Security review spotlight
By Patrick Love, Head of Fiduciary Support, Global Wealth Sol March 05 2007AEP Networksâ€™ SmartGate was the most unique solution we tested. This product is a secure authentication proxy that runs at the application level of the OSI model. The product is similar to a typical SSL VPN, but with added authentication components that make the userâ€™s authentication tunnel more secure.
By Dave Mitchell March 05 2007The sheer number and variety of external threats to network security are forcing administrators to focus primarily on their perimeter defences. As a result, internal security is often neglected and yet it's here that many of the biggest dangers lurk. Removable media is a classic example, as their use in a business environment is difficult to control and virtually impossible to monitor.
By Patrick Love, Head of Fiduciary Support, Global Wealth Sol March 05 2007SurfControl is, arguably, the granddaddy of the web content filtering class. Supplied as software, this product requires its own server platform running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and SQLServer. Its straightforward drag-and-drop rules engine makes policy creation easy. However, deployment, setup, and configuration were a bit more demanding than for similar products.
By Patrick Love, Head of Fiduciary Support, Global Wealth Sol March 05 2007MIMESweeper has been around for a long time. Available in four configurations to support up to a maximum of 3,000 users, the appliance has a moderate level of features. This makes it suitable for small and medium-sized organisations only.
