Hi again,

Sorry but my paragraph

But all this tools lack enterprise type requirements (user roles, auditing,
hierarchical environments, etc) and lack a powerful policy or rule
management system

Should have been

But all this tools lack enterprise type requirements like user roles,
auditing, hierarchical environments, etc and lack a powerful policy or rule
management system

The () was misplaced and the meaning could be miss understood

I didn't intend to state they lack enterprise features, nor that they are
not used in enterprise, but that they lack those specific enterprise

Hope this clarifies. Sorry for the misunderstanding
