Garnering its second win for the second year in the Best Security Products category, NetIQ's Security Manager was judged by readers as the best product for protecting networks against intruders. As one reader noted, "There's no matching the quality of NetIQ."

Security Manager provides organizations with real-time monitoring, analysis, correlation, automated re-sponse, and reporting through a central security console and integrates and leverages security events from other security solutions operating in the enterprise. Security Manager also provides host-based intrusion detection to let administrators quickly detect and respond to security breaches and policy violations before your network experiences downtime, loss of confidential data, or potential data integrity compromises. The extensible, out-of-the-box security knowledge base provides a means to add information specific to your company's security needs so that you can maintain security best practices.
