IT Weekly Roundup, Sept. 2
From the business wires: a firewall that IDs hackers, a GUI command line console and more.
A new firewall called GateSweeper
not only defends against cyber attacks
but also collects information about the hackers behind them through a rule-based
program module that redirects them to GateSweeper’s HoneyPot, which is
an isolated server at the company’s Command and Control Center. Once information
like the hacker’s IP address is collected, it is then handed over to the
ISP and proper authorities. http://www.gatesweeper.com
