Open Source Projects

To help secure a clients network we utilized services that protect our users and allow us to monitor the use of Internet resources. We have attempted to use paid services and network appliances as well as Open Source solutions. We have utilized Windows as well as Unix-type operating systems. It is our opinion, open source solutions are of equal or better quality than many commercial and at least the cost is lower. We have found that open source is highly scalable an configurable. Our biggest concern with open source is the lack of documentation on some programs and that it does take more time to configure.
