Bob Toxen has 15 years of network security consulting experience,
21 years of Linux experience, and has been doing Unix since
1974. That's over 40 years of experience.
Do not be fooled by companies who have 30 different people,
each with the same 1 year of experience who claim that that
counts as 30 years of experience. They will offer you a single
solution because that is all they know. Cisco Pix? No problem
because that's all they use and all they know how to do is
click on a GUI until it seems to work. Heck, you could do
But ask them about a Linux IP Tables solution and they
will say "it's not as good" because they don't know much about it but
won't admit it. Linux is a technologically superior solution
and cheaper and faster. However, if you want Cisco, we know
that too. Want a Unix solution? We can do that too. Want
to protect your network of Windows systems? We have lots
of experience doing that.
Need help hardening, maintaining, upgrading, backing up,
or moving your collocated servers? We do a lot of that.
We can offer a wide range of tools, techniques, and services
because we have the experience doing many things, not just
the same thing over and over again.
Want something that doesn't exist? No problem.
We will create it using our 30+ years of programming
experience. We helped create Berkeley Unix so we
can create almost anything you might need.
Bob Toxen knows the major network protocols (TCP, UDP,
and ICMP, SMTP, HTML, etc.) down to the bit level so
he knows how to properly
protect your network and can analyze problems and attacks
down to the bit level. He has 10 years of experience just
writing network-based servers from scratch, including NFS,
so he knows networking problems and solutions.
Bob Toxen has decades of system programming experience
so if your ideal solution hasn't been created, he can create
it so it works right the first time. However, he is heavily
involved with the Open Source Community so if there is a
free solution he can install it for you.
Bob Toxen completed The University of California at Berkeley's
Computer Science Undergraduate Program so he understands
both the big picture and the details to give you the best
and most thorough solution. Berkeley was and is one of the
top schools in the world for Computer Science and Berkeley
and Bob Toxen helped create Berkeley Unix and some of the
design and code that now is a part of Linux.
Has the competition's consultant you are considering working
with even completed a Computer Science program at a respected
university? Is she an experienced programmer who can build
a custom program if that is the best solution or does she
just click on GUI buttons?
Bob Toxen doesn't just read the books, he writes them,
including "Real World Linux Security, Second Edition", the
best book on Linux Security out there. Put his talent, knowledge,
and experience to work to protect you!
Bob Toxen has been consulting since 1990 so he knows how
to do it right.
