IT heavyweights launch government data security initiative

Cisco, EMC and Microsoft have formed an alliance to supply multi-supplier architectures to help secure and share government data.

The firms' Secure Information Sharing Architecture

(SISA) initiative combines applications, information infrastructure and networking technologies to help protect organisations' existing IT investments.

They said the initiative is needed as governments now wanted to share and distribute more information from disparate IT infrastructures across their organisations, while at the same time strengthen their networks and data centres in the face of widening hacking and terrorist threats.

The three main players that form the SISA project are also working with other suppliers to deliver niche elements of data distribution and security required by governments.
