End of an era.

IBM has announced it is dropping the IBM Intenet Security Systems name and all the security divisions will now be under IBM Security Services (I guess they didn’t want to get rid of the ISS acronym) . X-Force will apparently be moved under IBM research and ISS will be moved under the same group as the Tivioli products. This is the offical end of an era. ISS was one of the first security companies and developed many innovative products and the X-Force was the top research group in the field.

IBM has continued the majority of the product lines and has maintained X-Force but it is not what it once was. This the trend was have seen over the years with the smaller innovative security companies being acquired by the larger players. We saw this with RSA and EMC, IBM and ISS, 3Com and TippingPoint now HP. It seems the only ones not acquired were Symantec and Mcafee who have been the acquirerers.

For IBM this change makes sense and most new it would come. Now all security products and services are now under a single organization. This will allow them th likely reduce cost and better cross sell their products.

Good bye ISS!

I now have available for download the Mcaffe and IBM/ISS Visio Stencils. You can find them on my download page. I hope to post more over the next few weeks. If you have some please send them to me.
