Zen Internet Launches New Managed Security Service

By | April 3, 2006

Zen Internet, a multi-award winning Internet Service Provider (ISP), has today launched a comprehensive Managed Security service to meet the needs of its rapidly growing base of business customers.

Based upon Fortinet’s award winning Unified Threat Management appliances, Zen’s Managed Security customers will benefit from a range of services including network security consultation and design, 24 x 7 network monitoring, monthly firewall activity reports and on-going support from a dedicated support team. Zen’s Managed Security service is backed up with a Service Level Agreement and allows both small and large companies to focus on their business safe in the knowledge that their network is protected from a range of Internet threats.

“Security has become increasingly important to our customers, particularly with the rise of e-commerce and online operations,” said Justin Barritt, Product Manager at Zen Internet. “Our decision to develop a Managed Security solution is based upon the needs of our customers who are struggling to protect their networks against a growing range of Internet threats. Smaller businesses don’t have the resources to make someone solely responsible for security whilst larger businesses can call upon our managed security provisions when their security needs become increasingly complex”.

He continued: “The range of Fortinet’s Unified Threat Management devices provide our customers with advanced AV scanning, content filtering, firewall and anti-spam capabilities. Fortinet’s multi-threat security offerings allow our customers to meet all their current security requirements whilst also being able to satisfy future business security needs.”

“Our alliance with Zen Internet further underlines how Fortinet’s UTM platform is ideally suited to the Managed Security Market,” said Jonathan Mepsted, regional director Fortinet UK, Ireland and South Africa. “The protection offered by FortiGate devices allows Zen to provide its customers with a proactive service – Zen’s investment in Fortinet’s FortiManager management consoles also enable them to make quick changes to customer’s security policies and facilitate detailed reporting on a range of blocked threats.”
