unique way to protect e-mail
systems and significantly adds to the benefits of the IBM eNetwork Firewall
Solution Pack.”


“Organizations no longer settle for point security solutions,” said Simon

comprehensive solutions that
bring together firewalls with e-mail and content security solutions. This
is what IBM’s solution pack
provides.”
