HI,
I'M GOING TO BE CREATING AN ON-LINE COMPANY SELLING ITEMS VIA A DROPSHIPPER AND CONNECTING MY EBAY BUSINESS WITH THE AFORE MENTIONED. MY QUESTION IS THIS: SINCE MY NEW ON-LINE COMPANY WILL BE DEALING WITH CREDIT CARDS AND TOLL-FREE NUMBERS; UNLIKE THE PRESENT EBAY BUSINESS, WHAT DO PEOPLE RECOMMEND FOR SECURITY SOFTWARE? ONE PERSON'S ANSWER (OF WHOM I RESPECT) MENTIONED ZONE SOFTWARE. SO I'M CLOSE TO BUYING ZONE ALARM INTERNET SECURITY SUITE OR ZONE FOR SMALL BUSINESS. BUT I WAS LOOKING FOR A 2ND OPINION.
THANKS AHEAD OF TIME,
~BTOWNFOX

Both those should have trial versions which you can get one of and see what you think of it

You can crosscheck it by running online virus scans (google)

A good read on the subject is here.

A plus is to use a linux server for online buying. Linux is much easier to lockdown than a windows server. That is if you are going to have your own server. Many local ISP's have business website hosting for these kinds of businesses.

That's a good idea SRX660 but I don't think Linux is in the picture at this time. I'm not sure if you ever heard of it but the company is Auction Teacher. I could get more information on the underside but I'm going to be concentrating on creating sales and maintaining that flow. My main concern is that I'm going to be using a company "Merchant Solutions" for Credit Card information and since this is new to me, I try to make sure I cover all angles.

I'm going to check out that site you gave me SRX660, thanks for that. I'm not a developer. I was a Sr. QA Analyst afew years back and lost my job once Bush came into power and decided to outsource and let many of us Americans (as I'm sure you know) fall by the wayside. This is not the venue to comment, this is the future. A website that helps the fellow man and doesn't ask for any money. "Only in America." Of course as a consumer and grateful recipient to this cause, everyone knows you don't get something for nothing.
Back on track: I keep getting Panda Software emails; I use Norton now but I want to change to a more secure security so when customers give me their Credit Card Numbers, I'll feel safe knowing that the software I chose was the right one. Thanks, ~Scott

That was very intersting ... Thank you for that link. I was curious about how they keep it so secure and that sums it up very well.

I'm glad my question helped someone else as well. Meanwhile I'm checking out the best software for my situation. I wasn't clear (and I should have been), but I don't have nor will I have my own server. I just had a question on the best software security for my situation and my future customers security. Thanks. ~Fox
