CHANNEL PARTNERS — EarthLink Business (Booth #1317 at the Fall 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo and an elite show sponsor) is previewing its new nationwide EarthLink cloud and hosted security services.
The cloud product comes in two flavors. The first is a self-service hosting platform, the second is a multi-data center enterprise hosting platform powered by VMWare’s vCloud technology. The latter targets larger companies with complex, demanding hosting needs. The services are part of the EarthLink Cloud division, which was LogicalSolutions.net.
Next, EarthLink’s new Hosted Security portfolio provide safeguards against threats including unauthorized network access and inappropriate Web content to infected files and malware. The service works with a customer’s private MPLS network. Key benefits include automatic updating of threat signatures, around-the-clock monitoring by security experts and no need for end-users to buy and maintain security equipment at each location. EarthLink offers a number of packages to meet different customer needs and budgets.
“EarthLink Business customers nationwide can now fully realize the benefits of dynamic and on-demand scalability in the cloud environment," said Brian Fink, executive vice president of managed services. “As a national managed services provider, expect EarthLink to continue its focus on innovative cloud services and secure IT outsourcing."
