Selecting the 2008 Readers' Choice Awards
Information Security and SearchSecurity.com presented more than 1,600 readers with some 360 security products, divided into 18 categories. Three categories which failed to draw sufficient reader response are covered in market articles.

Respondents were asked to rate each product based on criteria specific to each category. For each criteria, respondents scored the product on a scale of one (poor) to five (excellent). In addition, each criteria was given a weighted percentage to reflect its importance in that category.

Winners were based on the cumulative weighted responses for each product category criteria. Editors arrived at a product's overall score by calculating the average score it received for each criteria, applying the weighted percentage and adding the adjusted scores. Emerging Technologies awards were determined by Information Security and SearchSecurity.com editors.
