Fiberlink Adds Services

BLUE BELL, Pa. -- Fiberlink Communications Corporation, the trusted expert for simple, secure mobile working, today announced its newest managed security service with the addition of backup and recovery to the portfolio of Fiberlink Security Services.

Fiberlinks security on demand services allow IT departments to roll out new endpoint security applications quickly and cost-effectively, while maintaining control over their mobile computing environment. The enterprise IT staff selects the security applications and decides on configurations and policies. Fiberlink’s platform then configures, installs, monitors and updates the application software and signature files on mobile laptops and remote PCs without requiring any software or hardware at the customer premise. Fiberlink hosts the applications' management consoles, reporting modules, and remediation servers in its operations center and integrates them into its mobility platform for seamless delivery and operation. The IT staff has access to compliance reports and a growing array of controls for management and compliance purposes through Fiberlink’s convenient web-based customer portal (see today’s announcement: Fiberlink Simplifies Mobile Working with New Extend360 Mobility Platform 2.0™).

With the addition of data backup and recovery, Fiberlink now offers more than a dozen managed security services. These include services to monitor and manage popular personal firewalls, VPN clients and anti-virus packages already licensed by the enterprise, and subscription-based services to deploy and manage advanced endpoint security applications such as zero-day threat protection, intrusion prevention, vulnerability management, device control, information protection, and data encryption. Fiberlink partners with IT to provide effective security solutions for mobile workers so IT can devote more time to strategic projects. These services are managed based on pre-established IT policies and optimized to provide the best experience for mobile workers.
