IBM, Cisco partner on security technology
Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM and Cisco, the world's largest maker of equipment that directs Internet traffic, said that they want to make it easier for businesses and governments to protect their data and beat computer viruses.
The agreement is part of a long-term alliance between the companies that last year led to IBM modifying its data storage software so that it would work better with Cisco storage switches, the companies said.
As part of the security agreement, IBM and San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco said their products would better be able to detect when there was a threat to a business's security.
