Written by: Michael Shinn

As some users may have noticed we quietly added a new feature to Atomic Secured Linux (ASL), the Atomicorp Threat Intelligence system. Right now the TI is only applied to web events, but we will be rolling the TI into other services as well in the coming months, so the TI will be protecting other services such as mail, FTP, ssh and others. We’ll also be adding it into the ASL firewall so you can automatically blacklist IPs in the various TI databases as you see fit.

Fighting Spam with ASL

September 11, 2013

Written by: Scott Shinn

If spam were easy to stop, it would have been done already. The reality is: spam in all its various forms is a complex and myriad beast. It covers multiple services, with multiple technologies — just like any other kind of malicious activity. This means it can be an equally complicated problem to manage… so lets talk about how ASL can help manage spam originating from your system when it comes from a web application.
