InZero Network Protection

Definition: InZero Network Protection is a hardware security product that provides vigorous computer or network protection against unauthorized intrusions. The device is placed between a computer or network and the Internet (or other digital devices). The proprietary system is based upon read only memory (ROM). The device requires user authentication and that some application software be run from the InZero device itself.

Its Relevance: The product outlined above represents a new paradigm for network security. The product is only now coming into use in production environments. However, since critical code is only stored in Read Only Memory the possibility of unauthorized code being written to protected computer or network infrastructure is totally eliminated. Stated differently, if nodes on a network must access code in ROM to do their work, the applications remain constant an unalterable. This technology is represents a potential paradigm shift in computer security.
