    We have tested Sygate and it worked wonderfully. Many options priced right.

    Take a look at it.

    Greetings Keith,

    We have a current project, awaiting funding, that would do almost
    exactly what you are looking to do with the ZoneAlarm Integrity
    client/sever product.

    While the Integrity product does require a master server that the
    clients routinely connect to, it allows for seamless non-intrusive
    security on the OS. The Integrity client runs as a process that they
    user (no matter their account privilege level) cannot adjust. So there
    is no chance that they will compromise themselves.

    The pricing we got for a 50 user rollout was about $3,700 with the
    2-year maintenance package. They were charging about $65.00/seat for
    both the client and the server.

    This may be a bit outside your budget, but our review found that it was
    the best solution for us. Being a small company it will be a real win
    for us.
