Novell acquires Linux security company
The Waltham, Mass.-based company will sell Immunix's products as Novell AppArmor, Chief Executive Jack Messman said in a statement. The product is designed to protect Linux and higher-level applications from external or internal attacks and viruses.
Novell declined to disclose the purchase price.
AppArmor works on Linux products using the 2.6 kernel, but Novell will support it only on its Suse Linux Enterprise Server product, Lowry said.
