MegaPath Inc. has bolstered its managed security capabilities to help enterprises protect network performance and increase productivity; the upgrades are available for channel partners to sell.
The provider on Thursday said its Managed Security Services now control in-the-cloud signature updates, scanning and cleaning, all of which results in a steady flow of clean data to businesses. The company said it identifies dangerous content at the network edge and keeps it from impacting the last-mile connection. This preserves bandwidth and promotes network availability.
“Cloud-based security options are a growing alternative that a lot organizations are looking to expand," said S.L. Sweet, director of product management for MegaPath, in a prepared statement. “We have taken deliberate steps to make sure our ... MPLS network offers clean data pipes that are secure to the core and answer one of the most vital questions asked by businesses: Who’s protecting my business?"
Managed Security Services features include advanced weekly reporting options, such as figuring out the top viruses detected based on source and destination. There also are firewall logs, IPS alerts and most-denied address destinations, based on content filtering options. The services are delivered in a SaaS format, which means there is no hardware to buy and provisioning is done on-demand in a short amount of time. Customers also may choose between self-service or fully managed SLAs.
