TELEHOUSE America and Integralis Partnership Brings Full Suite of Managed Security, IT Infrastructure and Consulting Services to Data Center Customers

STATEN ISLAND, NY and EAST HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - TELEHOUSE America, www.telehouse.com, the United States' leading provider of dedicated data centers, international Internet exchanges, and managed IT services, and Integralis, www.integralis.com, a leading international IT security information risk service provider, today announced an agreement to offer Integralis' full portfolio of managed security, IT infrastructure and consulting services under TELEHOUSE's Manage-E brand. The partnership offers organizations solutions that reduce IT costs while achieving a greater depth of security protection, compliance and service availability.

Manage-E provides customers with an all-in-one managed and professional services solution not available from any one data center company. This comprehensive solution set provides Managed Security and IT Infrastructure along with global services and support. Included is an end-to-end services suite from help desk to full management, Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance consulting, and the Technology Lifecycle Advantage which reduces risk and cost in all phases of the security lifecycle from assessment and policy planning to deployment, 24x7 management, and service and hardware decommissioning.

"Our partnership with Integralis brings the company's depth of security and IT infrastructure knowledge and proven managed services experience to our U.S. customers," said Akio Sugeno, TELEHOUSE's Director of Internet Engineering and Operations. "As two of the premier global IT services providers, we look forward to further leveraging our partnership by bringing these security and IT infrastructure services to customers worldwide."

The first three in a series of managed and professional services offered by TELEHOUSE America and Integralis include:

--  Managed Security and IT Infrastructure Services and Support: This full
    spectrum of 24x7 services provides the most cost effective way to help
    reduce information risk starting with "SecureCall" help desk to
    "SecureWatch" monitoring to full "SecureManage" managed services.  This
    solution offers a complete level of support for security devices such as
    Firewalls and IDS and IT infrastructure including network, server,
    operating system, web server, database and application support.
    
--  PCI Compliance: Certified in both the Qualified Security Assessors
    (QSA) and Approved Security Vendors (ASV) programs, PCI compliance advisors
    conduct a full PCI assessment of the customer's cardholder environment
    using a proprietary methodology for rapid evaluation.  While most PCI
    compliance offerings only include a technical assessment, the
    Integralis/TELEHOUSE service provides a comprehensive business and
    technical methodology that identifies the compliance status of an
    organization's infrastructure and provides a valuable return-on-investment
    roadmap.
    
--  Technology Lifecycle Advantage:  This solution lowers the cost and
    risk of assessing, procuring and managing technology from initial
    assessment to decommissioning.  A full lifecycle approach can save up to 25
    percent by helping companies smartly plan and acquire infrastructure over
    time using a return on investment (ROI) roadmap.  This solution, which also
    includes best-of-breed vendor, extensive policy and day-to-day platform
    management, optimizes the IT environment while reducing overall security
    risk.
    

"Organizations are looking to data center providers today to help reduce costs and at the same time they are feeling the effect of tougher compliance and expertise shortages," said Andrew Lev, Group SVP Channels and Marketing. "We are excited that our partnership will provide TELEHOUSE customers with the services that will allow them to reduce their costs and increase security and service availability."
