Internet Research Group Initiates New Research
Service Into Network Security

Los Altos, Calif., September 10, 2004 – Internet Research Group (IRG) today announced a new strategic advisory research service focusing on Information and Network Security, and the first report in the service The Evolving Network Security Solutions Landscape.

“In the face of increasingly valuable applications, escalating threats, rising compliance pressures, more complex solutions and a growing purchasing sophistication that demands real business return on information security investments, the security landscape is rapidly shifting,” noted Peter Christy, co-founder of IRG. “Security solutions are very fertile ground for product and system innovation, and new business creation.”

IRG’s Information and Network Security Research Advisory Service combines traditional research reports with strategic advisory services to help shape technology business security strategies going forward. The new study, The Evolving Network Security Solutions Landscape, focuses on the rapidly strengthening system-level aspects of security – the integration and correlation of a broad set of information and services to minimize risk and intelligently plan and evaluate potential mitigation and threat response strategies.

Future reports in this new advisory service include:

  • Third Generation Vulnerability Management Systems
  • Proactive Security Practices
  • Application Level Protection
  • E-Mail Anti-Abuse Systems

The study is available in Q4, 2004. A prospectus for this study can be found can be found by clicking here.
