Masergy's Managed Security Service Shortlisted by SC Magazine

Unified Enterprise Security Selected as Industry's First Fully Integrated Behavioral Analytics Security Platform

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2015) - Masergy Communications Inc., today announced that its Unified Enterprise Security (UES) solution has been selected as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Behavior Analytics/Enterprise Threat Detection category for the 2016 SC Awards. A distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from the SC Magazine readership selected UES for its advanced machine learning and big data analytics technologies that help enterprises identify anomalous network behaviors.

The SC Magazine judges were impressed with the UES capability, which identifies even the most subtle anomalies and suspicious behaviors that could indicate potential security breaches. UES behavior analytics detect breaches, malware and advanced persistent threats by examining network activity at the packet level to discover unusual and potentially harmful patterns.

UES works as a standalone solution or can integrate existing security point solutions. The managed service includes:

  • Security Control Center with continuous monitoring by certified security analysts
  • Security Threat Intelligence Dashboard
  • Integrated Vulnerability Scanner & IDS/IPS System
  • Fully managed premise, cloud, and virtualized firewalls

"To be truly effective in protecting data, security solutions need to have a combination of advanced security capabilities. They must also be modular with the capability to easily introduce new features and services that constantly improve detection," says Masergy CTO Tim Naramore. "Masergy's UES system is comprised of an architecture that enables customers to choose the services they need to address their security needs."

Winners of the 2016 SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and cocktail party on March 1, 2016 in San Francisco. This event attracts top professionals in the IT security community and provides an invaluable opportunity for networking.
