At Gossamer, your website is hosted on a rock solid UNIX system using Apache, the Internets’ leading web server. The strength of UNIX, is in that security is built-in, rather than added on as with the Microsoft series of operating systems. UNIX’s open source policy ensures that many more people “in the know” have a strong say in the UNIX code. The result is an operating system devoid of the constant attacks that the Microsoft series of operating system is forced to respond to. Many of the methods available for attacking Microsoft products, simply do not exist for UNIX.
