Alcatel Security for Multi-Vendor Networks

At their global partner forum in Paris this week Alcatel announced enhanced intrusion control and access control list (ACL) management capabilities for its Alcatel OmniVista enterprise network management system. The enhancements extend automated intrusion control to the Alcatel OmniSwitch product family for LAN and wireless LAN infrastructures, as well as basic intrusion control to third party LAN switches. Coupled with the security features of the Alcatel OmniSwitch, the new features protect the network from attacks and significantly reduce the time network administrators spend on complex, repetitive security administration.
