SmoothWall Corporate Server is a distribution based on a security hardened Linux operating system. SmoothWall includes a hardened subset of the GNU/Linux operating system, so there is no separate OS to install. Designed for ease of use, SmoothWall is configured via a web-based GUI, and requires absolutely no knowledge of Linux to install or use.

For those that want turn key solutions, ItWorks offers Ready to Run Network Appliances with SmoothWall Corporate Server and its modules preinstalled and optionally pre-configured for your network.

The SmoothWall network appliance features a DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) to allow you to run a webserver, mailserver and other public servers while providing robust attack prevention, stateful packet filtering, and ease of use. This valuable feature is only found on enterprise level Firewalls such as SonicWall and Cisco. Plus unlike these companies that nickel and dime you to death on user licenses, and require maintenance agreements for updates, this product has UNLIMITED users!

There is also a wide variety of software add-on modules to perform specific security and VPN tasks. See the description at right and below for more information.
