    Posted on May 5th, 2009 HandyAndy No comments

    Free is right within your budget during these tought times isn’t it?

    GFI has just released a freeware version of its award-winning vulnerability management software, GFI LANguard. This fully functional version for 5 IPs is available for free and the goal of this release is to give back something to GFI’s customers and to tangibly help SMBs maintain and improve their current levels of security, even more so when budgets are being cut and IT spending reduced. Partners are encouraged to offer the freeware version to their clients and use the opportunity to talk about security and educate customers that there is more to security than viruses and spam.

    Read more information about GFI LANguard and the FREE 5-IP version here.

  • SMB Nation East Breaks All Previous Records

    Posted on May 4th, 2009 HandyAndy No comments

    Well gang I just got back from attending SMB Nation East and I have to tell you, Harry belted one out of the park this year. In spite of the bad economy and the swine flu outbreak, official attendance was 310 beating every other year’s numbers. It was real obvious Harry was listening to the comments from the last couple of events where folks were calling the gatherings vendor fests, not this time! This was pure content, the speakers were not even allowed to make a small pitch or offer anything for sale during their presentations. Maybe the pendulum swung a little too far, but the audience was delighted. Pure academic content, and what better place to acquire it than in a college hall :>)

    I spent a good deal of time scooting around the show floor and the halls and everyone was making positive comments. About the only negatives I heard were about the conference being split between floors and a minor mix up with lunch being a few minutes late one day.

    I am betting after this showing that the Fall Conference in Las Vegas breaks records as well; I think he could see his first 1000+ conference between the word of mouth after this one and the venue for the next one, smart money is on Harry to break the 4 digit barrior.

    Keep up the Great Work Harry and Kudos to the Staff they did an outstanding job.

  • Return of the HA’s Blog

    Well it has been a lonely few weeks since the blog blew up and all the kings horses and all the kings men could not put it together again.

    As you may have noticed I started pulling posts out of my newsreader’s cache and putting them up on before I realized I they do not allow redirects to it. Well the plumbing is finally repaired and I will re-post the important pages here, over the next few weeks.

    Sorry all the old links will undoubtley be broken, but at least the important content will be back.
