Swisscom Picks Verizon Business Professional Security Services

Swisscom has chosen the Verizon Business Professional Security Services team to help it boost its security offer for companies headquartered in Switzerland. Specifically, Verizon Business will help Swisscom develop a new security operations center and a new security management center. The facilities, which will be located in Zurich, are due to become operational in January.

The new operations center will further enhance the security services Swisscom is able to offer its local customers by providing a local facility to handle security incidents and alerts -- a regulatory requirement for some market sectors. The management center will provide data center capabilities to support the delivery of Swisscom's comprehensive portfolio of fully integrated communications security services, which is designed to meet the needs of today's extended global enterprises.

The new initiative is in addition to the Swisscom and Verizon Business alliance, established in May 2008. The alliance offers Swisscom customers with multinational operations seamless access to Verizon Business' expansive global network and solutions.
