At the same time, the company is opening a further Security Operating Centre (SOC) on the west coast of America. The SOCS are dedicated to the management and security of information systems for more than 200 customers, with over 2,000 devices, in 40 countries. The new Integralis Managed Security product range falls into three distinct categories; Managed Security as a Service (MSaaS) is a suite of best-of-breed security products, including SecureAuthenticate, SecureEmail, SecureWebScan, and SecureCheck, which are offered as hosted and maintained services through one customer portal. No hardware or software purchase is required. MSaaS is available in flexible user bands and service periods, costs are fixed, and SLAs are guaranteed. The second category is Managed Security Services (MSS). Under it’s umbrella fall SecureWatch and SecureManage. These services are provided from Integralis SOCS, strategically located around the world. Each SOC has its own team of highly-qualified and experienced analysts who deliver best practice information security management, 24x7. Full reporting including scheduling, automation, trouble-ticketing, and change request logging is available, and service dashboards give users a comprehensive view of their service. Pipex Business chose Integralis as a Consultancy Services Partner so they could enhance their value proposition and the capabilities of the two companies make a compelling offer for existing and potential customers.
