One can add this to the portfolio of security services

Untangle, a start-up that sells software for network security equipment, is making its core product open-source on Tuesday.

The company already uses a variety of open-source software projects, including the SpamAssassin spam-screening software, the Snort software that detects some network intruders and the ClamAV software that can help block "phishing" attacks that direct users to bogus Web sites. Now Untangle is adding its own framework to the mix, software that handles chores such as network management, software updates, security policy settings and processing of network traffic.
