IBM has announced the launch of a next-generation intrusion prevention appliance that helps control social media and web browsing risks.

According to the company, the IBM Security Network Protection XGS 5000 helps clients address advanced attacks targeting their organisation by providing visibility into what applications are being used on the network, where users are going on the web and monitor and control this activity.

Built on the features found in IBM Security Network Intrusion Prevention System, it incorporates global threat intelligence from X-Force and includes protection for zero-day exploits by adding new levels of visibility and control over the network, applications, data and users, IBM said.

Brendan Hannigan, general manager of the IBM security systems division, said: “The escalation of targeted attacks and rapid adoption of mobility, cloud and social media requires companies to take a new approach to securing the enterprise.
