Why Choose Guardian Digital
Guardian Digital, the premier open source security
company, offers the
first secure, open source Internet infrastructure system. Based on
Guardian Digital's operating system platform, EnGarde, the company
provides customers with software and services addressing application
requirements including secure Internet connectivity, user privacy, Web
and email functions, and intrusion detection.
No longer can an organization operate on the Internet
regards to the security of their online presence. Guardian Digital
solutions, built with open source code, address business-critical
security requirements. Engineered to be secure, cost-effective, and
continually improved to proactively defend against cyber attacks,
companies can deploy Guardian Digital products with a higher level of
security than most proprietary systems at a fraction of the cost.
Key product features and benefits include:
- Ease of Use
The sophisticated yet easy to use Web administration
system provides a
consistent and reliable means of managing all standard tasks, including
- Reduced Start-Up Costs
The time and costs of start-up are drastically
reduced. Our typical user
gets started in less than half the time, uses fewer resources to
implement the system and in the end has more functionality.
- Reduced On-Going Costs
The consistency and reliability of the software
reduces the time and
expertise required to manage the system and associated upgrades and
Guardian Digital software is easily configured to
support a small office
with limited resources or one with thousands of users. Built on industry
standards, Guardian Digital products contain the reliability and
stability characteristics necessary for enterprise computing.
- 100% Open Source Software
Guardian Digital products are built using the open
model, combined with the security and Internet expertise of Guardian
Digital engineers. In a January 2002 report, Bloor Research found that
UNIX and Linux security are drastically different in one respect:
openness. Because Linux is based on open source code, a huge community
of developers closely scrutinizes Linux code, thus revealing any
code-related security issues.
- Engineered Security
Built with security integrated into its design rather
than bolted on
afterwards. Guardian Digital solutions are engineered with security as a
primary concern, providing that high degree of assurance required by
corporations operating on the Internet today.
- Global Presence
Guardian Digital partner network combines technology
customer support and enterprise-class services throughout the world.
Guardian Digital channel partners and resellers deliver skilled
integration and support expertise for all of Guardian Digital's products.
- Guardian Digital Expertise
Guardian Digital, the first full-service open source
has developed a revolutionary approach to standard Internet connectivity
solutions. The use of Open Source, specific concentration on security
from the inside out, as well as ease of use, combine to form a robust
and secure platform that provides a stable foundation on which to build
a corporate Internet presence.
