Heh, thanks man. I had never known how much credence to give to
Gartner's statements, now I know that I can safely ignore their
Comparing IPsec and SSL is like comparing apples and gorillas: your
comparisons only work for non-carbon based lifeforms.
One is encrypting Data, the Other is encrypting the entire packet. SSL
is good for low security, but if you have a LAN that needs to be
locked down IPsec is the way to go. Some hardware firewalls, IPsec on
all the nics, encrypt the hdd's, put host based firewalls and a couple
of anti-(whatever) apps and you might even be close to HIPAA
