St. Bernard software teams with Internet Security Systems.

St. Bernard Software Inc., a global provider of security solutions that protect against data loss, system threats and Internet abuse, recently announced an agreement with Internet Security Systems (Nasdaq:ISSX), a leading global provider of threat protection solutions, to deliver St. Bernard's proven remediation technology with an Internet Security Systems future intrusion protection offering scheduled for release later this year. This partnership effectively pairs the power and utility of the St. Bernard UpdateEXPERT software patch management and remediation tool with Internet Security Systems' world-class network intrusion protection solutions.

Network security depends on a combination of early detection of system vulnerabilities and the deployment of appropriate protection solutions, followed by prompt application of operating system and program patches once the impact of these patches has been tested and understood. This agreement between Internet Security Systems and St. Bernard Software represents a coupling of complementary technologies that effectively addresses both sides of the network security equation and complete the entire security life cycle process. Working in tandem, Internet Security Systems and St. Bernard Software will leverage their respective expertise to provide their customers with the most advanced detection and remediation tools to combat any potential threat to network security.

"St. Bernard Software is a leader and innovator in network security remediation, and we are excited to introduce their technology to our customers," said Ray Komar, director of business development for Internet Security Systems. "Our selection of UpdateEXPERT's remediation technology is a powerful complement to our intrusion protection solutions and underscores our commitment to providing Internet Security Systems customers with best-of-breed threat protection solutions."
