Immunix stops selling secure Linux OS

Wednesday, 17 March 2004, 12:06 PM EST

According to Immunix COO Frank Rego, his company's decision to stop selling Immunix Linux wasn't a sudden shift but "more of a gradual change. We started in the appliance business with Trend Micro and Websense in the middle of last year." There was a layoff this week, but not a huge one. Rego says the company is now down to 20 employees from a high of about 25. He also says he hopes the company can start turning a profit by the end of 2004 -- but admits that he is an optimist.

Immunix Inc. was originally called WireX, and much of the research that went into early development of Immunix Linux was funded by DARPA. The company changed its name in 2003, and no longer receives federal research monies, but survives on a combination of cash generated through product sales and venture capital backing.
