Spark is offering a suite of managed security services to businesses, based on those provided to government agencies under Telecommunications as a Service (TaaS) panel contract.
The head of Spark Security, Josh Bahlman, said “there is a real demand in the New Zealand market to consume a security offering just like the one we originally built for Government agencies under TaaS. “Cyber threat is a top concern for Kiwi enterprises, expanding our offering provides businesses with the best possible defence in depth model.”
According to Bahlman “There are a range of game-changing benefits a business will receive under managed security services, including a rapid increase in security maturity, the ability to pick and choose services with a simple pricing construct per month, as well as being able to leverage global intelligence feeds that detect and respond to threats before they have an impact on the business.”
Services available will include secure internet, secure application publishing, secure managed firewall, secure messaging and remote access.
Spark says customers will gain full oversight of ICT security with security management services, which include security incident and event management and incident response as a service.
