Alcatel hopes security will get users to switch
On Monday, the European telecommunications equipment maker announced the Automated Quarantine Engine, a new software product that applies a security policy to its enterprise switches, called OmniSwitches. The company also announced new relationships with endpoint security firm Sygate and Fortinet, a maker of Internet Protocol virtual private networks and firewalls.
Through these partnerships, Alcatel said it will be able to prevent and contain attacks on the network.
