10 Security Vendors You've Never Heard Of

Okay, quiz time. Have you heard of RSA Security? If you answered yes, give yourself a point. Heard of ISS? If yes, give yourself two points. Heard of Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT)? If you answered "Yes, but I wish I hadn't," give yourself two aspirin and a CISSP certification.

The security industry is teeming with all manner of technology vendors, ranging from wise old elephants like Aventail Corp. and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP) to the upstart cheetahs and jaguars like Sourcefire Inc. (Nasdaq: FIRE) and e-Security Inc. If you've done any sort of RFI lately, you've probably heard more prospective names than an expectant Angelina Jolie.

Still, unless you have even less of a life than we do (and that would be truly remarkable), we're betting that you haven't heard 'em all yet. In fact, we've culled 10 that probably aren't even on your radar screen but are interesting enough to merit more than a blip.

Take a gander at our list and see how it stacks up with yours. And if you know vendors that should be on this list but aren't, drop us a line at [email protected]. If you can stump us with a security vendor we've never heard of, we'll give you a free cookie.
