The amazing demo

Mark Crall being the modest person that he is, talks about his amazing demo.  The amazing thing about it was how calm he was during the whole thing.  The entire time he didn’t even flinch at all.

It was an amazing demo…both from a technical standpoint as well as a “man is that guy calm”.

Authanvil VM

Dana is talking now about AuthAnvil VM which is a dedicated Win2k3 standard in Virtual server at $100 a month, the tokens will still be sold by Dana for AuthAnvil… very kewl.  So if you don’t want to have the AuthAnvil on the same box (which may I say it’s a very lightweight system)


AuthAnvil Launch

Dana is up at the front of the full room talking about AuthAnvil and how it’s able  to protect web security on any of web site, company web, RWW or any other web.  1.5 supports VPN as well.

Lots of cool stuff he’s got for the small business space for better authentication and security.

(and yes, sorry Dana for being late to the presentation)


Dana has a ‘at the show special’ … so if you were not here.. you snooze… you lose.
