I would like to ask that vendors speak up on the NT vs. UNIX Firewall
issue. Please answer with technical facts and not with canned
marketing replies which mumble about market_demands,
customer_preferences, or with obscure 'religious' justification.
Hopefully I've cc'd the correct spokesmen at the three major
companies off the top of my head, other spokesmen/people are
requested to reply to the list.
Raptor Eagle vs. Raptor Eagle NT
TIS Gauntlet vs. TIS Gauntlet NT
Checkpoint FW-1 vs. Checkpoint FW-1 NT
How do vendors position Firewall software when available on both NT
and UNIX platforms?
Are NT versions positioned primarily as Intranet firewalls, or as
primary corporate firewalls?
If so, is this because of newness of the operating system, or
decisions to provide reduced features on the NT platform?
Can your company state that your NT version is as secure as your
UNIX version, or does UNIX have additional security enhancements?
Can you state that your NT version has or will have all features
available on your UNIX version?
Thanks in advance,
