Frontier serves up broadband, security bundle for SMBs

Frontier is bringing its PC maintenance and storage services to more small businesses by offering a new broadband, PC and content offering called Frontier Secure Broadband for Business.

SMB customers that sign up for the Frontier Secure Broadband for Business will get a bundle of high-speed Internet, phone service, Computer Security Pro, and Content Anywhere in a single offering for $59 a month.

The one catch for SMBs is that they have to commit to a minimum one-year agreement.

Similar to what it has offered in the consumer market, Frontier has adapted Computer Security Pro to the business market. Businesses that subscribe to the service will get a Central Management Console to monitor security for up to five workstations, online administration tools to easily manage services anywhere, anytime, and fully automated software upgrades and virus updates.

With the Content Anywhere Pro, a business can store its data securely in its own private cloud, while letting them save, access and share anywhere, from any Internet-connected device. In addition, customers can view, collaborate, organize, search and share, online or offline.

Providing such services makes sense in the SMB market as these types of businesses typically lack the IT resources to manage computer security and storage.

It will also give Frontier another potential revenue source. During the second quarter, Frontier reported that business revenues were $621 million, up year-over-year from $516 million.
