As a part of the initiative, Micromuse is creating a bundle of its existing NetCool tools that are customized for security management. It is also creating alliance partnerships with security vendors such as CheckPoint Software Technologies Inc. and Network Associates Inc. as well as with integrators that have security practices such as Verisign Inc. and Greenwich Technology Partners. Micromuse hopes to extend the reach of its NetCool manager-of-managers software, used to consolidate a large number of network events, into the security management arena.
At the same time, a wide variety of different vendors tools populate the security space, and none of those tools communicate. "No one vendor provides all the pieces and there is no way to tie information together across those sources," said Frey.
