    II. Log file monitoring:

    AmNet Consulting will set up proprietary software on your machine, to monitor the critical system log files and e-mail an analysis of all pertinent information to our technicians at the end of each week.* This allows us to notify you of any critical hardware errors, recurring software problems, breach of security attempts, DoS violations, and much more.

    On Windows NT and Windows 2000 Servers, this entails monitoring the system's Event Log. On Linux systems this involves monitoring the system secure log and messages log.

    III. Firewall Administration:

    AmNet offers two types of firewall services: software- and hardware-based firewalls. Software firewalls can be installed on either Windows or Unix platforms. Several commercial applications are available for Windows NT and Windows 2000 systems,while Unix systems use such software packages as Ipchains and IPFW. An AmNet hardware firewall can be configured and implemented to protect your network from intruders, acting as either a bridge or a router, to protect your most vital systems.
    All AmNet firewalls are setup to our clients' specifications. If you require specific information, regarding which ports and services to allow or deny is required, AmNet consulting services are available to assist you.
    The AmNet firewall service can be easily combined with our log file monitoring services to provide statistics and reports on attempted intrusions.
    Simple rule changes, such as adding or removing a port, ip address, or service are part of our Firewall Rules Maintenance Service. More advanced work, such as open service/port consulting, custom routing applications, etc., will be charged hourly.

    IV. Vulnerability Assessments:

    A scan of your system's security by a third party can be very beneficial to your organization. Overlooking even the smallest operating-system vulnerability can allow intruders to infiltrate your system and cause irreversible damage.

Using this information, a security consultant can assist you in updating packages and securing all services on your system.
