WEBSITE CONTENT WRITING SAMPLES
The following pages are samples of web page content written for Lockdown Networks, a Seattle-based high-tech company specializing in network security appliances and software. In December, 2004, I was hired by The Creative Group, a Seattle division of Robert Half International, to write new content for Lockdown Network's web pages. In a four-week period, I produced about twenty pages of web content, which was added to the web site in January, 2005.
As of 2008, Lockdown Networks has ceased operations and closed their web site.

"ABOUT US" PAGE
About Lockdown Networks
Lockdown Networks, Inc. is the leader in next-generation appliance-based vulnerability management for securing wired and wireless enterprise networks. Lockdown Networks provides a unique implementation of proactive vulnerability management appliances that continuously monitor your corporate network. Our appliances audit, prioritize, remediate, report, and eliminate network security vulnerabilities (e.g. misconfigurations, poor policy compliance, user administration errors, and vulnerabilities caused by software patches/updates). Lockdown technology allows organizations to dramatically reduce the risk of outside attacks and to track real-time information on their network security health.
Network Security Challenges
In a time when business networks must be protected 24/7/365, most companies still take a reactive approach to network security. That is, they try to protect the known vulnerabilities of their networks, using firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and anti-virus programs. But hackers and digital criminals are experts at finding the unknown vulnerabilities in a network. Every day, they come up with new ways to get past the firewalls, dodge the intrusion detection systems, and access the private information they wish to exploit. Or they create even more sophisticated and destructive viruses to outwit the latest anti-virus software.
According to data from the Computer Security Institute (CSI), 94% of all exploited networks have deployed some and/or all of the latest security technologies. Clearly, firewalls, anti-virus programs, and other security devices are only part of the solution.
At Lockdown Networks, we specialize in providing proactive network security. Our policy of vulnerability assessment and management is now considered best-practice for enterprises that require their valuable digital assets to be secured. According to Mark Nicolett, Vice President of Gartner Research, "Enterprises that implement a vulnerability management process will experience 90 percent fewer successful attacks than those that make an equal investment only in intrusion detection systems."
Our appliance-based solutions continuously audit your network to identify and eliminate vulnerabilities, keeping your data safe and secure. In addition, our appliances also monitor your network as needed for compliance with HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, and FISMA regulations. Lockdown Networks technology is currently serving clients in multiple markets, including retail, education, healthcare, financial, and federal, state, and local governments.

Lockdown Operations Center
LOC is a dedicated team of vulnerability engineers who identify new vulnerabilities and exploits to create LOCsets. The Lockdown Networks solution involves updating your subscribed Lockdown appliances with the latest LOCsets (vulnerability tests and hacker signatures) at an on-going basis. This process happens automatically and requires no intervention from your IT staff. No longer do they have to constantly monitor vendor websites for the latest problems. The LOC executes the latest audits, and alerts your organization of any new weaknesses found. A full year of service (LOCsets, vulnerability audit tools, system updates, etc) is automatically included in the initial price or extended maintenance service with Lockdown Networks.
With the rapid discovery of new vulnerabilities and exploits, regular audits are not enough to provide adequate protection for your network. Lockdown appliances automatically update every 12 hours to add new LOCsets and available software upgrades. Approximately 5-25 unique vulnerabilities are added each week to Lockdown Networks’ risk management database.
