Masergy Integrates Managed Cloud Workload Protection Into MDR Platform

Enables scalable and secure enterprise cloud services

DALLAS, Dec. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Masergy, a leading provider of hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communications solutions, announced the availability of its Managed Cloud Workload Protection solution. The managed offering reduces threats to enterprise cloud services by delivering rigorous protection, detection and response capabilities for AWS, Azure, Google and private cloud environments. This innovative solution is the latest integration into  Masergy’s comprehensive Managed Detection and Response (MDR) platform to mitigate risk, offload incident monitoring and improve security outcomes.

“Migration to IaaS/PaaS environments offer tremendous business benefits, but as we’ve seen with recent high-profile cloud breaches, a single misconfiguration or missing control can be detrimental,” said Jay Barbour, director of security product management, Masergy.  “Our managed solution delivers best practices for tracking vulnerabilities and ensuring proper configuration. With 24/7 monitoring from our global team of certified security experts we provide real-time alerting and incident response.”

According to Gartner’s How to Make Cloud IaaS Workloads More Secure Than Your Own Data Center G00300337, “95% of cloud security failures will be the [IaaS] customer’s fault.” In addition, “adopting the best practices outlined in this research will require changes to security culture, mindsets and processes, thus slowing adoption.”

Masergy addresses Gartner’s recommendations and goes even further by extending patented security analytics capabilities and mature processes to cloud computing environments in partnership with CloudPassage. This continues Masergy’s expansion of its Managed Detection Response ecosystem with a cost-effective solution that provides scalable coverage for servers, virtual machines, cloud operating systems and containers.

Benefits include:

  • Automates best practices and accelerates enterprise migration to cloud computing while also supporting legacy on-premise servers and data centers
  • Frees up critical in-house security resources from time-consuming 24/7 alert monitoring and triage
  • Protects against sophisticated attackers and security misconfigurations with extensive security controls and audit capabilities
