    CA taps security vendor for add-on to Unicenter

      Computer Associates and Data Fellows have formed a partnership to add
    Data Fellows F-Secure security system to CA's Unicenter TNG. 
      Data Fellows will provide an add-on module to connect its F-Secure
    Workstation Suite with Unicenter TNG. The Suite provides file and network
    encryption, malicious code detection, anti-virus, and other security
    features, officials said. 
      The combination of F-Secure with Unicenter TNG will allow users to
    centrally manage security on a platform they already have, according to
    Petri Laakkonen, president of Data Fellows, in San Jose, Calif. 
      "The Unicenter user can, all of the sudden, use that major investment
    they already have to manage security in their infrastructure," Laakkonen
    said. "The most important point is the fact that [IT managers] are already
    using Unicenter and they are concerned about using multiple different
    consoles or management tools to manage network security." 
      Security has largely been absent from enterprise management applications
    until a focus on Internet commerce has brought the issue to the fore,
    according to Laakkonen. 
      "[Unicenter] hasn't focused on security very well. Security hasn't been
    part of the infrastructure for such a long time yet.  It's like an
    afterthought for those management system vendors,"  Laakkonen said. "Now
    we need to extend [security] integration to be part of the enterprisewide
    management system through integration with CA Unicenter" 
      Data Fellows has also joined the CA Development Partner Program. 
      A small add-on module to connect F-Secure Workstation Suite to Unicenter
    is slated for release by the end of the first quarter of this year, with
    pricing to be determined. Data Fellow's F-Secure Workstation Suite starts
    at $149 for a single per-seat license.
