Hembrough, president and chief executive officer of Application Security,
Inc. "AppSecInc and Internet Security Systems fully understand that,
and are helping to provide organizations around the world with the
solutions needed to defend the integrity of their information resources

sources or internal malicious behavior, is to compromise data. Now
is the time for enterprises to protect information assets as thoroughly
as they protect their walls and doors."

to offering enterprise organizations solutions that preemptively protect
them from the full range of Internet Threats," -more- Application
