Really, Commercial Open Source software isabout transparency at the end of the day.
That transparency improves the quality ofthe software which actually ends up improving the security.
This is good because developers,businesses, IT users can actually go in and look at the code, make sure there's nothingin there they don't want to pay for, make sure there aren't any skeleton keys or backdoors as they usually call.
And make sure that patches or upgrades thatare supposed to fix the problem actually fix the problem.
To compare community driven opensource with a commercial open source with community, it's just a development community,they may or may not be wanting to invest time and what you're wanting because you've customfit something to your solutions or your infrastructure.
And with a commercial vendor behind this youactually get the benefit of their value add, their support, and their products to ensurethat the software is ready for market.
We actually did a survey with the Ponemon Institute and one of the things we found was that over half of the IT professionals thatresponded, thought that commercial open source led to better security for applications andit reduced the risks associating with those applications.
And overall it just improvedthe integrity and trust worthiness of those applications.
Commercial vendor they realget the opportunity to take that community transparency that's demanded by an open sourceproduct and layer on additional value through their means, and they can make sure that issuesare handled immediately, quickly.
So I've talked enough today about commercial opensource.
