Some thoughts from the RSA Conference

I was at the RSA conference ( yesterday. After I finished up my meetings I wandered around the exhibition hall. There are over 330 companies with booths at the show which got me thinking about just how many products and companies there are in the security space.

With all these companies pushing what are sometimes very similar products, it can be hard to understand the differences between them. For instance I was talking with several UTM appliance providers and the list of features each of them were highlighting were almost identical across the board.

So what does this mean for Firewall Builder? Well, first of all it reminded me that there are a lot of products competing for our users attention, so it is critical that we do a good job making it clear both what Firewall Builder does as well as what it doesn't do. But, probably more importantly, it reinforced to me how important it is to stay focused on the problem that we are trying to solve.

Our mission is to make firewall management easier and more consistent across a wide range of firewall platforms. We want to do this in a way that scales both in terms of the number of firewalls that users can manage and also in terms of the number of users that need to manage those firewalls. I'm really excited about 2011 and the progress we are going to make towards these goals!

As always we want to hear from you. Do you think Firewall Builder's core mission is clear? What do you want to see in Firewall Builder in 2011?

Oh, yeah. Sometimes that's truly hard to understand the difference if market is full of products and sometimes they have the same crappy quality. For me it was the reason to choose Thriving writer, because among this crappy sources they're only one who's absolutely brilliant.
