The main objective of Firewall and/or Internet Security Software is to establish rules and measures to protect against attacks over the Internet. Subsequently, remote (home) users are using a variety of personal firewalls and/or software packages to counter this threat (i.e., LynkSys Firewall, Norton Internet Security Software, etc.).
Any Referenceusa access issue can be easily overcome by reconfiguring the device or software. Although ReferenceUSA and its staff are not qualified to troubleshoot and support remote (home) users’ personal firewalls and/or security software, most vendors of these devices/software packages offer technical support for customers.
If you are connected to the Internet via a cable modem with a personal firewall and/or Internet security software and are receiving the username/password challenge page from ReferenceUSA, reconfiguring device/software can possibly fix this issue. Please refer to the device/software users’ manual and/or the vendor for additional technical assistance.

What our customers are saying
We’ve had great success with the ReferenceUSA product, especially with our business students. It has a simple interface that provides a quick lookup or an in-depth screening mode that allows the user to locate a specific company or group of companies based on a wide variety of criteria. The information provided about corporate linkage to a parent and subsidiary is especially useful as is the rest of the information returned with the search results. We have come to rely heavily on ReferenceUSA as a first stop for much of our directory lookups.
ReferenceUSA is a robust tool that not only provides rich data but helps users better understand the information through its mapping and visualization features. Our library patrons use ReferenceUSA for competitive intelligence, marketing information as well as tracking and monitoring neighborhoods for potential trends in consumer purchase patterns. In addition to entrepreneurs, we see many job seeking and re-careering clients use the database to acquire deeper insight on the companies and industries that match their career interests. Similarly, patrons also search the database to identify the potential employers. ReferenceUSA is a central part of our business information offerings and a resource that continues to captivate staff and patrons alike.
