Masergy Launches Integrated SD-WAN and Security Bundles

Masergy, a leading provider of managed SD-WAN, cloud communications, and managed security solutions, announced the launch of industry-unique bundles that combine its Managed SD-WAN solutions with advanced security services. According to Masergy, enterprises will benefit from increased application performance, cost reduction, advanced threat detection, and response.

“As leading enterprises are embracing the strategic advantages of a robust SD-WAN solution, they are also realizing the critical importance of securing their networks,” said Terry Traina, Chief Digital Officer at Masergy. “Our new SD-WAN bundles are currently the only solution on the market for companies that want the performance of SD-WAN coupled with the peace of mind that comes with 24/7 security monitoring and response.”

The company informed that new SD-WAN bundles include options for:

  • Unified Threat Management (UTM): This built-in capability integrates a range of security features including web filtering, antivirus, data loss prevention, and intrusion detection and prevention into a single platform.
  • Threat Monitoring and Response: Advanced protection includes 24/7 threat monitoring and real-time incident response for the entire SD-WAN deployment by certified security experts in global Security Operation Centers (SOCs).
  • Managed Security Services: Comprehensive managed detection and response services for cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments. It also includes an advanced security tool suite with machine-learning behavioral analytics, embedded threat intelligence, and 24/7 security monitoring and incident response.

Masergy’s integrated SD-WAN and security bundles come at a time when security is the top concern for SD-WAN deployments. Enterprises worry about constant security threats against their data, both on-premise and in the cloud. A recent survey by Masergy, conducted in partnership with IDG Research, found out that security (50%) is the top WAN challenge and the leading factor (81%) guiding companies in the SD-WAN selection process. With the new launch, Masergy is confident of providing its customers with managed SD-WAN with advanced security services.

Masergy delivers managed SD-WAN, cloud communications, and managed security to global enterprises with the industry’s best customer experience. The company has so far extended its footprint to more than 100 countries.
