Verizon Completes Cybertrust Buy

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- Verizon Business is now the leading provider of managed security services to business and government customers worldwide with the completion of its previously announced acquisition of Cybertrust.

Verizon Business today boasts unmatched capabilities and global reach, including a combined security services staff of more than 1,100 professionals deployed throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region.

Customers of Verizon Business and the former Cybertrust are benefiting immediately from the combination of the companies' assets, products, professional services and people into an enhanced Verizon Business Security Solutions practice. Starting today, each company's customers can access an integrated portfolio of security offerings--combined under the "Verizon Business Security Solutions powered by Cybertrust" brand.

"In today's globally mobile, millisecond-fast economy, security protection is essential to ensuring the health of every business," said Nancy Gofus, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Business.

"With our newly expanded world-class security capabilities, Verizon Business is enabling customers to better secure their businesses. We are uniquely positioned to help as an organization moves into the era of the extended enterprise where data must be stored and secured from location to location, from partner to supplier, from the private network to the public Internet, from the desktop to the cell phone, and everywhere in-between," she said.
