This article reports that the Internet Security Systems company has entered the security appliance market with the introduction of its Proventia family of network protection appliances, starting with the A series. These are an integral component of the company's enterprise security platform. Proventia appliances will feature unified, multi-function protection capabilities designed to identify and prevent all forms of attack with minimal user intervention. They are optimized for the most demanding network environments, yet are easy to deploy, easy to use and centrally managed, making them extremely cost-effective. The company claims network protection in a way that reduces the time and effort customers traditionally spend on acquisition and deployment of protection hardware and software.
