Archive for November, 2007 Webcast on Tuesday November 27th; DeepNines

The group will be presenting a Webcast on DeepNines on Tuesday, November 27th at 1:00pm EST (10:00am PST).  
This webcast will focus on the innovative methods DeepNines has developed to keep networks safe and critical content accessible.  In working with educational institutions, financial, banking and oil and gas customers, DeepNines has observed that people have very clever ways of getting around traditional network firewalls and content filters.  In response, they've developed a solution that runs on the Apple Xserve with Leopard that eliminates any undesired access to the web; either via proxies, p2p, games, streaming and other unwanted content. Join Greg Jackson from DeepNines, who will demonstrate the different kinds of techniques people use and show how their solution provides superior protection to traditional methods of internet security, and also eliminates unwanted or “bad” traffic that bogs down and congests the network, while prioritizing the good traffic
