How secure is your app server? Ask @stake.

While browsing Scott’s blog, I found this reference to a security study by @stake, comparing .NET 1.1 and IBM WebSphere, which I wasn’t aware of previously.

Looks pretty credible to me since @stake is well known and independent. So everyone out there thinking that MS isn’t for the enterprise since it’s not secure, read the study!

    In the end, everyone cites the studies which fit his/her ideology. There are no absolute criteria, either. The important thing is that people choose the right technology to get their job done at the lowest possible price. If .NET does the job (and saves some money over J2EE, maybe), then take .NET (and vice versa, of course).
