Ditto on that.  We hung an unpatched, protected-only-by-CSA Windows 2000
server box on the bid bad Internet, and never got hit once.  Had NUMEROUS
tries, but none successful.

Phil,

I at a previous employeer I did a deployment of Cisco Security Agent on
3000 workstations. It is a very good product, however it is not an easy
out of the box solution. If you want some more info email me offline.

Thanks,
Dennis

Hi,

A sys admin on campus asked for a recommendation for a good software
firewall for Windows servers.  They are looking for:

- Central Management... (It can be pushed by policy)
- GUI (Preferable although not required)
- Application as well as Network control...
- High reliability...
- Logging capability...
- Realtime monitoring

Has anyone bought and widely deployed software firewalls for Windows
servers?  Have any recommendations to share?

Thanks,

Phil
