Organizations with more than a handful of laptop-equipped workers will find the Zone Labs Integrity client firewall system an important way to keep corporate assets secure. Longer term, we think vendors in this new market segment will need to combine firewall, intrusion detection, anti-virus and privacy features into one centrally managed package to be competitive, but, for now, Integrity does well.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Integrity provides a quick way to protect workers connecting at home from network attacks.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Central management of complex and risky settings such as security settings lowers costs, raises overall security and allows for quick response when new attacks emerge.

PROS // Simple, silent client installation; centralized security policy creation and reporting; top-notch firewall technology.

CONS // No intrusion detection, anti-virus or privacy protection features; e-mail attachment protection weak; doesnt support Exchange or Notes mail server protocols.
