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.
