Managed Security

I am also working on managed security solutions for firewall monitoring for my company. We have a lackluster focus on anything security related. Having this monitoring will do a lot for our security infrastructure. I am looking at Symantec and Counterpane to provide the services for us. I am just now scoping the project and getting together a business case. People seem onboard which is good. We shall see how it progresses.

BI Update

Still working on Microsoft, Microstrategy, and Panorama tools. So far the Microsoft/Panorama stuff isn't going well. Microstrategy has very slow support (10 days to fix my last issue). I am on the fence about which one is a better selection. I do need to spend more time with the tools.

Networking tools

Just a update, I am looking at some networking tools from Packet Designs. Route Explorer, is a very neat tool we have a POC running in our networking team right now.
