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.
