    In Part 2 of our series on firewalls, another big name in software goes Linux. Check Point FireWall-1 helps Linux adapt to the critical area of securing enterprises. Also, some more firewalls for those who want to pay for their security.

    In January 2000, Check Point Software introduced a Linux port of its flagship product, FireWall-1. FireWall-1 is one of the best-selling products in the commercial firewall market. It now runs on five operating systems including Linux. I was excited about testing FireWall-1 for Linux because it is the first heavy-duty security suite ported to the Linux environment.
