    But is ANYTHING truly secure? As long as there are computers, there will be ways to break into them. Always.

    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    Haha I have always been the one saying BlackIce was not secure. I myself switched over to ZoneAlarm after a while from BlackIce because of the security problem.

    Let me just say the only personal firewall I recommend is Sygate's. As I've said before you can test the ability of your firewall at Sygate's website www.sygate.com for holes or you can use Tom Liston's Outbound program at www.hackbusters.net for application testing.

    I've personally tested the 6 biggest personal firewalls and the only one that came out unscathed was Sygate's. In attacks and in application checking. It really works well.

    Most, unfortunately, crash open which in my pinion is NOT good.

    Um. . . . Did you test NeoWatch? I had it tested by a few hackers & they couldnt get through.

    Actually, no. But I did have other requirements for my tests. There had to be a way to remotely administer the policies, etc. etc. They had to have an enterprise management solution. Does Neowatch provide that?

    I'll certainly go look it up. Thanks.

    Right off the bat I see a problem with Neowatch. No application based policies that I see.

    Hey Rogue, have you run Outbound on that firewall? www.hackbusters.net

    Let me know the results, if you would be so kind.
