Information Security Firewalls Market Report Part One: Market Overview and Technology Background
The firewall market is a mature and competitive segment of the information security market. With numerous vendors and firewalls in all price ranges choose from,

hardware firewalls  need to purchase the hardware and the cost could be significant depending on your requirements. We also opted to only select four vendors based on who we consider to be the market leaders, and compared them side by side. Though the number of criteria we put together to evaluate these products was extensive, there are additional criteria which we did not take into consideration. Using thousands of criteria would have made the evaluation take so long that the information in it could have become outdated by

IBM Firewall Discontinued


IBM plans to discontinue development and support of its AS/400 firewall and is referring existing customers to Axent, Checkpoint, and Cisco.

hardware firewalls  integrated security throughout the hardware and operating system, the AS/400 provides among the best rock solid host security in existence today. When examining the alternatives to the AS/400, depending on what kind of technology approach you want to take, IBM recommends Checkpoint/Nokia Firewall-1, a Stateful Packet Inspection firewall; Axent's Raptor firewall, a Proxy firewall; or the Cisco IOS firewall, a Network Embedded firewall. Today, Stateful Packet Inspection firewalls dominate the market. Read More

CheckPoint & Nokia Team Up to Unleash a Rockin' Security Appliance


In a partnership with Checkpoint, Nokia takes its Internet Appliance and throws in Firewall-1. The Nokia IP330, IP440, and IP650, the first highly-available firewall and VPN appliance line, is poised to wow the market with its all encompassing feature set.

With the Nokia IP series of Security Appliances, the operating system is built-in, and Firewall-1 and VPN-1 come pre-installed. What was formerly achieved through a costly set of stand-alone products from multiple vendors can now be achieved with a single device. This saves companies significant implementation costs. A common complaint that security Read More

7 Essential Steps to Security Risk Reduction


As management visionary and author Peter Drucker once said, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” No statement rings truer—especially when it comes to security risk reduction. By having an accurate depiction of your network, however, you can identify real-world security threats and learn how to evaluate your organization’s ability to respond to them. Find out how, with these seven essential steps.

InsideOut Firewall Reporter Unravels the Mysteries of Your Firewall Logs


The most important piece of hardware that protects your network from intruders, hackers, and outside traffic is your firewall. Firewalls process an enormous amount of data, that when converted to useful information, can tell you many things about the packets traveling in and out of your network.

QLogic vs. Emulex 4Gb Fibre Channel HBA: Performance in Windows Environment


Organizations need lower ownership costs for hardware. But that’s not all. They also need a protected infrastructure investment, and applications that perform the way they need them to, when they need them. To meet these demands, enterprise storage area network (SAN) users must deploy a scalable host bus adapter architecture that addresses cost, performance, backward compatibility, and—most importantly—future scalability.

The Advantages of Using Hardware-based TCP Fan-out for High-Performance Messaging


Multicast-based messaging systems are limited in use to point applications under very controlled conditions due to their tight coupling to the Layer 2 network, lack of management and control, and lack of robustness. This white paper explores the key disadvantages of multicast, and explains the benefits of a hardware-based solution with embedded support for point-to-point ‘unicast’ distribution and message routing.

Your Guide to OS Virtualization


Today’s information technology (IT) organizations are dealing with the consequences of exploding infrastructure complexity. At the root of the problem is uncontrolled server sprawl—servers provisioned to support a single application. Organizations that have implemented hardware virtualization have unwittingly created a new problem: operating system (OS) sprawl. IT organizations have to find ways to address this critical challenge—today.

While hardware remains a considerable cost component, software and management continue to be the largest cost considerations. The daily management and operations functions are daunting, and adding in business continuity requirements, the costs and complexity are overwhelming. Moreover, few tools provide the management and automation to ease the burden on IT departments. In order to Read More

How to Use Automation and Virtualization to Improve Service Levels of Your Applications


Across the globe, IT organizations are hindered by applications that were built in silos with tightly coupled dedicated hardware and software, resulting in systems which are too brittle to rapidly respond to new directives. The only way out is to create a more dynamic, real-time IT infrastructure—one that allows resources to be quickly repurposed to the most critical tasks.
