Getting the Finger…
Posted by BPuhl on January 6, 2008
Well, after a couple of years, and quite a bit of anticipation, I can verify – sort of personally – that there is actually real, live, honest to goodness code to defend security infrastructures worldwide.
In early November, Sanjay came to Redmond to demo version 1 of Gold Finger. As the fates would have it, I was on a business trip to London at the time, so I didn’t get a chance to see it personally, but having talked with several people that did see it I feel safe in saying that “it’s real”. 🙂 Since then, I’ve had an e-mail conversation with Sanjay, and hopefully will be able to see Gold Finger myself.
Since I didn’t see it myself, I can’t give a true review of it. I will say that some of my co-workers liked the reporting and analysis, but were concerned about the scalability/flexibility. Pretty standard for the v1 of anything actually.
Hopefully I’ll get to see it, and will post a review or info (if allowed).
