Fox Technologies Sponsors Red Hat Summit 2015 with Raspberry Pi Giveaways

Fox Technologies gears up to promote security and efficiency at Red Hat Summit 2015 with its “Get inside the BoKS” promotion. Visitors will have the chance to win a Raspberry Pi.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Tuesday, May 19, 2015 – Fox Technologies, Inc., a portfolio company of Parallax Capital Partners, today announced its sponsorship at Red Hat Summit 2015. Located at booth #218, Fox Technologies will showcase its new release of BoKS ServerControl 7.0, a comprehensive identity and access management solution for UNIX and Linux platforms. Red Hat attendees who visit the Fox Technologies booth will have the opportunity to win a Raspberry Pi every 30 minutes.

The booth will be staffed with information security experts who have over 30 years of experience with Linux open source technology in the financial industry. Their objective is to initiate dialog with system administrators, security administrators and IT managers on how to improve efficiency and security within their networks.

“The workload for systems and security administrators continues to grow at an exponential rate with the ease of deployment with today’s virtualized environments,” says Michael Murray, Director of Sales Engineering at Fox Technologies, Inc. “We’re seeing a lot of burned out workers who spend most of their days executing manual tasks or trying to maintain home grown solutions in an attempt to keep pace with the growth.”

“Reading through today’s headlines, it’s obvious that perimeter controls alone are insufficient,” adds Ken Deschene, Sales Implementation Engineer at Fox Technologies, Inc. “Security administrators need tools that can efficiently manage endpoints with granular controls that offer multiple authentication methods.”

BoKS ServerControl is a comprehensive management solution for any size enterprise whose networks include multi-vendor UNIX or Linux platforms. It meets the administrative and security requirements of financial institutions, government organizations, and any corporation that operates in a dynamic, diverse, and security-sensitive environment. Administrators can run under their own identities and credentials, protecting application or privileged accounts, including the “root” account.

Red Hat Summit runs from June 23-26, 2015, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA.
