The release of Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server version 10 (SLES 10) marked a new era for the Open Source server. SLES 10 was developed with interoperability in mind. It can be integrated seamlessly into existing network environments, both Open Source and proprietary. It provides a manageable, stable, secure, and affordable network environment. Novell has become an affordable and attractive alternative server operating system for corporate environments. Companies such as Marriott, CNN, Circuit City, HP, Dell, and Publix have adopted SLES 10, and now Industry certification bodies are recognizing the benefits of SLES 10 as well. Security Certified Program, an industry-recognized network security certification body that does training with the Department of Defense, will be adopting SLES 10 in January 2007. With the increased demand for SLES 10 and the absolute necessity of securing networks, there is an increased demand for trained SLES 10 network professionals. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Security introduces network professionals to the many security features of the new server program, and it contains Course Technology's proven academic pedagogy, making this the ideal classroom solution for teaching Novell.
