As is the case with all comparative reviews conducted by Network World and its testing partners, we attempted to identify all vendors that we believe offer products that fit the criteria for the review. We invited 13 vendors to submit their products for testing. While seven agreed to participate, Computer Associates, Enterasys Networks, nCircle, Niksun and Symantec declined. Additionally, ISS was invited to participate on its own but the company elected to be in the test via its partnership with Nokia.
