TOKYO, JAPAN - NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced today the launch of its Global Unified Threat Managed (Global UTM) service, which will provide Arcstar™Global IP-VPN customers with integrated services for planning, constructing, managing and implementing effective protection against network security threats.
Global UTM utilizes a range of security technologies to provide IP-VPNs with comprehensive protection against threats. A service package typically includes modules for integrated firewall, IPSec VPN, Intrusion Protection System(IPS) antivirus content and spam filtering.
The service enables customers to utilize outsourced security management with 24/7 support to monitor their network traffic and protect themselves against threats that could potentially impact their businesses. Security incidents are managed expertly by NTT Com's Security Operation Center (SOC), which specializes in root-cause analysis, incident remediation and other security-management measures.
The service offers numerous competitive features, including:
- Comprehensive security management for global enterprise networks
- Integrated suite of services covering a variety of security measures.
- World-class security developed in collaboration with leading third-party research centers.
- Real-time identification of threats and rapid recovery for minimized impact.
- Total-cost optimization of global security management.
Multinational companies are demanding security-management services on a single platform to help them prevent or minimize increasingly sophisticated threats to their network security. In particular, multinationals need to be able to manage server, PC and firewall security locally and contain security incidents before they spread throughout their global networks.
With the service, hardware and software is installed locally on the client's premises by dedicated engineers of NTT Com and its overseas affiliates or partners, with support from device vendors.
A key option is the Real Time Event Notification Service, which provides immediate notification of any security threat exceeding a client-specified level. Professional security engineers are available on a 24/7 basis to analyze security events and devise rapid countermeasures.
NTT Com will launch the Global Unified Threat Managed Service in Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, U.K., U.S. and Vietnam beginning April 1. Three levels of service will be available depending on client needs.
