Stinghorn released a tool for centralized information security management (OpenBSD based)

Contributed by grey on from the they're not selling OBSD-based baby mulching machines but hey dept.

Thanks to Markus Raipio for forwarding us a press release from his company Stinghorn which has a "tool for centralized information security management" based on OpenBSD. The complete press release on the product can be found: here.

As we've mentioned previously, we're always happy to give attention to businesses putting OpenBSD to use, not just for those sharing their experiences with it around their own business. Those offering commercial products, and commercial support around OpenBSD can have a lot to offer businesses regardless of how much they know about the underlying operating system.

    The saleman-speak on their site is so thick I cannot figure out what they are selling.

    Can someone translate ?

      Seriously, no where do they say exactly how this makes administration easier beyond a vague reference to GUI management. Tell me it can install, upgrade and maintain an Apache webserver. Tell me it can ease the configuration and replication of a Postgresql database. Tell me how it uses a gui to configure the PF firewall. DETAILS people we need details! The target audience of OpenBSD admins who this would appeal to most will almost certainly be put off by the lack of advertised features and the extensive mindless marketing speak.

        Ah, but the target audience is not an OpenBSD admin is it? It is the admin's manager, who will buy this and then expect the admin to work faster.

      I couldn't agree more. After half an hour on the stinghorn web I'm even more confused. I even read the admin guides and stuff. This product may be a great product but Stinghorn haven't got the slightes clue on how to convince possible customers of it. A few screenshots and a description of what it really can do would be great.

      Blah Blah Blah, where are the screenshoots of the GUI ? I want to see screenshoots, I want to test a trial version, I want to touch the GUI, how can this people let the world know about their benefits without it ? Regads.

      Pure marketing bullshit. I tried to find some real information about the product. Nothing. The pictures I have seen on every commercial firewall spam I have received and have read. Maybe they have used Metacortex ( for the management. -AC

    "Centralized management of information security services creates clear savings especially in installation and updating. All installations, updates and management can be done centrally from one single point."

    So centralized management cuts costs because all management is then centralized? Hmmm perhaps that's "Proof by Rephrasing" or "Proof by Repetition".
