Verizon Business is offering its next-generation managed security services platform to help large- and mid-sized businesses protect their assets from cyber threats. The enhanced platform is available immediately to customers throughout the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Verizon’s proprietary system – the State and Event Analysis Machine (SEAM) – identifies threats by gathering information from the company’s global IP network as well as customer network- and premises-based security devices. An online portal enables central management control, dynamic querying and reporting, and twelve-month trending and benchmarking.

The company offers a range of managed security services via its global IP backbone (in the cloud), at the customer’s premises or via a hybrid approach.

For premises-based solutions, Verizon provides support for numerous devices, including firewalls, network and host-based intrusion prevention and detection systems, unified threat management, application log monitoring and management, network access control, and content screening. Verizon’s in-the-cloud offerings include denial-of-service detection and mitigation, as well as managed e-mail and Web content, and network-based firewalls.

In similar news, AT&T announced enhancements to its network-based security system this week. (For more, click here).
