Subject: Re: Firewall Statistics-Summary
Thanks you all who answered my question. I could not fine realyy any
statistics per platform and market tendencies. Here is a summary of the
answers I've received.
1. Good place to look for information on firwalls: www.icsa.net
2. The best selling firewall?: checkpoint. (could not find statistics per
platforms or tendencies nowadays)
Many think Eagle is the leader in NT market.
3. The best firewall? Each one has its own oppinion, but the most of the
people suggested these three as the most safe:
a) Firewall-1 : http://www.checkpoint.com
b) Eagle : http://www.raptor.com
c) Gauntlet : http://www.tis.com
4. If what you need is only browser and e-mail, you don't need a firewall
5. NT is not as safe as Unix.
6. Market-share is not a good parameter to choose a firewall. You need one
that meets your network security policy.
7. The most recent market survey of users was done by CSI and Zona. The top
firewalls reported in use were:
Check Point Firewall-1 18.89%
TIS Gauntlet 15.50%
Cisco PIX 12.83%
Raptor Eagle 8.72%
SCC Sidewinder 6.30%
