2/4/2003

Denver, CO — InFlow, Inc., a leading provider of managed web hosting and outsourced IT services, announced today the launch of a new packaged security solution, with discounted pricing offered until March 31. The pre-packaged solution provides a combination of managed firewall and intrusion protection services for companies looking to build defenses against viruses and other vulnerabilities.

“Companies are beginning to realize that keeping up-to-date on security patches, firewall upgrades and intrusion protection services is not ‘optional’ in these times,” says Scott Ray, Regional Vice President at Inflow. “Inflow’s managed firewall and intrusion protection package safeguards companies’ networks against unauthorized access and serious threats, for a cost-effective price.”

In response to the increasing prominence of hacking incidents, network attacks and viruses such as the recent “Slammer Worm” targeted at Microsoft SQL servers, Inflow is alerting companies to its security capabilities that can prevent virus attacks at the root level. Inflow’s solutions take proactive measures to halt compromising security violations before they start.

Inflow’s Managed Firewall and Intrusion Protection package is offered with Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS) and provides:

  • 9 firewall options
  • ISS’ X-ForceTM Managed Intrusion Protection Service
  • 24 x 7 network monitoring by dedicated security services staff
