IBM has announced an integrated security package, FirstSecure, the first in a new line of three under the SecureWay name.
The other two will be based on existing products that will be re-branded to reflect IBM's new policy of reducing brands it operates. These packages will consist of IBM's existing host integration software, and its directory server software, and the total SecureWay package will form the basis of IBM's Secure Network Platform.
FirstSecure is based on IntraVerse technology from Dascom. It will comply with Intel's CDSA (Common Data Security Architecture), allowing it to interoperate with other vendors' security products.
Components include anti-virus software from Symantec, access control software from Dascom, and traffic control software, which includes MIMESweeper Email scanning software from Content Technologies and SurfinGate from Finjan, which checks ActiveX and Java applets.
The software will cost about #455,000 for 5,000 users.
Could be used for everything from search-and-rescue robots to wearable tech
