Pen Testing Security Vendors Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Pen Testing Security Vendors
Derbycon 2012

Vendors are a necessary evil of the security industry. They make their money taking ours and, if we're lucky, they give us something useful in return. If we're unlucky, we wind up having to manage security incidents while simultaneously managing their broken technology. How can we tilt the odds in our favor? How can we identify which vendors are worth considering? We need detailed analytics. We need a way to independently compare vendors to one another using unambiguous metrics. This presentation compares vendors in many different categories and introduces a methodology for others to use. Ever had trouble making a decision about which vendor to pick when they all look very similar? This presentation will show you a way.
