comment Alternative approaches to using DMZ for securing communication to and from external web server outside firewall
Devices in field will be pushing data to server. The external piece in this equation is to act as an intermediary without directly exposing internal pieces. Definitely don't want the external system to go down, but it would be the pawn. The truth of the matter is, I am looking for a way to get a secure channel between the external server and the internal network. The internal network is what I don't want compromised. How could this be done without a DMZ?

According to your response, I am to take it that protocol filtering is not sufficient, and, thus, the need of an IPS. My lack of knowledge is preventing my ability to ask the right questions. Is the DMZ the best and only approach? Can you give me some other terms or topics that could help me in my research?

The data is not sensitive, but that is not to say that we want any of it exposed. The only possible value of interest might be a user name. Availability should be high as the intent of the external web server would be to provide as the intermediary for communication with mobile units. The flow of information mostly should be from the mobile device to external server to internal server. Cost is a huge factor, and the intent would be to try to work within current means, in which, the only addition to the equation would be the new web server.

what I meant regarding the 500 page PDF was in lieu of a response like, "here's link, now go read it."
