AdminForce Remote Introduces APW-1, the AdminForce Powerwall
Boulder, CO April 30, 2001
AdminForce Remote LLC today announced the introduction of a
new security product which will be marketed as, the AdminForce
Powerwall or APW-1.
APW-1 includes a unique automated intrusion report capability.
The Intrusion Attempt Report is automatically forwarded to the client
and the AdminForce Remote Monitoring Center. APW-1 includes a
full set of firewall control facilities such as packet blocking rules,
private IP address masquerading, port redirection, etc. APW-1 also
includes service proxies for ftp, web, DNS, CUSeeMe, and more.
Charles Fleming, CEO of AdminForce Remote said "network
security will now present a new level of difficulty for intruders on
networks that have APW-1 installed." He further said that this product
"adds an element of offense to the security issue. Until now, Firewalls
have been the modern equivalent of the medieval castle with a defensive
siege structure, but firewalls do not have the ability to pour hot oil
on attempted plunderers. The modern attackers are hidden behind a maze
of network complexity."
Quick and automated detection is part of the AdminForce
Powerwall. The intrusion is blocked and then followed by an
automated report to the client. An AdminForce rapid response
element is prepared to react to identify the source and follow up with
notification of the appropriate Law Enforcement Computer Crime Unit if
the client desires this follow up.
The AdminForce Powerwall is Linux-based and can
include content filtering and automated reporting, if this is a
client requirement. The genesis of the product was designed by
LinuxForce, the development affiliate of AdminForce
Remote, to meet the needs of large enterprise clients. The product is
being brought to market at a price level that will make it available to
businesses that previously could not afford this sophisticated level of
