Use sftp instead of ftp. Use https when entering passwords. Use imap-ssl or pop-ssl instead of just imap or pop. All of these encrypting versions of services are available on Zoo. Also, the move away from shared networks towards switched networks will help a lot. Think about asking for a network upgrade away from shared ethernet for your department if security is a big deal to you. mga.
