Security net for small firms

Small firms and sole practitioners hoping to boost their business through an internet presence can secure their networks following the European launch of a firewall and management system for the growing Linux market.

WatchGuard is now offering five different models of its Firebox system to protect offices as large as 5,000 users down to small branches and workers connected to corporate networks from home.

The device will help prevent denial-of-service attacks on e-businesses like bookseller e.Bay, portal site Yahoo and CNN.com, which were disabled last week.

The LiveSecurity System, produced by leading Seattle-based Internet security solutions provider WatchGuard Technologies, is a subscription-based service that keeps security up to date. The system is automatically activated when a user installs the plug-and-play Firebox application.

The introduction of the Firebox SOHO and Firebox Telecommuter could meet the demand for reasonably priced network security, which has grown as more small and medium-sized businesses have started to use the Internet for e-commerce, business and corporate communication.
