The Armonk, N.Y., company last week rolled out an Express configuration for its eServer OpenPower 710 system bundled with e-mail security software from a third-party vendor, Message Partners. In addition, IBM is offering a service to small and midsize businesses in which IBM and its partners will manage SMBs' e-mail security.

"Think of it as owning and leasing [security capabilities]," said Kevin Dawson, IBM's manager of Linux on Power solutions.

IBM's OpenPower systems run on the company's Power5 processor and are targeted at the Linux community. IBM last week launched OpenPower Network e-Mail Security Express, aimed at SMBs with 100 to 1,000 employees.

MPP, a security application that can be adapted and scaled as needed, also offers e-mail archiving capabilities. Message Partners is a division of RAE Internet Inc., in New Rochelle, N.Y.
