MegaPath Lessens Threat

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- MegaPath, the leading provider of Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions and other managed IP services to businesses nationwide, today announced the availability of SecureConnect, a network-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution that helps businesses safeguard information assets. SecureConnect protects business information and systems from both internal and external threats through the use of Attack Mitigation, Anti-Malware, Web Filtering and VPN capabilities. As such, it provides an ideal complement to MegaPath's MPLS VPN, Internet connectivity and remote access services.

"Security threats are growing increasingly more sophisticated and widespread, often costing enterprises millions to recover lost or compromised business critical information," said Jim Cragg, President and Chief Operating Officer of MegaPath. "SecureConnect Managed Security Services deliver comprehensive, accurate and highly-scalable threat protection that provides a competitive advantage to companies of all sizes."

According to IDC, UTM security systems will comprise a majority of the
billion combined firewall/VPN and UTM appliance market by 2008, outpacing traditional stand alone firewall/VPN appliances, with 58 percent of the overall share. MegaPath's SecureConnect UTM services allow organizations to deploy a turnkey solution that protects against the increasing sophistication, proliferation and severity of security threats, while providing the expertise needed to protect valuable customer and proprietary information. The end-to-end solution also helps organizations comply with regulatory and legislative security mandates, such as PCI/CISP, HIPAA, GLB and SOX.

"As Jamba Juice continues to add franchise locations and network endpoints, protecting business critical data and proprietary information from internal and external security breaches is paramount," said Robert Notte, Vice President of IT at Jamba Juice. "MegaPath's SecureConnect Unified Threat Management platform addresses Jamba Juice's need for a reliable, low cost solution to secure our business data."
