: StormWatch 3.0"> Executive Summary: StormWatch 3.0
Okenas StormWatch upgrade provides kernel-level security protection for Windows- or Solaris-based servers and applications. This is definitely a product for administrators to investigate when they want to lock down custom applications exposed to the outside world or protect security-sensitive Windows desktops.
StormWatch is competitively priced on the server and, at $85 per machine on the desktop, quite a bit less expensive for workstations than we expected, considering its power. Although administrative complexity for kernel-level security products is high compared with other security products, kernel-level products prevent attacks that nothing else can block. (+) Kernel-level mandatory access security controls; easy-to-use security policy creation tools, plus a set of pre-built rules and security definitions; built-in firewall features; can be deployed to both servers and desktops. (-) Doesnt allow security exceptions to be created for particular users; lacks HTTP filtering features; cannot identify attacks by name; doesnt work on Linux. EVALUATION SHORT LIST
