We’ve been running a Sunpoll on our corporate site last week, asking the following questions:
What’s your position on Desktop Firewalls on all your user’s workstations?
The results were as follows:
|WinXP SP2 is good enough for me|
|Already run a third party firewall on the desktop|
|Don’t have one, but want to/should have one|
|Don’t have one, not interested|
|Total: 1407 votes|
Note that we think that these results would bias toward IT managers, because a) the way the question was asked and b) because a lot of IT people come to our site. Again, without putting more science out there, it’s really more of a gimmick.
But that leads to the next question — what’s your favorite software firewall?
I got a list off of www.antionline.com and started culling it to represent current popular products:
- Sygate (recently acquired by Symantec)
- Zone Alarm
Let me know your thoughts.
