Managed Service Providers who offer security services Security services are state institutions for the provision of intelligence, primarily of a strategic nature, but also including protective security intelligence.

According to Forrester Research, security appliances enjoy the lowest overall cost of ownership due to the availability of standard configurations and easy installation. They also address the security needs of a broad market, including small businesses and remote offices where little technical aptitude and much less security expertise is available. Security appliances are also attractive to high-end users who are serious about security and willing to purchase specialized devices to support that need.
"Intrusion detection is a fundamental information security technology necessary in securing today's ever changing e-business environments," added Steve Russ, Vice President of Market Strategy and Corporate Development for Internet Security Systems. "Our relationship with Nokia, and the resulting appliance solution, is a clear indication of our commitment to bring the benefits of intrusion detection- automatic attack recognition and response and overall enterprise threat management and protection- to an increasingly broad and demanding market."
