Best Computer Forensic Solution
Products in this category fall into two sub-categories: network and media. The network tools must be exclusively intended for forensic analysis of network events/data. If the product is a SIEM with forensic capabilities, it should be placed in the SIEM category. Media tools cover just about all other non-network forensic tools, including those tools that collect data from media over the network and live forensic tools. This also includes specialized forensic tools that are not intended to analyze network data.
Best Identity Management Solution
Products in this category address the identity management lifecycle in an enterprise environment, including password management, user provisioning and enterprise-access management.
Best NAC Solution
Protecting host-based computing platforms and network resources from threats brought in by employees, vendors, contractors and guests involves a numbers of solutions and policies. From anti-virus and firewalls to IDS/IPS solutions, the products in this category run the gamut. However, to control access to network resources at the endpoint, the tools companies often rely on are network access control (NAC) products. These solutions can be used to validate the existence of certain security measures and validate that they are properly configured and up to date. They also can validate the existence of current OS patches and can be used to manage the complexity associated with overseeing permissions and authorizations for various groups of users. Most will integrate with a common directory structure, some will provide local authentication capabilities, while others will match something on the endpoint – such as an agent or MAC address – to the authentication before allowing access to the protected network resources.
Best Web Content Management Solution
Products in this category provide web content filtering for laptops, desktops and, optionally, servers They may block or filter objectionable websites and content and – to update the vendor-provided data on which the solution is based – enlist blacklist, whitelist or both.
