SBC Adds Intrusion Prevention to Managed Security Services

SBC Communications is adding an intrusion prevention service to its portfolio of SBC PremierSERV Managed Security Services. The new SBC PremierSERV Managed Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS) provides business customers with a professionally managed tool that can detect, contain and/or neutralize both known network threats as well as previously unidentified threats, also known as "zero day" threats. These malicious intrusions - in the form of viruses and worms on network clients such as servers, laptops, desktops or other endpoints - can sometimes bypass traditional network perimeter-based security solutions.

SBC PremierSERV Managed IPS uses a network security solution from Mirage Networks.
