SANS Best of 2017 Survey

In 2017, threats were advanced and vulnerabilities were disclosed at a record pace. The businesses and government agencies that avoided or minimized the damage done by advanced targeted threats used combinations of skilled staff, mature security processes and advanced security technology to be both effective and efficient at enabling business while dealing with real world threats.

Since 2013, SANS has been surveying users to give out the annual SANS "Best of" awards for the products and services that really worked for you during the previous year. We think it is important to celebrate cyber-security excellence and highlight proven processes and products so others can learn from the leaders.

In each area, if you used a product or service in 2017 that you think made a meaningful difference in your level of security select it from the list, or write in the name of a product or service if it doesn't appear in our list. If you didn't use any products in an area, or if nothing you used was really worthy, just select N/A or skip the question.

The Best of 2017 products will be announced at an evening event at the SANS 2018 Summit in Orlando, FL during the week of April 2nd, 2018
