Hello all,

Symantec is starting a free pilot program for Educational institutions
around to world to compare their Firewall and IDS incident data.  In
specific the pilot will allow for educational facilities to contrast their
own Incident data with that of other educational facilities, and the rest
of the world, on a near real-time basis.  With this reporting, pilot users
will be able to obtain detailed statistics on how their organization
contrasts the rest of the world.  They will be able to run granular
reports, including reports on specific attackers and event types (IDS and
Firewall).  These reports will provide a comparison of attacks targetting
your own network, contrasted with those seen by other users within the
DeepSight Threat Management System.  The DeepSight Threat Management System
currently monitors data from educational institutions in over 50 countries.
In addition to this pilot users get full (free) access to the DeepSight
Threat Management System . More can be read about this system at:
