    Anthony Pell

    Anthony's love for Linux started in about 2010, when he first installed Ubuntu on his desktop. He specializes in in reviewing security technology -- firewalls, intrusion detection, mobile devices -- plus other software, antivirus/antispam tools, embedded, and apps.

    In addition to reviews, Anthony also writes in-depth evaluations and comparisons between similar products, features, interviews, news and trend pieces, tips and how-tos, lists, gift guides, slideshows, columns, and opinion pieces.

    Anthony is just as comfortable writing for a tech-savvy audience as he is for mainstream/lifestyle audiences who aren't as technical but still need straightforward, knowledgeable advice.

    Editorial Mission

    To serve as the central voice of Linux and Open Source security news with content driven by the security needs expressed by our community of readers.

    LinuxSecurity.com strives to provide objective and helpful information about security as it relates to the fast-growing, revolutionary open source product that is Linux.


    Our History

    LinuxSecurity.com was first launched in 1996 by a handful of Open Source enthusiasts and security experts who recognized a void in the availability of accurate and insightful news relating to open source security issues. Led by Dave Wreski, who currently serves as chief executive officer of Guardian Digital, this group has grown into a global network of collaborators who devote their time to gathering and publicizing the latest security news, advisories and reports relevant to the Linux community. Headquartered in Guardian Digital's offices in Allendale, New Jersey, LinuxSecurity.com's editorial and web development staff also creates feature articles, commentaries and surveys designed to keep readers informed of the latest Linux advancements and to promote the general growth of Linux around the world.
