Open Source is increasingly the preferred approach to proprietary development models, and IT security is gradually shifting to embracing open source security solutions. As a development model, it promotes universal access via free license to a product's design or blueprint, and universal redistribution of that design or blueprint, including subsequent improvements to it by anyone.

However, when choosing between proprietary and open source security solutions, many organizations are misled by open source myths.

They often than not ask the wrong questions when evaluating their options and unnecessarily limit their IT solutions. Is it risky to trust mission-critical infrastructure to open source software? Why should we pay an open source vendor when open source is supposed to be free? Will a shift to open source add complexity to our IT infrastructure?

All these questions have come to makeup the Open Source Security Myths, and in this special report, we'd be concerned in dispelling the myths.

This whitepaper will explain and dispel, allowing IT decision makers to focus on more important organizational issues: return-on-investment, ease-of-use, agility, reliability, and control. Download the Free Whitepaper on "Open Source Security Myths Dispelled" now.
