Often times an organization will set up their firewall and content filtering rules and assume each is working the way they want. We've worked with organizations that were shocked to find out what was making it through their filters and firewalls
Wilmington, MA (Vocus) July 23, 2009
Astaro Corporation (http://www.astaro.com ), a leading network security vendor, today announced that Astaro is offering a free silent business audit and forensic analysis for small businesses. The silent business audit and forensic analysis will demonstrate what spyware and malware is able to get by the organization's spam filter and will provide insight into Internet usage trends.
As part of the free silent business audit and forensic analysis offering, Astaro will deploy an Astaro Security Gateway appliance behind an organization's normal web filter for 14 days. During this time the appliance will monitor Internet traffic and record spyware and malware infections missed by the normal web filter. As an added bonus, the appliance will also block the transfer of any malware and spyware that makes it passed the normal web filter to avoid the spread of infections.

Astaro is offering a free silent business audit and forensic analysis to small business to help organizations gain insight into the effectiveness of their current web filtering tools. Many small businesses don't have the resources necessary to truly understand where infections come from and how employees are using the Internet. Having this type of insight into the network will allow these organizations to take steps towards creating a more secure and more efficient network.
"Often times an organization will set up their firewall and content filtering rules and assume each is working the way they want. We've worked with organizations that were shocked to find out what was making it through their filters and firewalls," said David Rogers, Vice President, Americas, Astaro Corporation, "The summer months can represent an excellent opportunity for many organizations to put their existing security controls to the test and at a time when end-user support tends to decrease. This free offering will provide valuable insight into network traffic patterns and help organizations evaluate their level of exposure to unwanted Spyware, Malware, and use of network resources."
