Sprint expands its managed security solution product set

Sprint (NYSE: S) is cashing in on the burgeoning need enterprises have for security by enhancing its managed security service portfolio.

Taking a partnership-based approach to the managed security opportunity, Sprint is working in tandem with CompuCon, a professional service and consulting IT provider, to deliver a number of security products to help enterprise customers defend themselves against internal and external network attacks.

Among the many new features offered in the enhanced portfolio are Unified Threat Management (UTM), Sprint Secure Log Management and Compliance, Sprint Secure Vulnerability Monitoring, Sprint Secure PCI-DSS Scanning and Assessment, and Sprint Secure Managed Host-Based Antivirus/AntiSpam.

Although CompuCom is an extension of the Sprint Managed Security Services portfolio, Tom Roberts, vice president of business marketing, Sprint said it will remain "the primary point of contact with businesses for billing, support and overall customer experience."

While Sprint has been offering a suite of managed services for a number of years, the expansion of the managed security portfolio reflects the ongoing move in the wireline community to offset declines in traditional voice and legacy data revenue.
