The Atipa Firewall is an entry-level server with built-in floppy, CD, and tape drives best suited for small to medium sized organizations with up to 100 users sharing files and smaller databases. The Atipa Firewall Plus is a commercial grade ICSA-rated product that leverages the benefits of Progressive System's Phoenix Adaptive Firewall Technology (AFT) and Secure Management System (SMS), and has additional anti-attack features including a De-Militarized Zone (DMZ). Atipa Corporation is one of the leading suppliers of pre-configured Linux workstations, servers and clusters for information management today. The company partners with other technology and market leaders to make its products available in complete Linux solutions for businesses of all sizes. In early 2000 Atipa received over $30 million in equity capital from an investment group led by affiliates of Soros Private Equity Partners LLC, TA Associates, and WR Hambrecht + Co.
