And I thought I was secure with antivirus and a firewall

Makes me think, I dont know that much about data security after all.....
But hey my clients THINK I know a LOT .... and thats why they pay me :)
I am seriously relieved that data security is not my main field of work anymore....
Hope my clients dont read this :)

And even if they do, they dont know me by the name of Ratan Jain :)

Or any of my so called aliases I am supposed to have :)

Hi Kalyan,

Just Happen To Notice Your Query.

Try A Hardware Based Little Thing Called AlphaShield Google it to find out more about it. If You Like What You Read Let Me Know If You Have Problem Getting Hold Of It, I Can Get My Office In NY to send it to me.

By The Way I Am Already Using It.....Seems OK So Far...:)

Thanks Savant, but for now prefer to keep my costs as low as possible (till i can hopefully build at least a subsistence level interest income which'll allow me to take up trading FT)

BTW, i already have an AntiSpy with HIPS - a little dumb but thorough - & am currently looking for a good lite sandbox (free offcourse ;)).

Will eventually go for a router.

Regards,
Kalyan.

Hi BAV,

Wow! You Did A Lot Of Research On This Can't Fault Your Research. Anyways I Think I Got This One For Less Than 3 Dollars, I Think I Paid A Little More For Shipping To U.S. From eBay Ofcourse...:) & Can't Really Ask Much More Of This Than What It Delivers, Considering I Got It Practically Free.

OK If Anybody Has A Bit Of Moolah To Splurge, I Would Suggest Cisco Pix.


As Always Warm Regards

Hi Savant,

I am doing fine. This product has been there since 2002 and I have received various reports by talking to users about this. Some have actually experienced drop in speed. Many say it works fine. But what I gathered from people who are very well respected in the security industry is that this is just a router with SPI and NAT (for selective packet filtering and port forwarding), *BUT* where users cannot change the firmwire settings at will, *and* another level of firmwire backup so that it is set back to factory settings if changed by malicious software (ya it has software, unlike what was thought previously). Product is okay , but costly.
I would suggest a *wired* router from linksys (available at all major cities in India or ordered online) with SPI and NAT (latter included by default) will do the job fine. Alphashield is great tool for users who are not comfortable in tweaking with the firmwire/settings etc. Otherwise it is as bad or good as any hardware FW.

And yes, whether you have AS or Router, its better to keep a lightweight FW like OnlineArmour *free* with HIPS enabled, cos you never know when the router can be breached!

This is a section that needs lots of contribution. Looking forward to more from you!

Best Regards,
BAV

Hi BAV,

Went Through My Paypal Receipts Infact A Little Correction On My part Considering I Bought 3 Items From The Same Seller & Alphashield was 5.74 Dynex Numeric/Spreadsheet K/B was 0.99 & Apple USB Power Adapter was also 0.99
Total Damages Including Shipping was 17.63 Including 5.00 Discount On Shipping For Multiple Items.

Please Disregard The The Figures Mentioned Earlier & Aplogise For The Wrong Figures Considering I Bought It On 2nd Feb 2007.
