture - saving time and reaping huge operational efficiencies.

"Our continued expansion of Zero Touch Linux is based on the tremendous customer response to our BETA version launched earlier this year", said Melih Abdulhayoglu, President and CEO Comodo. "ZTL is the only office server, server operating system and server control panel in one package. Customers can easily get total control over all server types and upgrades through a singular, easy to use interface delivering true efficiency improvements in server management operations."

The ISO is available for download at ztl.trustix.com
