Verizon Business Rolls Out Next-Gen Managed Security

Verizon Business now is offering its next-generation managed security services (MSS) platform, complete with new options for service to better meet enterprise security demands.

This enhanced platform is designed to safeguard corporate networks by proactively identifying vulnerabilities and prioritizing threats across the extended enterprise – resulting in better visibility, enhanced security and reduced risk, said the company. The platform is available immediately to customers throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Going beyond first-generation threat and vulnerability strategies to address underlying risk, Verizon’s new platform enables the management of multiple security platforms, changing business requirements and increased security compliance requirements. It also enables enterprises that lack in-house security expertise and have limited resources to effectively secure their networks while obtaining a consistent quality of service at an affordable, predictable cost.

A proprietary system — the State and Event Analysis Machine (SEAM) — enables Verizon Business and its customers to identify the threats that are potentially most harmful by gathering information from the company’s expansive global IP network as well as customer network- and premises-based security devices. The system uses this data to correlate risk from three key sources: threat information received from security devices in real time, vulnerability and technical asset information gathered from periodic scans, and asset criticality information received from the customer.

In addition, an enhanced online portal provides customers with information about their entire security infrastructure, including details that enable security executives to see their company’s network security status at any given time.

Verizon Business MSS customers can choose from one of three new service tiers to address individual requirements, including providing effective security solutions across multiple networks in different parts of the world, each with country-specific requirements. The tiers are Basic Monitoring, Premium Monitoring and Premium Monitoring and Management.
