New 2008 Product Review Guide from Information Security Magazine

Information Security Magazine has just released the 2008 Product Review Guide which summons the year long reviews on 56 security products. presents the report as a best-buy guide

Specifically designed for information security managers tasked with evaluating and purchasing security hardware in 2009.

The topics which are covered represent almost a full sweep of the actual IT security technologies :  Application Security, Authentication, Configuration Management, Data Loss Prevention, Data Protection, Endpoint Security, Firewall, Identity Management, Incident Response, Compliance, Log Management, Mobile Security, Security Information/Event Management (Siem), Security Testing, Virtualization Security, Vpn, Web Security Gateway, Wireless Security.

In addition to these individual reviews, there are 2 comparative reviews :
Web application Firewall which presents :

  • Barracuda Networks’ Web Application Gateway (formerly NetContinuum)
  • Bee Ware’s iSentry
  • Breach Security’s WebDefend
  • Citrix’s Application Firewall
  • F5 Networks’ Big-IP 8800 Application Security Manager;
  • Imperva’s SecureSphere Web Application Firewall.

IT GRC Solutions which presents :

  • Archer Technologies’ SmartSuite Framework
  • Symantec’s Control Compliance Suite 8.60 and Modulo’s Risk Manager

I just wish ArcSight was included in the SIEM section or even better, a comparative SIEM review among :ArcSight, Novell, RSA. Now that would be useful !
