Bronze Award:

Citrix Application Firewall (2007)

Citrix's Application Firewall models application behavior, then applies policy against the baseline; any application straying from the baseline is treated as malicious and blocked. In earning the bronze medal, the product scored well on preventing known attacks and vulnerabilities, as well as detecting and reporting them.

It also scored consistently well in support and installation, and most respondents in this category said they were satisfied with their investment ROI.

Citrix touts the product's ability to learn application behavior and generate policy recommendations. Citrix says it can be deployed as a standalone firewall or in tandem with the Citrix NetScaler Application Delivery System.
