Last week's earthquake in Haiti reminds us all how fragile systems can be. Part of a complete Information Infrastructure is Information Security. Back in 2006, IBM [acquired Internet Security Services]. This week, IBM announces two sets of ISS Data Security Services: These services can include assessments of your current environment, running workshops to help gather requirements, help design security policies, and even follow through with implementation.
- Endpoint Data Protection
Here "endpoint" refers to laptops, desktops, PDAs and smart phones. Not surprisingly, more and more mobile employees are relying on data stored on these endpoint devices, and they need to be protected and secure. [Endpoint Data Protection services] includings software, consulting and implementation of a solution that fits your environment.
- Enterprise Content Protection
Here "enterprise content" refers to data that is stored centrally, such as a data center, and accessed over one or more networks. [Enterprise Content Protection services] will evaluate the data that is most sensitive, determine the various formats, identify risks, and provide guidance on how best to protect. Software is available to identify network exits and leakage points.
Both of these services include implementation of help desk support as well. To learn more, check out the ISS [Virtual Briefing Center].
