In Segment Three- "Starnix Inc kicks Microsoft in the Shin"- or how one clever Linux Company is taking advantage of The Gartner Group issuing an advisory recommending that organizations affected by Microsoft web-server security vulnerabilities "immediately investigate alternatives to IIS".
We will be joined tonight by long time friend of TLS, and VP Business Development for Starnix, Evan Leibovitch,

In response to growing concerns about the security of business web-servers, Starnix Inc. today announced a program specially tailored to assist migration towards the popular and secure Apache server.

As discussed on last weeks show, on September 19 2001, The Gartner Group issued an advisory recommending that organizations affected by Microsoft web-server security vulnerabilities "immediately investigate alternatives to IIS". Gartner specifically noted the Apache server as having "much better security records than IIS".

The Starnix Managed Web Migration Program offers a simplified path to Apache, through a number of Starnix products and services:

  • The Starnix Managed Web-server, which features a commercially-supported version of the popular Apache web server, running on Starnix's secured Linux-based platform.
  • Consulting services and training specifically designed to assist the transition from IIS to Apache.
  • Commercial-grade 24/7/365 technical support and monitoring, with a variety of response-level options tailored to client need.

Starnix Inc. is a privately-held Toronto-based IT support organization specializing in system monitoring/support, security, e-commerce and network infrastructure. Started in 1998, Starnix serves companies in many business sectors, keeping their systems efficient, secure and reliable.
