Security Analysis

by wmlaulo In reply to Who is your biggest threa ...

There are several companies that can do what you want, and have no product to sell. The one I am familar with is Guardent, Inc from the Boston area. They have a web site if you want to look at what they do. "" I did a little workwith them and know they have a broad area of expertise in the computer security area.

Independant Security Firm

by mhepler In reply to Who is your biggest threa ...

One of the Vendors we have been talking to is Internet Security Systems (ISS) they provide Managed security solutions, and would also be able to perform security Audits. they are an international Firm. their Web site is.. you may also be interested in downloading RealSecure and Internet Scanner Evals from their Website. these products allow you to scan your own system for vulnerabilities, and also detect attacks by recognizing the attack 'signature' (Intrusion Detection)

another Local firm here is Wizard Computer they will provide A security Audit and look for vulnerabilites, or if you have a security policy they will examine your network and ensure the ONLY traffic passig through your network confirms to the policy you have written. they are an independant firm which deals with Cisco, Check Point, Nokia, Netscreen, Gauntlet as well as many other products. the advantage being if you support multiple vendors products you tend to recommend the Best product for the application.

Hope this helps
