IBM Internet Security Systems Advances Its Product Portfolio

New Tools Slash Security Cost and Complexity for Business Sustainability

ATLANTA, GA - 24 Sep 2008: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today introduced new functionality across its security product portfolio to help clients simplify their security infrastructure and slash security costs. These new features are designed to help organizations reap more benefits from their security investments, which is increasingly vital for IT organizations to meet new demands.

Information Technology (IT) organizations have neither the time nor money to manage multitudes of disparate security point solutions, each intended to protect against a specific threat. This problem is compounded as organizations transition from physical to virtual IT environments, which introduces a multitude of new security and compliance risks. IBM Internet Security Systems radically reduces the cost and complexity of security and compliance by delivering products that are inherently designed to work together as an extensible platform, all managed through a single heterogeneous management console. The new product enhancements from IBM ISS are designed to continue this strategy of "strategic security simplification." Highlights of these major upgrades include:

"We are eager to get our hands on the Proventia Network Virtual Intrusion Prevention System (VIPS) Appliance from IBM Internet Security Systems," said Pat O'Day, Chief Technology Officer at BlueLock, LLC, a managed technology services provider that delivers infrastructure-as-a-service to global corporations. "The VIPS fits right into our virtual cloud computing strategy and will be a great opportunity for our clients that wish to significantly improve the security of their environments."

IBM is the world's leading provider of risk and security solutions. Clients around the world partner with IBM to help reduce the complexities of security and strategically manage risk. IBM's experience and range of risk and security solutions are unsurpassed -- from dedicated research, software, hardware, services and global business partner value -- helping clients secure business operations and implement company-wide, integrated risk management programs.
