DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Masergy, a leading provider of managed SD-WAN, cloud communications and managed security solutions, today announced industry-unique bundles that combine its Managed SD-WAN solutions with advanced security services.
Masergy Managed SD-WAN delivers simple, secure, and scalable connectivity that improves application performance, reduces cost and increases agility. A recent IDG survey indicated that for 81% of buyers, security was the top criteria in selecting SD-WAN services. With deep expertise in both software-defined networking and sophisticated threat detection and response, Masergy is now providing customers with integrated and bundled options for SD-WAN security.
Masergy’s three new SD-WAN bundles include options for:
- Unified Threat Management (UTM): This built-in capability integrates a range of security features including web filtering, antivirus, data loss prevention, and intrusion detection and prevention into a single platform.
- Threat Monitoring and Response: Advanced protection includes 24/7 threat monitoring and real-time incident response for the entire SD-WAN deployment by certified security experts in global Security Operation Centers (SOCs).
- Managed Security Services: Comprehensive managed detection and response services for cloud, on-premises and hybrid environments, including an advanced security tool suite with machine-learning behavioural analytics, embedded threat intelligence, and 24/7 security monitoring and incident response.
“We’re witnessing a sustained increase in SD-WAN adoption across many verticals and industries,” said Mike Sapien, Chief Analyst of Enterprise Services at Ovum. “From survey work, Ovum sees security as the top concern for SD-WAN deployments. Customers want the application performance benefits provided by SD-WAN, but lack the internal resources necessary to ensure their network remains secure against all attack vectors. Masergy is in a unique position to offer differentiated Managed SD-WAN with advanced security services for customers with its tightly bundled offerings.”
“As leading enterprises are embracing the strategic advantages of a robust SD-WAN solution, they are also realizing the critical importance of securing their networks,” said Terry Traina, Chief Digital Officer at Masergy. “Our new SD-WAN bundles are currently the only solution on the market for companies that want the performance of SD-WAN coupled with the peace of mind that comes with 24/7 security monitoring and response.”
