10 IT Security Companies worth Watching
Network World, long one of our favorite magazines / sites for all things network and security related, has a 5-page piece on a few of the many interesting computer security companies.
Each company tries to tackle different challenges many of us face in computer and network security. All-in-all it's an interesting read, but given the nature of Network World, it's really aimed at enterprise security and not so much at the average consumer / home PC user.
An interesting read no less.
