GNAT Box System Receives Laudable Reviews at Open Systems Security '97
The Affordable Firewall Solution Appeals to a Wide Audience

Orlando, Florida -- "Too good to be true!" "I don't believe it!" "This is exactly what we've been looking for!" Comments like these were typical of the reaction of those attending Open Systems Security '97 at the Walt Disney World Hilton in Orlando, Florida after viewing GTA's simple, powerful, and affordable IP network security system, known as GNAT Box.

Attendees visiting the vendor's showcase on March 17-18 were able to get a firsthand look at this compact, yet powerful security software. GTA's technical experts made themselves available over the two-day event to answer the public's questions. There was widespread interest from a whole range of industry representatives; large organizations seeking an inexpensive intranet firewall, small companies on a tight budget, contractors looking for a portable firewall, and managers of large unregistered IP address networks.

For those still skeptical, GTA representatives gave out free GNAT Box demonstration disks and user guides. Each recipient was encouraged to take it back to the office and have their technical staff test it and see the results for themselves. As one departing visitor remarked, "If this works only half as good as you say, I'll buy a whole truck load." Well, GTA better start buying a fleet of trucks
