Systems integrator Datavision-Prologix Inc. now offers products from ReefEdge Inc. to enterprises operating wireless LANs. Last month the firms announced a partnership that should see Datavision installing ReefEdge’s “Connect System” among Fortune 2000 companies. The Connect System is ReefEdge’s name for a hardware/software combo that’s supposed to make wireless LAN management and security that much easier. The two companies have come together in what Datavision calls its “wireless technology consulting group,” a miniature consortium of companies working with Datavision to enhance the company’s integration offerings.

In an attempt to further its position in the UNIX server space, Hewlett-Packard Canada Ltd. last month added PA-8700 processors to its entry-level HP Server rp5400 series. These new processors promise quicker clock cycles than the PA-8600 chips they replace and, according to HP, they bring the entry-level server closer in line with the company’s higher-priced products. HP also says the rp5400 readily accepts other RISC chips and Intel Itanium processors. Prices start below $26,500 and the new servers are available immediately. HP Canada is online at

McAfee, the protective brand of Network Associates Inc., has bought into Finjan Software Ltd.’s unusual method of keeping viruses, worms and other forms of malicious code from gumming up the enterprise. The two companies this month announced a partnership wherein their products will not be sold separately, but very much part and parcel. McAfee is known for its antivirus technology. Finjan (named after a coffee urn and for script kiddies’ initial preference to write with Java) offers a “proactive” solution for detecting bad code, essentially giving bugs a sandbox to play in and reveal their true selves. With Finjan watching for behavioural characteristics and McAfee acting the sentry, the companies claim to offer the “ultimate” protection. See McAfee on the Web at and Finjan at
