Perimeter E-Security Protects Enterprise Network with SaaS Network Security Solutions

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

With hard -to-detect threats stemming from Web-borne attacks and exploited vulnerabilities, security challenges are an all-time high for organizations. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives further aggravate the scenario, as organizations face challenges in managing a wide variety of mobile devices entering their network. These threats can jeopardize organizations’ intellectual property, infrastructures and reputations.

To help organizations deal with the modern security challenges, Perimeter E-Security, a provider of security as a service (SaaS) solutions, unveiled a new suite of services designed to secure the network of organizations and lower the cost of compliance.

The new SaaS Network Security provides customers with fully integrated, single provider solutions that support all network security needs. The solution enables monitoring of customer devices, analyze security logs and provide superior intelligence, allowing organizations’ staff to focus on core business activities without worrying about the security of their networks.

"CIOs are being squeezed from two sides: mounting security and compliance pressures on the one hand, and time, resource and staffing constraints on the other," said Andrew Jaquith, chief technology officer, Perimeter E-Security, in a statement.

The solution gives CIOs the essential tools they need to stay ahead of threats and extend the reach and effectiveness of their security teams, Jaquith added. 

SaaS Network Security offers simple and efficient log management, vulnerability management, device discovery, flexible reporting and detailed data mining features. All these features are offered in the cloud. It also allows customers to enforce policies and identify potential vulnerabilities in real time.

The cloud service also offers supplementary 24/7, nonstop security monitoring for critical devices, providing continuous peace of mind.

SaaS Network Security is offered in three editions: Standard Edition, Premium Edition, Managed Services and Consulting. Standard Edition features include log management, vulnerability management, device discovery, reporting and data mining. Premium Edition includes all Standard Edition features, plus it adds coverage from Perimeter's acclaimed Security Operations Center (SOC). For companies seeking a completely hands-off solution, Perimeter offers fully managed UTM devices and services for simplified security.  

Recently, AirTight, a provider of enterprise security solutions, announced it has created a solution that meets all of the basic security concerns surrounding BYOD. SpectraGuard, the new wireless intrusion protection system (WIPS) from the company, uses fingerprinting to help keep BYOD under control.
