San Francisco-based Bivio Networks, which makes network systems for securing, monitoring and controlling critical network infrastructure, is teaming with Global Crossing, a global IP solutions provider, to deliver managed security services to U.S. government customers.

Global Crossing’s Federal Sector will use Bivio Networks products, including the recently announced Continuous Threat Monitoring Solution, to provide a managed security service to U.S. government customers that will include continuous monitoring, intrusion detection, anomaly detection and data retention. According to Global Crossing, the service reportedly leverages “the tools, techniques and procedures that Global Crossing has developed in order to protect its own global IP network, and to facilitate the protection of its customers’ networks. Through this partnership, Global Crossing will provide professional services; management of security hardware and applications; and operational support for continuous network monitoring.”

“Increasingly, government customers are turning to managed services to deliver the security, performance and manpower necessary to optimize and protect critical infrastructure,” said Dr. Elan Amir, president and CEO at Bivio Networks. “We look forward to applying our cybersecurity expertise to equip Global Crossing’s Federal Sector with the unprecedented network awareness and in-depth forensic capabilities necessary to provide the most advanced managed security services available today.”
