MegaPath, Inc. launches it’s new MegaPath Managed Security Services. Delivered from the cloud, on-premises or as a hybrid solution for more comprehensive coverage, MegaPath’s Security as a Service (SaaS) offerings leverage the company’s nationwide PCI-certified MPLS network.
As a result of the merger between MegaPath, Speakeasy and Covad in 2010, MegaPath leverages its nationwide network to deliver increased reliability, performance and security to its access, voice and data communications customers. Coupled with the company’s leading Internet connectivity options, MegaPath’s cloud-based services provide customers with a secure network implementation to support their business communications requirements. In addition, the Company’s on-premises security services allow customers to leverage the Internet connection of their choice, while improving their internal network protection.
MegaPath Managed Security Services leverages Fortinet’s (NASDAQ: FTNT) Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions to deliver robust, industry leading protection, while helping customers to control capital expenses and IT management resources. Customers can select a MegaPath Internet connectivity service and then select the SaaS service to address their specific security requirements, corporate guidelines and compliance needs.
“Security is one of the top concerns within most organizations today, and by adding leading security capabilities to our premises-based offerings, MegaPath can now offer services that protect customers’ internal networks and Internet connections,” said John Ramsey, Senior Product Manager of Managed Security and Compliance, MegaPath.
MegaPath Managed Security Services are ideal for heavily regulated industries, including retail, healthcare and financial services, where businesses must maintain compliance with industry regulations. As part of its SaaS offering, MegaPath is providing customers with enhanced Compliance Services that incorporate managed logging, vulnerability scanning and Security Information Management (SIM). MegaPath’s managed logging provides users with real-time collection and correlation of security events along with a daily automated review function. It also allows users to configure alerts for PCI-related events. The SIM capabilities deliver increased correlation of events across multiple devices and sites, and allow users to view an audit trail for any questionable events.
Ramsey continued, “MegaPath isn’t just helping to lower costs; we are reducing risk and increasing security. In talking with our customers, this is the service they have truly been looking for from their telecommunications partner.”
In addition to its Compliance Services, MegaPath’s Managed Security Services offers Attack Mitigation with an advanced firewall and intrusion prevention with rogue wireless detection, Web Filtering with content filtering and white/blacklisting, Anti-Malware with anti-virus, anti-crimeware and anti-spam, and Application Security with advanced application control and data leak prevention. MegaPath’s cloud-based service requires no additional hardware or OEM contracts and is backed by aggressive SLAs. Customers can also choose a premises-based UTM appliance or take advantage of a hybrid approach, which provides security every step of the way
