    I do not have any personal experience with them, but you can do a search and might find some useful information/feedback regarding them.

    rfxnetworks design and update alot of the software many of the server administration companies here use. They are excellent at the work they do.

    I believe you can trust Ryan. He is very helpful even rendering unpaid help. And a lot of scripts he wrote are used widely for security.

    I strongly recommend them. Ryan and his team have contributed a lot to this community. Also check out rack911.com. They are also good.

    If i recall correctly, he got hacked and some of his clients user/passwords were stolen and in turn they got hacked too. This was a few months back, i wouldn't trust someone who keeps customer client login information in his email.

    I am not too sure about their server management, but they have created a great linux firewall hands down.

    If you don't know ryan wrote APF firewall and many other really helpful applications he has done this community a great service by giving us these tools for free. I have used him in the past and he has done a great job for me and is a really nice guy.

    Im not sorry.

    On a side note, anything is hackable, if you put enough time into it. You can only "increase" security so much... Dont look down on ryan because of the hack he had.

    I second thelinuxguy on this. Ryan is well qualified and we cannot hold the hack incident against their company. They are very good.

    He was keeping customer root passwords in clear text in his email box, you cannot be held accountable for that? That is ridiculous, its like a bank who locks the doors at night time, but turns off the security system and leaves the vault open to there customers security deposit boxes.

    I have used Ryan to setup a couple servers and also to fix a few tough problems that I couldn't resolve.
