Cisco iPhone app tracks security

Free program can be used to receive alerts

Colleague Ellen Messmer has a story this week on a new iPhone application from Cisco that can be used to receive more than a dozen security-related information feeds pertaining to Cisco products and general security topics. The application is free too, Messmer reports.

The Cisco SIO To Go iPhone application draws from Cisco's security intelligence operations (SIO) that compile information from sensors and other sources about security threats worldwide. Information feeds include Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team Alerts, IPS signatures, applied mitigation bulletins, as well as links to the Cisco security blog, cyber-risk reports, Twitter feeds and security podcasts.

SIO is Cisco's first iPhone application specifically for security. Cisco unveiled another free iPhone application early this year that lets iPhone users participate in WebEx virtual meetings.
