Ever since my all-time favorite personal firewall – BlackICE – went away, I’ve been searching for product that could fill its shoes. I’m still searching…and it’s a pain. Thanks ISS!!
Anyway, I came across this “Firewall Challenge” site that compares the well-known and not so well-known personal firewall products, shows test results along with vendor responses, and gives a yay or nay on whether or not the product is recommended. Use your own judgment since reviews can be subjective and may not look at the whole picture (usability, pricing, general annoyances, etc.) but this is still a useful comparison.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
