SAN FRANCISCO, CA and ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - RSA Conference, Booth # 2754 -- ipTrust, a leading provider of security intelligence as a service, is announcing a partnership with IBM to integrate ipTrust's reputation analytics into IBM Managed Security Services. This integration will provide IBM with additional analysis and data streams to rate incoming Internet traffic and determine if IP addresses are potentially infected so they can be flagged or blocked from a client's network.

IBM Managed Security Services delivers the expertise, tools and infrastructure needed to secure corporations' information assets from constant Internet attacks, often at a fraction of the cost of in-house security resources. The addition of ipTrust's intelligence provides IBM with more advanced visibility into botnet and malware activity, enabling a smarter managed service.

"Customers depend on IBM to provide simplified security management, while staying on top of the latest threats and technologies," said Marisa Viveros, vice president, IBM Security Services. "ipTrust's innovative approach to delivering structured IP reputation intelligence as a service will enhance the quality of our service as we continue to innovate and provide customers with the peace of mind that we are staying ahead of the latest vulnerabilities and zero day issues."

Harnessing Web-scale technology, ipTrust distills hundreds of terabytes of raw security data into structured security intelligence that is easily integrated to enhance existing security programs and infrastructure. ipTrust harvests, analyzes and classifies malware and botnet activity each day from over five million systems around the world to deliver the industry's most accurate IP address reputation scoring service. Clients and partners can also use the service for risk-based authentication, forensic investigations, incident response and integration with network security devices and services.

"IBM is pushing the envelope in the managed security services market, as the first offering to incorporate the IP reputation intelligence needed to address modern threats," said Dan Ingevaldson, SVP of Product Management and Co-Founder, ipTrust. "We are pleased that IBM has chosen ipTrust to augment their already impressive capabilities, and make their services even more responsive and accurate."
