What is an IES Gateway?

What is an IES Gateway? Our corporate security staff is asking us if we have one in place.

What I'm guessing from your question is that IES is either Information and Electronic Services OR Informaton Engineering Services.

Both lead me to believe that they are managed services or a managed gateway. Since I'm unaware of your business or network enviroment, this is the best I can do at this point.

Both are very generic in terms and I'm guessing your management read it in a magazine, which happens all the time, and are now demanding you know exactly what that magazine said.

My best guess is this: Managed Services or some type of Gateway to manage connections between unlike systems. IES is not a standard IT term, thus the confusion in my response.
