Protect and Disinfect with Opal Networks



Opal Network Architects was founded in 1997 by Robert Smith and Tony Allen. As network security specialists, they found an increasing number of companies blindly connecting to the Internet without adequate security. Even worse, they found that so called "Security Adminstrators" were not fulfilling their job descriptions. These companies often had several on duty security guards yet left their networks wide open to compromise. This corporate trend of not acknowledging the need for network security left Opal's founders with a specific goal. This goal is realized through Opal Networks To custom consulting engagements to properly assess and secure the clients network.
