We got a nice mention at the InfoSec Conference in Orlando by Matthew Luallen, president of consulting firm Sph3r3:

“The WiKiD Strong Authentication Server is a two-factor authentication server,” said Luallen, referencing ones he thought among the most useful . Among other great security tools there for the asking are SpamAssassin, which can identify spam, Splunk for log analysis, NTop for anomaly detection, TrueCrypt for encrypting data at rest, and the penetration-testing tool BackTrack. He said all are examples of useful security tools that companies should consider securing enterprise networks.
That's good company! We'll be sending Mathew the secret prize that everyone who mentions WiKID at a conference or in an article gets. It's very special and the only way to find out what it is is, of course, to mention WiKID (positively) in a speach or article.

I should mention a couple of things. He points out that some projects are abandoned. That is true, but not an issue for those backed by companies that make money off support or add-ons. He also points out that there is a chance that "easily available software" could have a back-door or virus in it. That is also true, but it is also true of commercial software. At WiKID, we control what code is added into the repository. Anyone can have access to the source code of the open source version, but not just anybody can add code to it.
