Throughout the day, SC Magazine will be announcing the finalists from each of its 32 award categories, covering the Reader Trust, Professional and Excellence sections.
Best Enterprise Firewall
Products in this category are organizational firewalls, not personal firewalls.

All products must have the ability to terminate network traffic based on the above filtering criteria.
