Tactics For Understanding Security Vendor Products

  1. Conferences - Which conferences that we attended this year provided the best insights into the security vendor landscape? What types of information can you collect by visiting trade show booths?
  2. Webcasts - There are many choices for webcasts, what are the different types and which ones are most beneficial? (e.g. Security vendor finds a practitioner to present, product and feature announcement webinars, straight up sales-focused webinars).
  3. Analysts - What information is best collected from analysts?
  4. Peers - What types of questions should you ask for a peer review and how do you select a peer?
  5. Other resources - Owler is great for keeping track of product announcements, as well as a few select blogs about the industry. Independent reviews are rare but very valuable.
