Beta Announce Mailing List – Charter v0.1

Objective

The primary objective of the Beta-Announce list is to provide the SecurityFocus community access to upcoming security tool and product beta trials. In the same vein it will provide access to tool authors and vendors to announce their beta programs and get valuable feedback from the community which will ultimately use and in some cases, buy, their offerings.

Background

There are an overwhelming number of security tools and products available today. Many, if not most, have limited beta trials because of lack of access to an informed, qualified community. By providing a list such as this we hope to help authors provide stronger offerings to the community and we hope to allow the community an opportunity to stay abreast of the most recent security technologies.

Appropriate content

Announcements of beta programs for security products or tools.

Inappropriate content

Announcements of anything else.
