Security Scoreboard Updated

FYI, Security Scoreboard aka “Yelp for Security Products” comes up with an update which makes it even more useful!

The following is reposted from their news blast:

Real-time Vendor News and Reviews - Vendor pages now feature real time news and analysis pulled from select credible sources. Security Scoreboard filters and sorts these results to bring you the most relevant links for each company.

User Link Submission - Users can now submit their own links to relevant online sources for inclusion in vendor listings.

Listing Competitors - Security Scoreboard now lists select competitors on vendor pages. This helps CISOs and CIOs quickly find the main players in a specific market segment such as, for example, firewall management tools or phone-based 2-factor authentication solutions.  <- HOT feature! [A.C.]

Comment Section - Visitors can now leave comments on any listing without filling out a review.

Sadly, there are still a few mistakes. For example, check out their SIEM listings: which ONE company has absolutely nothing to do with SIEM there?

I always recommend starting your security product research there, if you don’t know where to start.
