Lotusphere Announcement No.2 – Lotus Protector

No this sounds interesting, an email security appliance with Lotus branding…  Just what IBM should be looking to do – making the most of server, storage and software all in one easy to install box.  Almost, Apple-like?

“Lotus Protector for Mail Security is a “black box” (hardware/software combo or software-only VMWare image) pre-processor for anti-spam and anti-virus.  Protector was developed in conjunction with IBM Internet Security Solutions (ISS). Additional Protector security capabilities will be announced later in 2008.”
