enKoo's enKoo Remote Desktop and enKoo Remote Server are SSL VPNs for the SMB market.

nCipher's SecureDB database security solution adds support for IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server. Through its granular, column-level encryption, SecureDB encrypts only the necessary data, which minimizes network performance hits.

Average pricing for SecureDB is $50,000-$70,000.

PatchLink's PATCHLINK QUARANTINE, a remediation and network access control appliance, offers a "scan and block" technology that enables the protection of the corporate network from devices with noncompliant security configurations. The appliance assesses connecting devices against the organization's security policies and automatically updates the computer's status to meet minimum policy baselines. It only allows compliant devices to connect to the network.



PATCHLINK QUARANTINE starts at $1,499.
