Management across 750 Networks
CHICAGO - Protection 1, the leading, premier, full-service business and home
security company in the U.S., announces that it has reached a major milestone in
the design, implementation and monitoring of security-only networks for its
clients. It now reports that is has over 1,000 network devices under management
across 750 networks, representing 18 unique customer logos. This represents a
500% year-over-year increase in managed network device deployments.
"Cyber-attacks are one of the greatest threats facing global businesses today,"
stated Ken Schafenberg, Protection 1's vice president of Integration Solutions.
"We have customers coming to us from across a wide variety of industries
including retail, healthcare, technology, hospitality and financial institutions
asking us to help them deploy a security network environment. This allows them
to separate their security devices from those on the corporate network that
house proprietary and customer data.
Through its Network Operations Center (NOC), Protection 1's skilled team of
engineers, project managers and technicians can design and deploy a company's
security equipment network, implement and manage broadband connections, and
design and implement VoIP systems. Protection 1 is uniquely qualified as the
only security company to hold the Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Express
Partner certification. This esteemed certification is awarded to companies that
have attained the expertise in the planning, designing, implementing and
supporting cloud or managed services based on Cisco platforms.
Some of the key advantages to implementing a security only network include
higher bandwidth availability and speed and access to the network for loss
prevention and security teams while not impacting business critical systems.
Protection 1's Network Operations' monitoring center can also proactively notify
customers of a potential problem with the network or its components before they
becomes major issues.
"Data breaches are a real and growing problem for many organizations today. This
trend makes the services provided by the Network Operations Center even more
important as our customers' needs evolve," concluded Schafenberg.
