ARMONK, N.Y. -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Sonnenschein Nath and Rosenthal LLP, a large multi-practice law firm with more than 700 attorneys across the globe, is using the preemptive protection platform from its Internet Security Systems (ISS) division to secure nearly three thousand devices on its network. Sonnenschein chose IBM ISS for the proactive nature of its security, which is designed to protect organizations from software vulnerabilities before they are exploited by online attackers, instead of waiting until an attack materializes to develop a fix.
"The face of hackers is clearly changing," said Adam Hansen, director of security at Sonnenschein. "They are increasingly becoming more sophisticated and profit-driven, making the protection of our data and assets even more critical. We simply cannot afford to take chances with our security, which is why Sonnenschein has confidently chosen IBM ISS to defend our infrastructure."
"Sonnenschein is an example of an organization that truly understands the relationship between being ahead of the threat and achieving business success," said Peter Evans, vice president of Business Line Management at IBM Internet Security Systems. "Reactive security is no longer sufficient. Enterprises need to take a proactive approach to security and implement automated platforms developed to preemptively protect against intrusions and malware before anyone even knows they exist."
