Round Ten: Best Multi-factor Solution

Passwords may be passe, but authentication remains a key element in ensuring a secure system, with multi-factor solutions demanded for sensitive information, for if the wrong people have access to your most valuable data, then all your spend elsewhere is simply by-passed.

Round Eleven: Best NAC Solution

Network Access Control (NAC) solutions are increasing in sophistication to unify endpoint technology, and while much focus is now on insider threats, the perimeter still needs to be defended by anti-virus, host intrusion, vulnerability assessment, authentication and network security enforcement. And although that approach may be seen as traditional, the options are keeping pace with rapid development of new threats.

Round Twelve: Best Risk/ Policy Management Solution


Most data breaches are not failures of technology, but of people, either because the correct policies were not in place, were not communicated or not followed. So what are the components of a policy that people will follow, that lets them do their job without compromising security at the least – and ideally, enhancing it? And what level of risk is acceptable for your business? Have you even calibrated your risk factors?
