Two telcos, Verizon and Qwest Communications, have separately announced partnerships with IBM.

Verizon and IBM have expanded their relationship to deliver Managed Data Vault – a new private cloud service that provides daily backups, and fast recovery of enterprise information.

The Verizon/IBM solution is designed to automatically transfer data from a enterprise client’s location to a specially designed off-site data center via Verizon’s secure high-speed private network.

Separately, Qwest Communications announced the launch of two new managed solutions with IBM specifically designed for businesses with 15,000 employees or fewer: Qwest iQ Managed Security Service and Qwest iQ Network Management Service.

Qwest iQ Managed Security Service mitigates the impact of liability and security threats from malware, SPAM e-mail, unauthorized network access, and Internet resource misuse, supported by IBM Internet Security Systems.

Qwest iQ Network Management Service is a network monitoring and management product suite that provides complete out-tasking of all or part of a customer’s data network.
