    WorldCom Unit Rolls Out Security Service
    WorldCom Advanced Networks launched a security service yesterday that's
    aimed at helping companies monitor their networks for security breaches. 
    SecureSweep, which uses scanning technology from Internet Security
    Systems, will periodically simulate attacks on a customer's network to
    find any vulnerabilities. Once a scan is completed, the customer will
    receive a list of vulnerabilities on each system and recommendations on
    how to fix them, say officials at the WorldCom unit. 
    The service also employs assessment tools and security audit packages from
    Fortrex Technologies, HomeCom Communications, Microsolved Information
    Security Consulting, NJH Security Consulting, and Vanstar. WorldCom says
    it will add more partners by year's end. 
    Available now, SecureSweep is subscription-based, in packages of one, two,
    four or 12 site scans. Pricing ranges from $1,600 to $10,000, depending on
    the number of scans.
