BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ — SECNAP(R) Network Security Corporation, a leading provider of network and email security solutions, today announced that an interview with its president and chief technology officer, Michael Scheidell, has appeared in the September/October issue of Hakin9 Magazine. A lifelong innovator, Scheidell founded SECNAP Network Security Corporation to protect client information assets from hackers and other cyberthreats by raising the standard for intrusion detection and prevention solutions. Three patents are pending for his award-winning IDS/IPS technology, and his email security gateway solutions have also won widespread recognition.

The Hakin9 Magazine interview explores a range of security issues and solutions, including the most effective strategy for improving security. "A good first step is to conduct an external penetration test, IT risk assessment or regulatory compliance audit — whatever applies to your environment," says Scheidell. "A review of the results will enable you to develop a sound action plan to address any vulnerabilities."

According to Scheidell, the element often missing from an organization's security program is simple awareness, especially at the end-user level. "Almost any employee can accidentally allow a virus into the system," says Scheidell. "Salespeople using wireless sites unwittingly open the door to hackers, and plugging into hotel or other remote networks can have the same inadvertent impact."

To a question about the company's self-defense, Scheidell replies, "Of course we eat our own dog food — it's gourmet! Our proprietary managed network solution is powered by our ground-breaking HackerTrap(TM) technology, which in turn leverages SNORT(R), the de facto standard among open-source tools." SECNAP is one of just 16 Certified Snort Integrators, including Sourcefire, Industrial Defender and VeriSign, who are licensed to distribute Snort rules in their commercial offerings.

Mr. Scheidell delivered the opening keynote address at the U. S. debut of the HackerHalted Conference in June, and is a 2008 recipient of the prestigious Shaping Information Security Award sponsored by Info Security Products Guide as well as the 2008 Technology Award sponsored by the South Florida Business Journal.

"Our clients consider us their best secret weapon," Scheidell explains. "We have a great team who consistently deliver superior results, and I'm proud of what we're doing to continually improve IT and data security for our clients."
