Expose firewall protected web apps and web services to the INTERNET securely and cost-effectively

A lot of architects tackle the issue of exposing internal web services
and web applications to the Internet. How many times do you see a
requirement such as "the application should be accessible to users
behind the firewall (on the intranet) but also to users on the
Internet"?

Traditionally, architects had two choices - beg the network engineers
and managers to "poke holes" in the firewall (unlikely), buy an
expensive specialized firewall which takes a long time to acquire,
configure and put in place, or replicate the application server,
perhaps the database server (and more) to the DMZ or Internet
accessible network segment. This is very costly, error prone, a
security nightmare and very time consuming.

Enter SecureWithin! Bitkoo's revolutionary product that removes all
the headaches associated with exposing internal endpoints to the
Internet easily, securely and with no added hardware or even a need
for your own DMZ.
How does it work? As the name implies - a combination of two smart
gateways, an internal and an external. The internal establishes
communications with the external and creates a persistent SSL tunnel.
Thus working within the constraints of the firewall and within the
security policy and security best practices. The external gateway is
deployed either on your own DMZ or on Bitkoo's hosted DMZ service.
Internet clients access the external gateway which looks to clients
exactly like the internal web application, web service or any TCP or
UDP endpoint.

Sophisticated security algorithms are used by both gateways to make
sure only authorized users can see designated endpoints. The solution
is far superior to VPN. Why? Because the entire network isn't exposed
- only designated internal endpoints. Also, absolutely no client-side
software is required.
The system protects against denial of service attacks, it tracks
intrusion attempts and stops them cold, notifies administrators of
suspicious activity and MUCH MORE.

Bitkoo's patent-pending technology is battle proven and extremely easy
to use and administer. It scales to thousands of simultaneous users,
it handles voice over IP or streaming video with ease and most
importantly it is secure (within).

If you need to expose your Intranet based apps or services to the
Internet and want to shave off weeks of development, configuration and
tens of thousands of Dollars in cost, visit http://www.bitkoo.com

Some suggestions for using SecureWithin in your environment: Expose
internal Microsoft Sharepoint sites, FTP or SFTP servers, SSH, Telnet,
Windows Communications Foundation (WCF), .Net remoting applications,
existing DCOM applications and much more.

I have been developing web-based applications for around 3 years, first using ASP, and more recently, ASP.NET. I am starting to wonder if web applications are really the way forward for software. And by 'software' I mean applications, (eg. word, excel) not web sites (eg. amazon.com). I am starting to think, with the .NET framework being shipped with new operating systems, and freely available online, that a better way forward is...

I'm writing an article and I need your informed opinions, so I ask you this: 1. Doesn't the web-enabled app generally run slower for one reason or another? 2. Isn't the fact that application graphics must be limited, just proof of #1, especially with low bandwidth situations? 3. Aren't the web-enabled apps really less feature rich because the developer has to emulate the controls of a thick/fat client app, and sometimes you just can't...

Just when I say web services may be hyped, here comes a news report that says Swedish Referendum Results will be delivered in real time over the internet using Java web services.

I've got web services that work fine on a machine on our network, but not a single IIS box in our DMZ, neither 2003 or 2000.

Hi, I've a software in winforms who needs to read data from a webservice in Internet, but the mcafee antivirus or others, are asking for permissions to the user to allow the connection to internet. This is a problem, because the users of the software aren't computer engineers, they doesn't understand the questions of the firewalls, and they usually block the software. Is there any solution?

We want to use allready written C sharp programs for our asp.net applications. The idea is that we write a program ONCE and use this same EXACT logic for our internet apps. Everything will run on the same server but we will have two types of clients 1. web based, 2. intranet based. Is this possible? If so, what is it called in Microsoft speak? How to links would be appreciated. -- cheers, nuutuudnet
