SIA's new product awards

Tuesday, April 8, 2008
I have to admit I'm a little jaded toward these SIA-sponsored awards at ISC West. Sure, it's an honor to be judged the best product, but I swear that every booth I visited had one of those little clear glass awards, all smudged up with fingerprints. Did anybody not win an award this year?

Security on a Mac!

Friday, April 4, 2008
