    Kadeem C., an IT Security Analyst at an energy/utilities company, says, "I really like the application scanning portion where it scans your current applications and any new applications that you add to the device to let you know if it is malicious."

    Oleg P., Senior Network/Security Engineer at Skywind Group, says, "The most impressive thing is the SSL VPN Portal."
