More than 1,000 readers voted for the best security products in 19 categories, including five new award categories this year: "Cloud Security," "Data Loss Prevention," "Encryption," "Mobile Data Security" and "Unified Threat Management."
The issue also features an in-depth article by Dr. Anton Chuvakin, who discusses SIEM analytics and how to implement processes and best practices to take advantage of the security monitoring capabilities that make these tools effective. VMware's Martin Casado shares his first-hand account of the security foundation of software-defined networking and its implications for network virtualization.
