Firewalls and Security in Software as a Service

Tony Karrer

One of the interesting outcomes of my recent course - Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 For us to be successful doing this, we first need to make sure that the system will work with whatever firewall restrictions exist. Elluminate did not work through several firewalls, so we had to switch to WebEx. Do not believe any vendor claim that "it works through firewalls" because a firewall can be configured to stop anything it wants.

Whether you call it Learning 2.0, eLearning 2.0, If you’re not careful, you may end up accidentally leaking confidential and/or proprietary information out to the public. It’s very easy to find blog and wiki software to install behind-the-firewall, where your organization’s information will be safe. These may be open-source options, behind-the-firewall installations, or even protected/secure options for internet-based applications.
