IBM Looks to Clean Up the Inbox
IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) is offering to help you fight Internet bugs with its latest service offering.
The Armonk, N.Y.-based firm today unveiled a new managed security service designed to combat the threats posed by viruses, spam, and all the other unpleasant content that gets your network manager (and maybe even your corporate attorneys) in a sweat.
The E-mail Security Management Services employ technology from Messagelabs to scan and monitor both inbound and outbound email outside the customer network. IBM says that, in addition to anti-virus and anti-spam features, the service also offers email image filtering. This uses a technique called composition analysis to identify and stop unwanted images.
But IBM could have its work cut out in a busy market for managed security services. The move to provide managed services over network-based security platforms represents a major opportunity for telecom carriers at the moment, according to a recent Light Reading Insider (see Pipe Cleaners).
