Are You Tired Of Not Getting What You Pay For Yet?

Look folks, I'm going to put it out there straight to you. If your security provider is not coming to you and discussing your security needs (without trying to sell you stuff), then you're security provider isn't worth the money you are paying him. You need a proactive security professional instead. Contact me at this page (, and let's get started on real security.

Network Assessment Tool

There are many things that I cover in a network assessment. Starting today, I have added a new tool for my customers. I'll be able to see what's going on, on the network, from a protocol/application standpoint, and deliver a report on it. I'm very pleased to offer this service to my customers. Contact me if you are interested.

Preparing Against Ransomware

I have partnered with a company that specializes in Disaster Recovery.  I know this guy well, and he offers a very affordable and very technically sound solution to prevent against ransomware, and any other type of data loss. It's important to keep your data intact. Email me at and I'll get you the details you need to make a good DR decision. I don't sell this solution, nor do I make any money off of it. But I do believe in what this solution does. And as a security professional, "availability" of data is important to me.  Don't be a victim against ransomware. Be prepared before it hits.

Home Project: Washer Pump

No one said working on a clothes washer was fun, but sometimes you have to fix things. After finding water on the floor of the utility area, I found this water pump cracked and needing replaced. A $30 fix. Not bad considering the alternatives.

SSL Decryption

Most NGFWs have the ability to do SSL decryption, and its a really good idea to do so.  Many attacks now come through encrypted packets, and they need to be inspected.  If you have the capability to do SSL decryption, you should be doing this.

Palo Alto Firewall: PA-200 Replacement

I went on-site to a consumer to replace a PA-200 that was having some issues. I got the software, global protect, and app and threats to the same version and then did a restore from a backup I had taken.  It's not a bad price process to go through.
