Bob's company specializes in building inexpensive Linux-based Adaptive Firewalls with Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for mixed-OS networks. Their Cracker Trap (TM) Adaptive Firewall detects cracker attacks and probes automatically and lock them out (hopefully) permanently and before they can do any damage.
