Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

ComputerWire: IT Industry Intelligence

Computer Associates International Inc has announced a partnership with web hosting provider Verio Inc, through which Verio will offer CA's security solutions to its European customers.

Through the agreement Verio, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications Corp, will offer Islandia, New York-based CA's eTrust Firewall and eTrust Intrusion Detection software to customers of its hosting services in Europe.

Verio already offers firewall and intrusion detection services globally through partnerships with the likes of NetScreen, CheckPoint, Nokia, Cisco and Enterasys, but has expanded its portfolio with the CA software in order to offer an entry-level security suite, according to UK country manager Alastair Blackburn.

"Security is perceived as a risk at a certain price," he said. "CA is rich in functionality but competitively priced and is a software-only implementation rather than hardware and software, or software and services."

According to Blackburn, this means that it is an ideal solution for small-to-medium enterprises wanting a low-cost way to protect data perceived as medium risk.

Blackburn also described the partnership with CA as "the start of something quite significant" that would likely become a global agreement and could expand beyond security services. He said that Verio's customers had expressed interest in portal software and storage management services, which among other things were potential targets of an expanded partnership between Verio and CA.
