“Recommended” in 2012


  • Multifactor authentication (Jan.) : Deepnet Security DualShield v5.2

    Verdict:This is a great offering with hard, soft and biometric authentication options. It’s easy to deploy and use.

  • Vulnerability assessment (Feb.) : GFI LanGuard 2011

    Verdict:Here’s another tool with a lot of impressive improvement and growth over the years.

  • Endpoint security (Aug.) : DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite

    Verdict:Very strong offering with a good DLP feature set.

  • Risk & policy management (June) : Tufin Security Suite

    Verdict:Very strong offering with all the bells and whistles that is well worth your inspection.

  • Digital forensic tools (May) : WetStone Technologies US-LATT

    Verdict:Excellent product for anyone in law enforcement and well worth considering in larger organizations that need to perform triage forensics.

  • Email/content management (Sept.) : Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway

    Verdict:This one defines what we mean by full featured.

  • Mobile device security (July) : M.A.D. Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security Server

    Verdict:Still one of our favorites, MAD really delivers.

  • UTM (March) : gateProtect GPZ 2500

    Verdict:This is at the higher end of the pricing spectrum, but has absolutely everything you would want in a UTM, making it well worth the price.

  • SIEM (April) : LogLogic MX

    Verdict:This one’s a bit of a dark horse in the SIEM race, coming from a log management legacy. Now, a first-rate SIEM product at a good price.

  • Application & database security (Nov.) : F5 Networks BIG-IP Application Security Manager

    Verdict:Great for larger enterprises, but the product might be overkill for a smaller business.

  • IdM, NAC & DLP (Oct.) : Fischer International Fischer Identity v5.0
