Road warriors get new security shield

IBM last week launched a wireless security software and services package aimed at firms looking to transfer corporate data from wired networks to mobile devices.

The package extends the functions of Tivoli Risk Manager so it can now monitor wireless networks for security weaknesses and signs of attack. It also monitors firewalls, servers and intrusion-detection systems. All information is sent to a single point for administrators to view.

IBM has also included secure-access management software for mobile transactions in the latest version of its Tivoli Policy Director. This will support single-sign on and authorisation for mobile transactions and applications accessed through WAP and I-mode devices.
