Quick Bytes: WAN worries.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) lacks the automated network security tools that would help identify the cause of messages received from automated security devices, says a report by the DHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG). That’s no small problem: the report shows that from February to April 2005, more than 65 million security events were logged, and without automated tools in place, it is impossible for administrators to separate the real threats from the false alarms. @ The OIG’s report, management of the DHS Wide Area Network Needs Improvement, is available at SM Online.
