Crossbeam Introduces Consulting Services Portfolio

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Recently, Crossbeam Systems unveiled an expanded Consulting Services portfolio. This portfolio assists customers in successfully planning, designing, implementing and optimizing their network security infrastructure.

These days, the majority of network security providers push pre-packaged fixed platforms. But Crossbeam knows every company is different and that means offering tailored security solutions for every company.

The company offers products such as X-Series, a family of open, adaptable platforms with the capability to offer real-world security application processing from 5Gbps to 140Gbps.

The services enhance deployment and maximize the availability and operational efficiency of customers' security solutions.

Crossbeam Consulting enhances the company's complete Services offering, which also consists of always available technical support and robust, flexible training.

Going beyond the X-Series to include the security applications from its best-of-breed partners (i.e., Actiance, Check Point, Imperva, McAfee and Sourcefire), Crossbeam consultants bring a unique combination of network and security expertise.

Based on core, trusted technology, they know how to optimally design best-in-class network security.

“No one has more experience implementing security technology in the world's most complex and high-performance network environments. These offerings formalize the high-level consulting services that we've been delivering for years," said Tom Nolette, vice president of Client Services and Operations at Crossbeam. "As customers look to evolve their security infrastructures to meet the growing demands of next-generation data centers, our consultants provide the expertise and comprehensive, yet flexible services to help them make this transition.”

The company also recently partnered with network testing solutions provider Spirent Communications, to host a series of workshops in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, Brazil, for network security professionals and network diagramming architects in firms. While allowing high levels of performance required for their businesses, the workshops are designed to guide network security professionals on how to effectively deploy security solutions within their networks.
