Linux.com: Southern Fried Firewalls

(Other stories by F. Grant Robertson)

"Security isn't perfect yet, but Todd Lewis from Atlanta-based SecureWorks spoke to 60 members of Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts group about the company's Linux-based outsourced security products. Other topics of this meeting included DSL over fiber-optic lines and the pending release of ALE member Bob Toxen's book "Real World Linux Security: Intrusion Prevention, Detection and Recovery."

"Its members in "recuperation mode" after the successful Annual Linux Showcase event held in Atlanta just a few weeks earlier, the current list of projects for ALE isn'tlong.. However, the SecureWorks folks have been busy as of late, so there was much to discuss."

"Lewis talked at length about SecureWorks' latest offering, iSensor. A Linux-based stateless firewall product has a significant twist: remote monitoring done at the SecureWorks data center in Atlanta. SecureWorks has done a considerable amount of work in real-time intrusion detection, adding a dynamic rule set system that can autonomously react to exploit attempts. SecureWorkers follows this with their 24/7 monitoring facility staffed with security specialists trained to react to persistent attacks."
