IBM Introduces New Class of Network Security Appliance to Help Control Social Media and Web Browsing Risks
As employee access to the Web has become ubiquitous, enterprises are struggling with massive increases in malware as well as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), which can compromise proprietary data. Many of today's security solutions often offer limited visibility and control over network activity, which can put the company at risk.
To help clients proactively protect against evolving security threats, including those posed by social media sites and malicious websites, IBM recently announced a new class of network security appliance that delivers a more granular view of a company’s security posture and a simplified security management interface. This new next-generation intrusion prevention appliance helps clients address advanced attacks targeting their organization, providing visibility into exactly what applications are being used on the network, where users are going on the Web, with the ability to monitor and control this activity, which can result in improved security and reduced operational costs.
