BT Assure Managed Cloud

Overview

Current Internet Security Challenges.

Enhance your global security perimeter.

The rapid pace of globalisation and mobile working means that the security perimeter has moved from its previously fixed and well-defined boundaries, to being everywhere and anywhere.

BT Assure Managed Cloud offers cloud based internet security, which enforces your corporate security policy, on any device, from any location.

Protection for your web traffic.

BT Assure Managed Cloud is a managed cloud based security service that provides real-time protection for your internet traffic. The service provides enhanced URL filtering controls to help increase user productivity, reduce bandwidth congestion, and protect your network from undesirable web content. As a first line of defence against threats, the service also proactively blocks web malware before it reaches the company network.

Advanced Threat Protection.

In order to defend and respond to advanced persistent threats, you need to address advanced malware before, during and after a security breach with a multi-layered defence framework.

BT Assure Managed Cloud provides the advanced protection that is required to defend against sophisticated malware. By blocking malware and providing continuous security and analysis to contain and fix threats that have entered your network, you are in a better position to defend against APT attacks.

BT’s approach to Cloud Security Services.

BT’s Security CEO, Mark Hughes, and Global Sales Director, Kate Kuehn, provide an overview of BT’s approach to Cloud Security Services.
