Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sources close to IBM today confirmed the company had won an account to supply Netfinity boxes to the Holy See (surely 'Holy C'? -- Ed) in Rome. The source would not say how large the deal was to supply the Vatican, but said: "This is not a worldwide network, it could be one of the largest deals in the universe." In other news from IBM, the company was showing its eight way Profusion SMP server on its stand, which is expected to be available in Q3 of this year. The machine comes with a bundled AI system management tool, at no charge, that burrows down into the network and will predict failures likely to happen in the future. The company was also showing its lightweight, slimline 270 ThinkPad, which has been launched in the States but will appear in the UK, again in Q3, and will cost around £1500. ®
