New premium tier response to ever evolving threat landscape innovates a new standard for efficient, responsive, and supremely effective managed security services. Carolina Advanced Digital is first to combine best-in-class products and services from leading technology partners, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Aruba Networks, Bradford Networks, and Fortinet.
[10/25/2016 – Cary, North Carolina]
Carolina Advanced Digital, a leading technology infrastructure and security solutions provider, is rolling out a new managed security service offering that uniquely allows customers to benefit from a range of products and services. Carolina Advanced Digital is first to offer information security technologies selected from a handful of the world’s best providers, including partners Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Aruba Networks, Bradford Networks, and Fortinet, as well as niche cyber security solutions that have been vetted by their teams.
Available at launch are three critical security-as-a-service modules:
- Firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS)
- Network Visibility-as-a-service (NVaaS)
- Security Information and Event Management-as-a-service (SIEMaaS)
As the most recent massive cyberattack against Dyn demonstrated, security threats are proliferating at a faster rate than ever. The frequency of these events is accelerating and their capacity for destruction is growing, fed by the resources and maturing capabilities of state-sponsored players. Traditional security solutions providers have been struggling to keep pace, locked into a system that only allows limited solutions within a single technology context.
Carolina Advanced Digital is offering enterprise customers a comprehensive menu of technology products and services, expertly managed by their team and including strategic partnerships to achieve the highest levels of support. This managed security service offering provides customers significant benefits compared to traditional MSPs, including:
- Superior solution flexibility and customization
- Centralized aggregation, management, reporting, and guidance
- Regular reviews with a dedicated engineer
- 24/7 support availability
“In the managed security services marketplace there hasn’t been anything new under the sun lately, which is unfortunate in light of security threats that are constantly evolving and expanding,” said Jennifer Minella, Vice President of Engineering at Carolina Advanced Digital. “For us, this is about ticking off numerous boxes that have obvious appeal to our customers, beginning with a unique ability to combine products and services from leading security partners. A unique benefit is our ability to collect, digest, and report key findings from various tools regularly in a meaningful and centralized way.
“With capital and operational expenditures savings that a subscription-based service allows, the ability to close gaps in other MSP offerings, improved flexibility, reduced personnel requirement… it just makes sense to our customers for so many reasons.”
With the ability to tap into the expertise and excellence of Carolina Advanced Digital, along with their partner companies, customers enjoy the peace of mind knowing that optimal security is deployed to support key workloads and processes. Staff are free to focus exclusively on high-value tasks and mission-critical operations.
“We are happy to expand our partnership with Carolina Advanced Digital through our newly launched MSP Program.” said Rick Sloane, vice president of channels at Bradford Networks. “Organizations are facing strong headwinds to secure their networks resulting from confluence of BYOD and Internet of Things (IoT) adoption, constant need for bigger IT budgets, and scarcity of experienced IT security staff. With the addition of Network Sentry to their Managed Security Services Suite, Carolina Advanced Digital can now offer security automation and orchestration functionality to minimize the risk and impact of cyber threats.”
The current launch teases what will soon be expanded into a complete package of the most in-demand security and infrastructure services, including network & wireless management, network access control & authentication, and security incident response. An announcement of availability for the expanded managed security service offering will follow in 2017.
