PRESS RELEASE — ARLINGTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Expanding its managed security services provider (MSSP) program, ThreatConnect, Inc.©, provider of the industry’s only extensible, intelligence-driven security platform, has partnered with CenturyLink, a global communications and IT services company. CenturyLink’s managed security services will now leverage the ThreatConnect Platform powered by SAP HANA.

ThreatConnect’s platform equips organizations to identify their most relevant threats, proactively protect their organizations, and quickly respond to incidents in a measurable way. The ThreatConnect MSSP Program helps firms like CenturyLink and their clients establish or integrate ThreatConnect into new or existing threat management and security operations functions to provide better detection, protection, and remediation services using threat intelligence.

ThreatConnect CEO Adam Vincent commented, “With the addition of CenturyLink, our MSSP program is expanding in the right direction. By providing automation, orchestration, and threat intelligence on a single platform, our MSSP program is a force multiplier that organizations like CenturyLink can leverage to offer threat detection and response, customized processes or any of a number of premium services to clients.”

CenturyLink Vice President of IT Security Services Tim Kelleher commented, “With the help of ThreatConnect’s security orchestration capabilities, we are able to seamlessly integrate numerous threat intelligence feeds from multiple commercial and proprietary sources into CenturyLink’s robust and comprehensive MSS platform.
