Verizon Business to Offer Managed Data-Protection, Data-Loss-Prevention Service

Verizon Business plans to add two new managed security services to address the entire flow of data within the extended enterprise.
The new services, available later this year, aim to prevent malicious requests that could compromise a company's databases. The new managed services are:

  • Management and monitoring of software and appliances for database auditing and prevention/database activity monitoring. These software and appliances effectively act as a security buffer, preventing malicious requests that could compromise a database. Verizon Business' service will be available beginning in July.

  • Management and monitoring of data-loss prevention technologies. Verizon Business' support of these tools will allow customers to outsource to Verizon Business the tracking and monitoring of their data, whether it is at rest, in transit or in use. The service will be available beginning in September.

Verizon Business already offers a number of other services addressing data protection and data loss prevention, including Data Forensics and Managed Security Services.http://www.verizonbusiness.com/us/security
