Seeking Network Security Expert (patch management)

Our client is looking for people with deep expertise in computer network security, particularly patch management. We will pay you to participate in a brief interview with our client via telephone. You can participate even if you are working full-time for another firm.

You are particularly familiar with the major providers of network security products focused on patch management (Hercules from Citadel Security Software, BigFix Enterprise Suite, Ecora Patch Manager, PatchLink Update, etc.) You likely have significant experience providing network security for large-scale networks, e.g., as the CTO of a company. You must have installed at least one of these packages on a large-scale network, and we particularly value experience with the Citadel product from Hercules.

Our client is interested in knowing:
Service questions: What differentiates the major services? What is state-of-the-art today? What's on the drawing board? What new trends and technologies do you see?
Industry questions: How do the major vendors compare in their penetration of the different markets for network security? What are the drivers of growth, and the overall industry outlook? How are they responding to the challenges in the network security industry?

Qualifications: As an expert, you have at least seven years experience in the IT industry. You have a ?big picture? perspective on different firms in the space. Insight into both business and technology issues is helpful.
