"Enterprises are fighting an uphill battle, as new and more sophisticated threats are launched each day," said Dan Franklin, vice president of business development for Radware. "By joining the SecureIT Alliance, we now have the ability to help more enterprises truly understand the critical role of security as a core business enabler, not just a response to threats. Working together with Microsoft and other leading security providers, we can help network and security professionals identify and stop malicious and legitimate threats, preventing revenue-affecting downtime and in turn making a measurable impact on business performance."
At RSA Conference 2006, the largest information security conference, the SecureIT Alliance's Web site goes live to the public on Feb.14, featuring a comprehensive directory of alliance members with solution offerings, news and events.
"We founded the SecureIT Alliance because we feel that strength comes from numbers.

"We are delighted that Radware has joined us in our mission, and are looking forward to working with them to further strengthen the security of our platform."
