Introduction to security

In the past services offered on the Internet mostly was unprotected and traffic was sent in clear text between server and user. Firewalls was unknown to most users.

Times has changed now, spying on traffic and hacking is all around. Actually it needs less than a few minutes to have the first bots trying all of their exploit scripts against your IP address. Never think you are not important enough for hackers because in the first step bots operates on IP addresses without knowing who is behind this IP address. Things will be exploited pretty fast.

A modern firewall with strong security, combined with other prevention methods like transparent proxy servers scanning for viruses, using modern and state-of-the-art server technologies is a must for every system connected to the Internet.

After using this great solution a long time I finally wrote this e-book for you.
