The Red Hat Secure Web Server 2.0 was named a top performer in the Network Applications category of the Best of Show Awards competition by Data Communications and LANTimes editors.

Red Hat Secure Web Server v.2.0 is the out-of the-box answer to your secure web serving needs. Based on the industry standard Apache Web Server 1.3.1, new features in the Red Hat SWS 2.0 include SSL 3.0, 90 days installation support via email, and the time-saving ability to easily drop 2.0 into an existing Apache configuration.

The Best of Show Product Awards Program is designed to help end-users evaluate the expansive offering of new products which debut at the Network+Interop '98 Atlanta. The editors of Data Communications and LANTimes, two of CMP Media's premier networking publications, scour the industry and show floor evaluating hundreds of new products. They select winners for unique and innovative products that strive to provide end-users with cutting-edge networking benefits.

Red Hat CEO, Bob Young said, "Linux and the internet-based, cooperative development model that Red Hat Linux is developed under is gaining a lot of momentum. The support Red Hat is getting from major technology leaders like Intel and Netscape, coupled with praise from networking publications like Data Communications and LANTimes is validation that we are taking tremendous steps forward in bringing Linux to the mainstream end-users. Our success now is absolutely contingent on us bringing Red Hat Linux products such as the Secure Web Server to the mission-critical, enterprise level."
