Internet Security Systems (ISS) on Monday unveiled a new security appliance, the Proventia M30, that targets the mid-range market.

The new appliance combines intrusion prevention and detection features, a firewall, virtual private network (VPN) capabilities, and anti-virus defenses. In the second quarter, customers will be able to add and anti-spam and Web filtering functions to the appliance, said ISS.

Supporting up to 500 users, the M30 can be managed either locally or from a central console, and includes administrative features that allow managers to select only those features needed to flesh out a small- or mid-sized businesses security.

The Proventia M30 is available now at pricing starting at $3,495.

ISS was most recently in the news last week, when a vulnerability in its BlackICE firewall was quickly exploited by the Witty worm. The vulnerability, however, was not present in any of the company's Proventia appliances, ISS said then.ISS isn't the first security firm to target the mid-range market. Last week, Symantec announced a similar appliance, the 300 series of its Security Gateway, which will ship in late April at prices ranging from $417 to $759.
