    Does anybody know what's happening with Sygate Personal Pro? It hasn't had any updates for a long time and their forums had a beta posted many months ago. I noticed they had an announcment today about their Enteprise product adding HIPs and anti-spyware capability. I don't care that much about another signature based spyware scanner, but the HIPs is nice. I'm wondering if any of this will make it's way into their consumer/small business targeted products.

    Also, has anybody tried Eeye's Blink? This is a pretty interesting product because it combines Eeye's excellent security scanner into the client. I tried the download and it looks like it can perform as a standalone product or as a managed client. Here is a link to the feature set:

    It's $99 dollars, so it's not exactly cheap, but it does provide a lot of functionality. Nobody elses product has Eeye's experience with vunerability scanning.

    Thoughts....

    I was wondering the exact same thing about Sygate myself about a month ago. I notice that the beta doesn't seem to be updated and expires after a short time. Sygate seems to have abandoned the home market for some reason. Kinda sad, as it was basically a good firewall and with a little work and a few fixes, could have been great.
