Ford signs ISS for three-year, multimillion dollar deal

Ford has awarded security provider Internet Security Systems a three-year, multimillion-dollar contract to protect the carmaker's entire global IT infrastructure.

Ford will deploy ISS's RealSecure Protection Platform across its entire enterprise. ISS will also provide around-the-clock security services. The ISS's platform centrally manages security across multiple locations and network segments, including wireless networks, branch offices and mobile workers.

RealSecure protects enterprises against constantly evolving online threats, merging intrusion detection and response, vulnerability assessment and security data collection and analysis into one centrally managed platform that helps companies save money.

"This defence-in-depth strategy is paramount in today's online environment of proliferating threats that reach every point of compromise in an organisation, from the network and server all the way to the desktop," said ISS chief executive officer Tom Noonan.
