This review of EnGarde Secure Linux is fairly positive, though the author notes that some of the security features centered around the e-commerce applications of the distribution are limited to a US audience.

"The security did appear to be high and the only methods of connecting to the machine are SSL and SSH and you are encouraged to set "strong" passwords for your user accounts. After logging on to the web interface you are logged off after 15 minutes of inactivity. EnGarde Secure Linux is a very powerful and secure Network, Internet and E-commerce server that seemed a bit out of place on my little home network but is definitely worth the $30 Guardian Digital charge for it. I would recommend it to anyone who this type of server."
