Why is BizGuardian built on FreeBSD?
BizGuardian is built around a hardened FreeBSD kernel, which is exceptionally robust and stable. It has credibility and a long Unix track record compared to some of the newer variants available. It has a well-proven, controlled and structured development methodology. It is the platform of choice for many high traffic web sites including Yahoo! It supports the biggest single-machine ftp server in the world. It has a sensible and flexible licence, which encourages new added-value commercial products such as BizGuardian. The main thing however, is the stability and robustness of the kernel. This is the reason that many leading security vendors choose to utilize the FreeBSD kernel – although not all of them will openly advertise the fact!
