X-Force Research

The foundation of ISS' pre-emptive approach to Internet security is its X-Force research and development team. By discovering, researching and testing software vulnerabilities and collaborating with government agencies, industry consortiums and software developers, ISS stops more threats.
This powerful combination allows ISS to create effective defences before attacks occur. ISS' knowledge-based approach to protection is extended across the Proventia Enterprise Security Platform

ISS' products deliver pre-emptive protection - keeping your customers ahead of the next online threat more effectively and
more affordably than conventional security methods
