Eppmann Technologies has a long-standing appreciation and bond with the OpenBSD community. Our technology masterfully integrates with OpenBSD and we look to continuing our union.

OpenBSD is a Unix-like operating system that is free and open-source. It focuses mainly on security and considered one of the most secure OS available. With its emphasis on security as a default, the open source code is reused in many other software projects. For example, the well-known Windows10 uses OpenSSH (a component of OpenBSD) with its own LibreSSL. Since the security is a default priority of the operating system, many of the security settings commonly seen in operating systems are unavailable.

Theo de Raadt created OpenBSD in 1995. De Raadt founded OpenBSD after leaving the NetBSD core team. His purpose was to create a research OS meant for developing security mitigations. OpenBSD is now maintained by volunteers. They are funded by The OpenBSD Foundation and the OS remains a fully free operating system.

There are numerous perks to using OpenBSD. A main one being that OpenBSD is completely and totally free. While all the parts of OpenBSD are subject to copyright terms, they all permit free redistribution. The source, binaries, and support are all free.

Despite being a free operating system, OpenBSD still functions magnificently. It runs on a great deal of hardware platforms. It is, as noted, widely considered to be the most secure UNIX-like operating system around. It is constantly being developed and tweaked with an international community of developers and users to bounce ideas around.

The OpenBSD team updates and releases the system around every 6 months, usually in May and November. We at Eppmann Technologies strive to integrate seamlessly with the OpenBSD system. As an enduser, you will find that OpenBSD is compatible with platforms such as alpha, amd64, hppa, landisk, macppc, sparc64, and others. To check compatibility, you can visit the OpenBSD official website.

OpenBSD is the second most used BSD after FreeBSD based on a survey of BSD usage from 2005. We understand the importance of an open source code and base our work in working flawlessly with OpenBSD. Much like OpenBSD, we strive to continually upkeep and maintain our work.
