We declined to participate in this test because we believe the NSS methodology is severely flawed. In fact, the FireEye product they used was not even fully functional, leveraged an old version of our software and didn’t have access to our threat intelligence (unlike our customers). We did participate in the BDS test in 2013 and at that time we also commented on the flaws of the testing methodology. In fact, we insisted that the only way to properly test was to run in a REAL environment. NSS declined to change their testing methodology so we declined to participate in the most recent test, results of which have been published today.

Mitt Romney New Hampshire primary win: Time to take him seriously - Ben Smith One of the great reactions to Romney, for instance, was a quote from Lucy Opal, an 84-year old Polish immigrant living in New Hampshire who told The Washington Post in August that Romney is “humanlike.” But Opal later told POLITICO’s Emily Schultheis that she hadn’t meant the quote to sound quite that way: She’d meant that Romney is “more human … than anybody else.” Continue Reading Chapter Formation PMI Chapter Formation Chapter Formation Summary Form Chapter Formation Application Chapter Reorganization Summary Form Chapter Reorganization Application Members interested in forming a new chapter must complete and submit a chapter formation application.

About - Pomona College In the desert landscape that was inland Southern California in 1887, it took audacity to imagine "a college in a garden." Yet far from the ivied halls of the Northeast, Pomona's founders envisioned "a college of the New England type," with small classes, close relationships between students and faculty, and a green jewel of a campus. From that beginning, Pomona has grown to be one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges. Located in Claremont, Calif., on a campus where ivy and palm trees coexist under habitually sunny skies, Pomona offers an environment for intellectual development and personal growth that is second to none. Today, Pomona offers its approximately 1,600 students--evenly divided between men and women--a comprehensive curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
