EMC embeds security
With the new privacy legislation just around the corner, EMC has integrated Celera's File Server antivirus solutions into its enterprise-level network attached storage (NAS) boxes. Using its relationships with Computer Associates, McAfee, Symantec and Trend Micro, the storage vendor aims to provide customers with centralised, scalable virus-checking capabilities while maintaining enterprise levels of data availability. The solution utilises external antivirus engines from each of the four vendors to provide "on-access" antivirus scanning by checking data and content files for viruses as they are updated.

Cisco's latest VoIPs
In what it called its biggest voice technology announcement of the year, Cisco rolled out a dozen new voice over IP (VoIP) products and enhancements to existing voice products last week. New software includes Conference Connection, an IP-based teleconferencing system, and Cisco Emergency Responder, a component that allows public safety answering points to identify locations of IP telephones used to initiate emergency calls. Cisco also introduced new voice hardware components, among them the model VG248 Analog Phone Gateway, which enables companies to connect existing analog telephones to a VOIP phone system. Each gateway supports 48 telephones. By comparison, Cisco's existing analog gateway handles connections for four telephones.
