Organizations have evolved to the stage where critical data management and protection are intimately linked to revenues. Error margins become smaller as information importance becomes greater. Security compromises cause considerable credibility loss and frustration. In this paper, we address both proactively and retrospectively security related problems for Unix-based systems. We have designed and built a software infrastructure, which handles security issues by autonomous intelligent agents automatically and dynamically with none or minimal service interruptions. Our software has been implemented and used for more than a year as part of the production environment of a mobile phone operator and Internet provider. The evaluation results over this period have shown that autonomous intelligent agents handling security can reduce dramatically downtime caused by security related incidents.
