Internet Security Systems Provides Integrated Components for HP Security Offering

LONDON — January 12, 2006 – Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS) (NASDAQ: ISSX) today announced the company is supporting HP’s security incident management service while providing network and host intrusion detection and prevention and vulnerability scanning through the HP Global Security Operations Centers (GSOCs).

As part of an agreement between the companies, a comprehensive set of security tools and services from ISS will be integrated into HP’s managed IT services portfolio, providing customers with critical security capabilities needed to strengthen their IT infrastructures. ISS’ Managed Security Services (MSS) will be integrated with the HP GSOC offering, which includes the unique findings of ISS’ X-Force® research and development team and the global strength of ISS security operations centres around the world. For the last seven years, X-Force has discovered more high-risk vulnerabilities than all other research groups and vendors combined.

“An HP alliance partner since 2002, ISS has an award-winning customer portal that provides organisations with a continuous, real-time view of their security status,” said Rick Miller, vice president of Managed Security Services at Internet Security Systems. “Having just been recognised by Frost & Sullivan for customer service innovation in Managed Security Services, ISS has confidence in our comprehensive security tools, services and intelligence.”

“The breadth of ISS’ product and services offerings and its expertise in the security market make it an effective partner to help deliver our new HP GSOCs,” said Tony Redmond, vice president and chief technology officer of Services and of the Security Program Office at HP. “With ISS, HP is raising the bar in the industry by delivering total security management for customers.”

ISS’ Managed Security Services deliver the expertise, knowledge and infrastructure that companies need to secure information assets from Internet attacks 24/7/365 at a fraction of the cost of in-house security resources. Through its market-leading service level agreements, ISS is the only company to offer customers money-back guarantees on its managed security offering. In addition to managing security products from its own Proventia® product line, ISS also supports and manages products from third-party vendors including Check Point, Cisco and Juniper for firewalls and 3Com and McAfee for intrusion prevention, maximising the value of customers’ existing investments.
