Interview with Terry Dickson, CEO and Co-Founder of Avinti
by Mirko Zorz - Friday, 14 October 2005.
Avinti employs the ability to stop something at the first instance and that's truly unique. Reports can be run, proof can be seen, management can be shown what's getting through and what it was trying to do within the virtual environment in a very detailed manner so you can breakdown the behavioral trace and it underscores the value of a layered security model because it can visually be identified.

What are Avinti's future plans? Any exciting new projects?

It is always dangerous to discuss future plans. The virtualization of this network edge component demonstrates a viable new architecture in security deployment. As the e-mail edge becomes more difficult to penetrate, based upon the deployment of this virtual-machine based security-criminals will turn to other avenues for penetration. As-such, it makes sense to anticipate the upcoming trends of attack, and ensure that appropriate protection is developed and deployed. The concept of virtual security will continue to grow and evolve, providing a new wave of protection previously unavailable.
