Horizon Network Security
Horizon Network Security specializes in inexpensive
Spam and Virus filters,
hardening Linux servers,
including web, mail, DNS, and file servers,
conducting network and system security audits,
doing Linux system administration
for systems around the world,
with Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs),
and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
for mixed-OS networks, network and system security.
We provide 24x7 monitoring and support
of Firewalls, IDSs,
networks, and web servers for health, attacks, and defacement
and provide immediate response by a security expert.
Our Cracker Trap™ Adaptive Firewalls detect Cracker
attacks and probes automatically and lock them out permanently
in milliseconds, before they can do any damage. We can provide
virus, URL, and content filtering with our Firewalls.
We have provided Firewall/VPN solutions with automatic Failover
to a backup ISP connection when the primary ISP connection
fails and automatic Failover to a backup Linux-based Firewall
in case the primary one fails (even though this is a rare event).
We have recovered compromised systems (removed Trojan horses
and other damage from crackers of systems that we were not
asked to harden) and created Disaster Recovery plans for companies,
educational institutions, and government agencies around the
The number of flaws reported in Firewalls have skyrocketed
by nearly 50% over the past four years because System Administrators
do not know how to configure them.
Don't fall for an "easily configurable by the client" proposal
that does not protect you. This includes Cisco, Windows, Linux,
and appliance "solutions". Configuring your own firewall is
like doing your own surgery with a "How to" book -- if you're
not trained to do it, good luck!
Most of our security audits of sites with Firewalls find
that Firewall configuration errors make them almost useless.
Our Firewall prices include detailed configuration by a security
expert to your requirements. (We also can conduct inexpensive
Security Audits to see if your Firewall is doing its job and
can adjust the configuration of some so that they do their
Gartner says that IIS has a much worse security record than
competing web servers, such as Apache, and recommends that
organizations replace their IIS servers with a more secure
alternative. We can help you migrate to a secure Linux Apache
web server. Linux is immune from virtually all viruses and
worms, unlike Windows.
We offer our CAVU (TM) reliability:
Computer Access and Viability Unlimited.
