ASTALAVISTA.NET: The World Leading IT Security Portal Celebrate 5-Year Anniversary

CHUR, Switzerland, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- - The success story behind the daily-updated security member portal Astalavista.net began in 2001. Now with around 17,000 members, the world's largest commercial security platform has developed into a central contact point for those interested in security matters. This year, Astalavista.net is celebrating its fifth year of existence.

Data inventories and IT structures belonging to companies and private persons are constantly exposed to attacks. That is why the ASTALAVISTA Group launched the Advanced Security Member Portal at http://www.astalavista.net/ in 2001. The initiators set themselves the goal of providing a sound, up-to-date news and information platform about security and hacking. Members were to have quick, easy and central access to all important information. In the first year alone, more than 5,000 members registered. The offering was continuously expanded, and the number of members grew steadily.

Networked know-how

Today, Astalavista.net has roughly 17,000 members. The community is made up of specialists in IT security, IT officers with international groups, administrators, private users and geeks. As members, they have access to an extensive directory of more than 8,700 files, a forum hosted by experts, online tools for encryption and decryption, hacking contests, a war games server, Bugtraq and Nanog mailing list archives, a U2U messenger and much more. High marks are given not only for the services but also for the ever-growing community: Members make contacts, share experiences and discuss hot topics. Even job postings have been added recently to the online community.

50% anniversary discount

Astalavista.net has come up with an especially attractive offer to mark its fifth anniversary: Until 31 July 2006, the company is offering up to a 50% discount on new memberships. And on top of that, new Lifetime Members can download the valuable ASTALAVISTA Security Toolbox DVD V3 for free. There's never been a better time to become an expert in security matters.
