Sun Introduces Six New Network Security Products

4/9/2003 - Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced six new software products that will deliver enhanced security in the network computing infrastructure for CIO's, system administrators and developers.

"While our competitors have made security flaws a feature, Sun has consistently made security one of its highest priorities. In fact, we don't just make security products -- we build security into everything we make."
