Sonnenschein Nath strengthens software security

Chicago-based Sonnenschein, Nath & Rosenthal, LLP, has installed a preemptive protection platform provided by IBM's Internet Security Systems (ISS) division. The move will ensure the security of almost 3,000 devices on the firm's network. The proactive nature of IBM ISS guards businesses against susceptibility to online attacks instead of providing a solution after the damage is done. IBM ISS technologies implemented by Sonnenschein include IBM Internet Scanner®, the IBM Proventia® Network Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), IBM Proventia Network Multi-Function Security, and IBM RealSecure® Server Sensor. These technologies are centrally integrated by the IBM Proventia Management SiteProtector™ console, which helps simplify security processes and provides for complementary security technologies.

A major provider of integrated cost-recovery software, nQueue provides software-based information accountability solutions to help firms manage their digital transactions more efficiently.
