This is a place for us to start seriously talking about vendors. Who's great, who's not, what's it cost, how does it relate to their competitors and would we buy it? A place to talk about snakeoil, and brilliant products alike. Marketing fluff is forbidden.

WAF vendors

We were debating WAF's at Bluehat and I mentioned a lack of contribution from them on sla.ckers. So here's your chance vendors, lets see some communication, some demo pages, some filter source. Anything!

People don't want to do anything these days without getting paid. This site is a place where people can smell sales bullshit a mile away. Very few people involved with marketing WAF stuff are security professionals except a small group at each company.

All they want is a PO and they will tell you anything to get it.

Nah that's not true there are plenty of people here that will test open source stuff for free. Commercial products maybe that's different. I totally agree with you about the marketing, more snake oil than decent protection. If it wasn't then they would be happy for us to test them.
