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 network protection.
