    Tokyo, April 10 (Jiji Press)-NEC Corp. will start services next week to
    help companies secure their computer networks against hackers, the company
    said Friday. 
    To examine customers' security systems, it will break into their networks
    experimentally by using SAFEsuite software, developed by Atlanta-based
    Internet Security Systems Inc. 
    NEC will then point out problems and suggest how to improve the security
    of the computer networks, company officials said. 
    It will also design security systems, provide a 24-hour network monitoring
    service and offer educational programs concerning security control, they
    With introduction of the Internet, an increasing number of companies are
    suffering at the hands of hackers. 
    The Japan Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center, which
    tackles computer security problems, says it received 505 reports of
    hacker-caused sabotage through Dec. 31 last year from the center's start
    of operations in October 1996. 
    JPCERT/CC operates under the auspices of the Japan Information Processing
    Development Center, a nonprofit organization. JIJI PRESS NEWSWIRE 10/04/98
