Trusted Information Systems said it has formed an alliance with Price Waterhouse to promote network security.
Price Waterhouse added the TIS Gauntlet line of network security products to the offerings of its enterprise security solutions group, a unit in the accounting firm's risk-management area.
TIS, which recently released version 4.0 of its Gauntlet firewall, will also be training Price Waterhouse security specialists on installation, operation, and day-to-day maintenance of the product.
The agreement "indicates the growing importance Big 6 firms are placing on network security," said Harvey Weiss, president of TIS' commercial division. He said Price Waterhouse is "a firm with tremendous expertise in network security."
