Internet Security Systems has closed its X-Force threat analysis service centre in Reading.

The entire UK team has been laid off, and research is moving to the company’s Atlanta headquarters. X-Force employees in Australia have also been given notice.

XFTAS is a subscription service that feeds a stream of real-time information on security threats and vulnerabilities as they emerge around the world.

“The competitive climate for protection systems today requires a platform focus, shifting away from the older strategy of providing more ‘point’ solutions focused on specific niches in the protection market,” according to an ISS press release, which said the cuts were merely part of a reorganisation and would not affect the overall effectiveness of the service.
