Internet Security Systems boosts portfolio

Internet Security Systems has added two new models to its Proventia line of intrusion prevention appliances, which include network spyware blocking and improved policy management.

The Proventia G400 and Proventia G2000 anti-spyware capabilities are in response to other providers starting to incorporate spyware security in their offerings, as spyware malware becomes an increasing problem for enterprises.

The G400 costs £20,550 and the more powerful G2000 costs £53,330.
