Security: Enterprise Resource Protection
Winner Sanctum Inc. AppScan 2.5
Finalists InfoExpress Inc. CyberGatekeeper Suite 1.0
NFR Security Inc. NFR Network Intrusion Detection-200 1.1
Few issues are as important or as fraught with uncertainty as security, especially when it comes to securing the vital back-end resources that are at the core of a companys enterprise systems.
Among the many products evaluated by the judges were applications for detecting security problems, for managing security resources and for preventing security problems before they happen.
Finalist CyberGatekeeper Suite, from InfoExpress, uses a client/server model to make sure that systems accessing a corporate network meet all the security policies on that network, such as requiring specific anti-virus or personal firewalls. The other finalist—NFR Securitys NID-200—is a powerful network appliance that provides comprehensive intrusion detection for large and fast corporate networks. Our category winner, Sanctums AppScan, was the judges choice for its unique approach in scanning Web applications for possible security problems. By providing a tool to help Web application developers find holes in their code before it goes live, AppScan goes a long way toward stopping one of the main causes of security problems before they happen.
