Verizon is launching a new offering aimed at helping enterprises looking to implement additional security measures against potential cyber attacks.
Unified Security Services, the latest in Verizon’s latest managed security portfolio, includes a preconfigured set of managed and monitored services to protect the network edge where IP data comes in and flows out of the organization.
The service is available to both Verizon and non-Verizon network customers.
The offering can help organizations enhance their overall security posture, reduce complexity of setup and reduce waste by consolidating multiple security functions into a single service, according to Verizon.
“With Unified Security Services, we have bundled together technology, human expertise and deployment services into one convenient offering, said Mike Denning, Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ vice president of global security. “This solution is aimed at helping organizations – with little to no internal staff – better safeguard their networks without adding complexity and/or more resources to their IT teams.”
The offering includes three tiers of service: basic, intermediate and advanced. It is available immediately in the United States, while future plans including launching a hosted version this fall, and making it available in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Canada in 2016.
With the new service, Verizon is targeting: midsize enterprises; larger organizations with regional offices or retail locations; and larger enterprises with connections to vendor networks. Also targeted are enterprises with remote network or remote offices that required centralized security and controls, and small-to medium-size businesses with limited IT staff and modest financial resources to devote to security.
