    How Traditional Firewalls Fail Today's Networks

    If your company has a traditional firewall, it is probably jeopardizing your security and costing you money. Why? Firewalls are an essential part of network security, but most are very limited. They can close unneeded ports, apply routing rules to packets and fend off denial-of-service attacks. But they can't look inside packets to detect malware, identify hacker activity or help you manage what end users are doing on the Internet.

    10 Sneaky Things a Spammer Will Do

    Most spammers are just sales people looking for an avenue to sell their products or services. Sending out email is cheap and believe it or not some people do respond to their spam advertisements. It only takes a few people to respond to a spam ad to make it profitable for the spammer—so the game is to reach as many people as possible with the spam message to increase the odds of finding a few respondents. With spammers using the "shotgun" approach to marketing (shoot at everything and you'll hit something) the increase in spam messages makes sense. Also, to improve their chances, spammers are constantly working to improve their effectiveness at getting past spam filters. Let's take a look at a few of the tricks that spammers use to improve their odds of reaching their target audience.
