IBM Releases Security Tool to Fight Off DOS Attacks, Worms

IBM has launched new software that will allow IT departments, telecom service providers and IT outsourcing companies to respond proactively to security threats like denial of service attacks and worms as they happen.

By integrating network, security, identity and systems management in a single, centralized interface, it enables organizations to respond immediately to security threats originating both outside and within the network.
