How true. But there are limits. As you may know, in the US
and the UK many IT companies as well as ISP's and Telecoms
are laying off the security guys at the moment to trim their
budgets. I personally believe this practice to trim budgets
is a huge mistake form a management point of view. But that
seems to be a trend presently, none the less. In fact CNN did
a report on this just a couple of days ago.

there are quite a number of Free IPSEC software programs such as
FreeSwan which work very well and not that hard to implement.
Yeah Freeswan works ok, but I wouldn't say well. It is too easy to hack.
We use elliptical curve Encapsulation Encryption as many western Govmts.
require that level of encryption on IP's. As I was one of the original
developers (Several years ago now) on ECEE it is a snap for me or my
guys to implement it. But we just don't have enough trained staff to
do the demand presently.
