NEW YORK, LinuxWorld, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo(TM), Inc., a leading innovator in embedded Linux, real-time and high availability solutions, today launched the SecureEdge(TM) hardware brand, the OEM development platform for Linux-based appliances and devices. SecureEdge replaces the Lineo NETtel name and will be the basis for future OEM appliances from Lineo. Currently the product line includes the SecureEdge VPN Router and other SecureEdge brand products are planned for later this year. SecureEdge offers OEMs a flexible platform for adding and creating technologies that are fully brandable. Current OEMs include Crossport Systems, LinuxWizardry, Enterasys and several others. "SecureEdge Thin Servers (including the VPN Router) have been appealing to OEMs because of our track record in getting their product to market more quickly and cheaply than they can do themselves -- we make money for them," said Bryan Sparks, CEO of Lineo, Inc. "OEM partners will see a myriad of possibilities with the SecureEdge platform that will make it an appealing solution for future appliances and devices. If they can imagine it then we can make it happen for them." "We don't provide an unwieldy, restricted platform or generic design service -- we offer ready-made solutions for vertical markets," said Miles Gillham, senior product marketing manager, Lineo, Inc. "We excel in bundles -- which we can entirely manufacture, offer as reference designs, or provide full development teams. These are ready to be put in place as purpose-built solutions such as set-top appliances, web proxy portals, information kiosks, e-commerce accelerators, or a host of other specialized purposes. And every one of these is a full-featured VPN security appliance underneath. "The Lineo difference is the head start that we give you. Many of our customers are still amazed at our versatility. At the heart of that is our deep understanding of Linux coupled with our vast electronics engineering design team. Our customers learn a lot from us," said Gillham. About Lineo, Inc.
