Reducing security risks from open source software

Microcomputer Research International (MRi) is to sell its 'Mr Network' branded network start-up kit through Tempo Superstores outlets. This is a new market for MRi, since networking is traditionally the domain of the IT expert, not the average end user. Ian Ross, sales director at MRi commented: "No other manufacturer offers such a high degree of connectivity in one package. We have designed the product so that literally anyone can use it." The kit is designed to allow consumer users to network up to five PCs without tech support, and is the first networking kit to be carried by the retail giant. Ross said that the product would consolidate the company's position in the communications solutions field by making networking user friendly. The two products initially available are: Mr Network Start-up Kit 10mb/s (MRi HUBK 10) and the Mr Network 100mb/s (MRi HUBK 100). Recommended retail prices are £99 and £149 respectively. ®
