The office’s productivity has also improved.One survey found that staff at the Sao Paulo office saw their productivity increase by an average of 9% in the new working environment (more on this below).In addition, because this kind of environment, technology environment and office management encourages employees to move office, so employees can work from home in the rush hour, so that each employee can save on average every week 4 hours of traffic jam.
Three-dimensional defense of subnet segment: the head office data center deploys double redundant PIX535 fire wall, divides the head office network into multiple isolation network segments: internal functional network, external network, INTERNET, etc.The isolation of firewall prevents security problems such as cross-network attack and internetwork interference. Meanwhile, the scope of virus infection can also be effectively controlled, which greatly improves the security of each network segment.The core switch of the business network USES two Catalyst6500 high-performance switches with IDS module to enhance security monitoring of the business network through IDS module.OA network is a key part of security and a major part of internal security risks. Therefore, OA network USES two Catalyst6500 high-performance switches with IDS and Firewall modules.The Firewall module enables security isolation between virtual lans, which is important for large OA networks.Guangdong development bank network system, including the head office data center and branch network, all need with the Internet, online banking, a shekel of silver coupon, and pedestrian liquidation, and other public information network interconnection, because these public information network is a completely open to the public information resources, so the network interface as the most vulnerable to hacking and require special safety control, provide reliable security.Therefore, Cisco has adopted the current advanced Cisco PIX firewall products and advanced and reliable firewall technology to provide reliable security protection for the entire network system.PIX of NAT (Network Address Translation) function for guangdong development bank Intranet Address Translation of each workstation provide dynamic or static gain legal external Address, such as well as to hide the internal Network, and can save the Address resource.In order to improve network reliability and eliminate single point of failure, cisco took measures to connect two PIX firewalls with a Failover cable to perform a two-machine thermal backup.Firewall as the only export bank internal network, with the Internet and other public information network interconnection security control, at the same time for each workstation to access external information network within the network address translation (NAT) function.The switch USES MAC address filtering for security control, allowing only specific hosts to enter the PIX.The router is connected through multiple wan ports and provides certain security control to prevent illegal access and operation.In order to strengthen the control and management of the whole network, deployment of the ACS and Cisco for guangdong development bank access control server and security Policy Manager (Cisco Secure Policy Manager), using CSPM powerful strategy management infrastructure, users can bank on the network security products for scalable, unified management.
Hierarchical integrated defense: cisco SAFE that successful security solution should adopt integrated protection on the network infrastructure, and not only consider some special safety equipment.As a result, cisco has integrated security capabilities into its various network products to ensure that the entire network is fully integrated and three-dimensional.Guangdong development bank has implemented such a three-dimensional integrated security defense.Take the guangdong development bank’s outreach network system, for example, which USES three layers of integrated security protection, including routers, firewalls and switches.1, the first layer security protection provided by the router to achieve router in Internet/extranet wan connection of public information network, such as DNS server with guangdong development bank, the WWW server and E-mail servers located in external PIX firewall, with these servers as part of the opening to the outside world, the ministry of internal and external users to provide the corresponding services, its itself also become a part of the public information network.These servers in order to provide effective security, prevent the outside of the user to the illegal operation of the server, the server, delete, modify, or the content, should be carried out to external access can strictly control.With the firewall function of Cisco router, the operation of external users on the servers can be restricted to prevent the servers from being damaged from the outside.2. The second layer of security protection is protected by PIX firewall, which completely separates the internal network of enterprises from the external network. PIX is the only outlet for the internal network subsystems.By using PIX firewall to isolate the internal and external network, the security of the internal network is further guaranteed.PIX provides a complete record of all access, including illegal intrusion attempts.PIX realized from the network layer to application layer security protection, can be based on packet source address, destination address, TCP port Numbers and packet length on the communication control, as a move method to access is prohibited.3, the third layer security protection provided by the LAN switches Catalyst 6500 core switches deployed IDS and firewall module, monitoring the safety of the complex intranets effectively, is the third barrier against external attacks to prevent, is a good method to prevent internal attacks.Another Catalyst series switches have MAC address filtering function, therefore can be defined according to the need to switch each port, only allow specific MAC address of the workstation through the specific port access, port to communicate with the connection PIX.Due to the uniqueness of the MAC address and not configured, this kind of control, in fact, from hardware to control a specific machine, compared with the IP address filtering, this protection has higher security.Through the above three layers of security protection, guangdong development bank network system to realize the reliable from link layer to application layer security control, have the effect to prevent illegal access external, has the very high security.Reading this wasn’t the first time I’ve paused to consider whether my heart’s and my people’s infatuation with autumn is not a worldly indulgence. The promise of the Kingdom is fullness of life, not pretty death. Halloween just means “the night before the Saints” and all the gruesomeness on display represents the demons coming out one last night before the Saints arrive and drive them all away. A Christian may secretly treasure the festival for that reason, but how can she join in when her place is not with the demons and decay, but with the Saints and salvation? Whence this covert delight in the season’s celebration of fear and death?
