Purchasing a security package

A customer is looking for a security package that IBM may offer for the iSeries AS/400. Does IBM offer such a package that customers can purchase, or do they have to physically contact a business partner who may deal with third-party security packages?

It's possible that IBM, in a handful of countries, may offer security software packages along with the iSeries. When bundled, they are usually a software package developed by programmers in that country. I can think of a couple of countries that did this a couple of years ago, but I don't know what the current offerings might be. Certainly there are IBM Global Service offerings that sell various security vendors' packages. Which package they sell varies from country to country. In general, however, IBM does not sell a particular security product with the iSeries. So yes, you will have to contact the vendors directly.
