Verizon Offers SaaS Network Security Service
Verizon Business is launching a new cloud-based security service for public and private IP customers.
Verizon's new 'clean pipe' offering is a SaaS security product that will be offered at no charge to Verizon's Secure Gateway, Public and Private IP customers. As noted in this Light Reading report, there will be additional cloud-based offerings, for network firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention, which Verizon will be selling separately.
"The point of cloud-based security offerings is to remove the increasingly complex task of providing security from the business, and make it a service offering that goes beyond even the existing managed security services, Nguyen-Duy says. As network threats grow more complex, the technology to detect and prevent them does as well, and fewer enterprises have the staff and capital expense budgets to acquire, maintain and constantly update premises."
