IBM unveils wireless security services

IBM has introduced a range of services and software that aims to improve security in wireless networks.

The company's wireless security auditor tool is designed to help system administrators find access points and examine wireless configurations.

IBM has also released upgraded versions of its security packages, Tivoli Risk Manager and Tivoli Policy Director. Risk Manager now includes software for wireless network vulnerability management, while version 3.8 of Tivoli Policy Director allows single sign-on access to Web sites and authorisation for WAP and I-mode mobile devices.

Policy Director 3.8 also includes XML support for security incident reporting, increased scalability through architecture enhancements, and SSL programming interfaces.

IBM also announced the incorporation of a new embedded sub-system ThinkPad security technology into its line of NetVista desktops and ThinkPad Notebook computers. New IBM ThinkPad notebooks and NetVista desktops will feature a cryptographic microprocessor to allow PKI encryption.

The software and services are offered through IBM's Global Services divison.