This past weekend at our diocese’s annual conference, we were privileged to enjoy a few of our most learned deacons’ reflections on scripture and how we approach it. Barbara Gauthier, whose gifts of learning and teaching inspire me to no end, explained how Soren Kierkegaard remarked that it was a fearful thing to be in a room alone with the New Testament. We ought to heed him because we too believe that the Holy Spirit of God is alive in every word of scripture. “Be careful with it.” She told us. “Handle it gingerly. Too often we try to stand above it, dissecting its words. But it’s actually the other way around. When our church ordains ministers, the Bible is actually placed over the ordinand’s head that it may dissect him with a sharp, double-edged sword, penetrating even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; judging the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12)”Now that’s scary. It’s that “other-way-round-ness” that entrances us about autumn and Halloween. Scripture speaks of two realities: a visible and an invisible one. We content ourselves to suppose the former directs the latter, but it’s disturbing to be reminded that it’s actually the other way around. I was a little unnerved to learn that we stand in our service at the Gospel reading, not out of some antiquated respect for an old book, but to acknowledge that Jesus is quite seriously in the room with us, speaking to us here and now through the gospel words and expecting us to act on them. The scriptures are alive with the voice of God and we never know which words the Holy Spirit will use to speak to us.
Maybe autumn is just that time when that unseen world is hardest to ignore. When the natural world begins to wither and die, we can see plainly that “the things that are seen are transient” (2 Cor. 4:18) and the unseen eternal things press themselves on our immanent awareness. As if that weren’t enough, the Christian understanding of the spirit world is not indifferent to us as individuals, no secret ritual will appease the Spirit to “haunt us no more.” We have to face the uncomfortable fact of a Spirit with a constant and unfading interest in our souls; a jealous God. The Romans used to fear Christians because they thought they drank blood and invoked a spirit to possess them. Perhaps they were not so far off. Whether the Holy Ghost is a happy thing or a fearful thing is not so easy to answer, though it undoubtedly discloses more about our state of mind than the nature of the Spirit. So many scary stories are simply tales of invisible worlds and rules breaking in on quotidian, modern lives and eclipsing them. In the ghost story, the characters must learn to leave behind their ordinary lives and learn to deal on another plane. Their untroubled friends and neighbors write them off as crazy. By the end they are always alone with the apparition. Is it not the same for us when we open our Bibles and pray? Perhaps the constant struggle to find time alone with God doesn’t only have to do with busy schedules or backsliding natures. Maybe sometimes we’re just a little scared.Ought we fear or love our God? The scriptures speak of both. Perhaps fear of the Lord and joy in the Lord are not so distinct as we might content ourselves with. The glorious and the ghastly are, at the end of the day, both incursions from the higher and greater, disrupting our everyday comforts and habits. Did you know that the English word “guest” and “ghost” derive from the same root? Pause and read these two homonyms out loud twenty or thirty times in a fluid rhythm.
