Goodbye CSA

Cisco recently announced the End of Life for Cisco Security Agent (CSA). CSA was the first security product that I had the primary responsibility of evaluating. This was just after Cisco acquired the product from Okena in 2003.

I really believed in the idea that you could let the agent learn what is "normal" and systematically block everything else. Although I was never able to get it to work as I thought it should, I heard many times that it did meet the needs of others.

This marks both the end of CSA and the end of my first security product evaluation.
