Paul Grosse at workIf you have looked at my home page (as opposed to the Index), you will know that I write for a living and that one of the things I do is review Internet Security products. I have been doing this for over six years now. I currently write for PC Plus magazine, published by Future, and Secure Computing Magazine which is published internationally by West Coast Publishing Limited although I used to write for ComputerWire in the UK and Meta Group in the US on Data Security Tools Bulletin.

The ComputerWire articles were published on paper once a month and on the Internet weekly and are aimed at the decision making sector of the information security business. The articles are 3,000 to 4,000 words long with company profile and opinion in addition to the usual things that you would expect in a product review. I have written over 60 of these articles over the years and those here represent a cross-section of that work.

The Articles for Secure Computing Magazine are 1,000 word reviews appearing either on the Internet or in the magazine which is published monthly. Their website is at

Here are some of the ComputerWire articles - free for you to download and read although it must be pointed out that I retain in all respects the copyright on all of my work so if you want to do more than just read it yourself (such as make hard copies, extracts or handouts) then all you have to do is e-mail me so that we can come to a written agreement - I'm sure we can work something out.

If you would like me to do some writing for you then again, contact me via e-mail. I am also listed in the National Union of Journalists freeleance site so you know that I am the real thing. Incidentally, some companies that I review think that the company profiles that I write about them are so good that they lift the section from my article and put it in their own documentation or on their website without a by-line or paying me for the privilege. This has happened quite a few times now - must be good.
