Users want security rethink

Monday, 7 February 2005, 12:13 PM EST

IT user group the Jericho Forum will release a report at the end of February calling for new security standards to be developed to meet the needs of user organisations, rather than vendors. It also proposes the development of a secure network architecture to help companies collaborate and do business online.

Jericho said that its members, which include UK enterprises such as Royal Mail and BP, believe more must be done to lower the cost of such technology.

"Security controls can be complex and inflexible when they need to protect multiple dissimilar access methods and protocols," it said.
