Microsoft Windows server 2003.
Aljazeera Telecom has specialized teams for
configuring and installation of servers. The teams do
configuration and installation and maintenance, and remote help
for our customers. We do provide Microsoft Windows Server 2003
as a good solution for private networks.
The GuardianBox is a small hardware unit that
provides a method for optimizing, controlling, monitoring and
administrating the flow of information to and from the Internet.
It can provide a number of useful benefits to all types of
broadband users and is compatible with most operating systems
such as Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix etc and will protect your
entire network at point of entry.
Firstly, the GuardianBox provides your
network with a hardened commercial grade Linux-based firewall –
a technology the company is happy to report has had no known
breaches since the product was launched.
Secondly, the product includes a web cache
that provides a far more sophisticated service than most regular
proxy servers. Like a proxy server, the GuardianBox will store a
copy of any web page recently visited. If that page is visited
again, instead of automatically serving the stored copy as with
many proxy servers, a check will be made to determine whether
that page has been updated since the last download. If not, the
page will be served from the web cache rather than downloaded
from the remote server. This method ensures that the demand on
bandwidth is reduced whilst users are still guaranteed access
the most up to date information available.
Thirdly, using the GuardianBox is comparable
to enforcing an automatic ‘responsible use’ policy for your
business as it allows you to control the type of content
downloaded to your business. As this is an issue that is now
being taken seriously across the EU it is becoming increasingly
important for companies to protect themselves from the potential
legal difficulties that can arise from employee content
downloads that become the responsibility of the business.
This is particularly important for
educational establishments where child protection is vital and
the ability to prevent access to chat rooms is highly desirable.
Fourthly, GuardianBox is has sophisticated
frontline anti-virus technology as standard. The GuardianBox
scans every inbound email twice using two different scanning
engines and definition files. This gives you twice the
protection in one unit.
The GuardianBox is a
preconfigured “fit and forget” device making it quick and easy
for non-technical users to install and operate. More technically
minded administrators will be pleased to know that by mid-2004,
a new web-based user control panel will be available allowing
configuration settings to be tweaked to your heart’s content.
When this new feature goes live, configuration settings will be
automatically backed up on a remote server to prevent there loss
in the event of problems occurring onsite at the business end.
