Comodo Announces Launch Of Beta Version of Zero Touch Linux

By | March 22, 2006

Comodo, a global leader in Identity and Trust Assurance Management Solutions, today announced the beta 1 release of Zero Touch Linux (ZTL), a complete suite of back office server applications centrally controlled by a friendly web based control panel. A single installation of ZTL can act as a central File Server, Print Server, Domain Consoler, DNS, Mail Server, Database Server and Web Server. The package overcomes the traditional difficulties of deploying a Linux infrastructure by reducing the setup of multiple server types to a one time installation and configuration

ZTL, developed by Comodo’s Positive Software (PSOFT) division, takes a ‘best of breed’ approach by offering administrators industry leading server software pre-configured on Comodo’s Linux distribution, Trustix Secure Linux. The solution, free until July 1 (after which time it will be $99 per server) is available as a single downloadable ISO from and can be immediately installed on network servers.

Major features include:

Remote administration of servers from Windows and Linux workstations

One click server upgrades

Built on server optimized and secure operating system, Trustix Secure Linux

Ability to remotely install and configure Web, Mail, DNS, LAN and Database servers

ZTL Control Panel – Friendly, web based server admin tool featuring granular access levels.

The solution draws upon PSOFT’s years of experience in the development of web-hosting control panels such as H-Sphere and CP+. The web-based ZTL control panel features 3 levels of access rights; Admin, Domain and End User and can be used to administer the ZTL server from both Windows and Linux workstations. It offers inexperienced users a straightforward and cost-effective way to start up and control their office server infrastructure. Seasoned administrators will benefit from the simplification of their day to day administrative tasks by consolidating control of previously disparate server types into a single control architecture – saving time and reaping huge operational efficiencies.

“Zero Touch Linux is the only office server, server operating system and server control panel in one package. It’s also the easiest way for businesses of all sizes to setup and administer their back office infrastructure.” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, President and CEO Comodo. “Instead of navigating an ever choppier sea of separately managed applications, ZTL provides total control over all server types and upgrades through the same interface. This free beta release gives users hands-on experience in managing a Linux based office infrastructure the way it should be – easy!!”

Zero Touch Linux Beta 1 is available free until July 1. The ISO is available for download at
