Security and Firewall Services
LinuxForce offers Managed Security Services (including Firewall
Protection) Customized for your Organization's Needs
For most businesses a firewall, though essential, is not enough to
protect against the widespread threats of Internet crime, intrusion, data
loss, compromised confidentiality, denial of service and other attacks.
To protect your network you need to employ industry best practices to
develop a comprehensive, anticipatory, and salient security solution for
your specific needs and unique risks. The solution needs to be dynamic
to keep current with the constant, mostly unpredicatable change that
is normal in an Internet-connected, global, technology-driven world.
Our customized firewalls include not just a battle-tested set of security
software, but we diligently employ comprehensive security maintenance
and monitoring procedures on an on-going basis to keep your biggest risks
maximally abated. Our service builds and manages your security so that
your staff can focus on your business rather than the complications of
maintaining the security and integrity of your information technology
LinuxForce can secure your business' Internet access
LinuxForce's security and firewall services provides your business
with a professional security partner (akin to the CSO or Chief Security
Officer that larger businesses employ) to assess, design, implement, and
maintain IT security. Our process starts with learning your business
security requirements and analyzing the risks and concerns you face.
Then we start building a security process for your business and its
special case technical, strategic, and budgetary needs. This might
include detailed analyses of sensitive subsystems and the identification
of important remedial actions. Finally, we develop an on-going plan for
security maintenance to ensure that diligence-based, concrete, security
practices are in place for on-going security mitigation.

Our managed firewall/VPN gateway service employs multi-layered defenses
built upon advanced Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) technology
and the Debian GNU/Linux operating system (OS). One key element of our
solution is the ability to connect your employees from home, airport,
hotels, or branch offices to your security sensitive systems with a
cryptographically protected Virtual Private Network or VPN. We use
both Openswan (for IPSec VPNs)
and OpenVPN (for SSL VPNs) to provide
an appropriate VPN structure to meet your needs. Other components may
(for filtering viruses out of web traffic), Squid (for web caching), DansGuardian (for web content
filtering and Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) enforcement and monitoring)
& iptables/netfilter (for
the basic stateful packet firewall function).
