MetTel Partners with Herjavec Group for Enhanced Security Solutions Aug 19, 2015 New benefits include improved dashboard for security management, protection and monitoring NEW YORK, NY (August 19, 2015) – MetTel, a leading communications solutions provider for enterprise businesses, today announced a strategic partnership with Herjavec Group, a global managed security services provider led by dynamic IT entrepreneur Robert Herjavec. As part of the agreement, MetTel will now benefit from Herjavec Group’s 24/7/365 security coverage, complementing MetTel’s current Security Operations Center (SOC) and supporting its Security Incident Event Monitoring (SIEM) customers. With the increase in security threats showing no sign of slowing, businesses care about protecting confidential assets more than ever before. In order to stay ahead of threats, businesses need to not only respond to known security attacks, but also monitor environments for unknown attacks in order to proactively improve security posture. Working with Herjavec Group and data analytics partner Sumo Logic, MetTel now has access to an enhanced monitoring platform that is available and customizable based on ever-changing security needs through an easy-to-use dashboard. Sumo Logic’s analytics platform delivers continuous security intelligence to simplify and automate compliance and security monitoring, helping MetTel detect and respond to advanced security threats in real-time. “We bring organizations the industry’s most advanced security solutions and we are thrilled to partner with MetTel to deliver on that promise,” said Ira Goldstein, SVP Global Services at Herjavec Group. “Information Security priorities have transformed the way businesses interact with their customers. Through our global reach and experience, we are able to help MetTel continue to meet their security needs by implementing controls for PCI compliance, driving risk management and supporting incident response.” “Telecommunications infrastructures today are increasingly complex as companies look beyond the phone lines toward creating a holistic and secure IT environment for all communication formats,” said Andoni Economou, COO of MetTel. “Partnering with Herjavec Group will provide our teams with access to advanced security solutions to ensure unified communication tools and the data exchanged between disparate platforms are continually managed, monitored and logged for threats and breaches.” This partnership is part of MetTel’s continued expansion to provide a wide array of new IT and managed security solutions, offering customers a one-stop-shop with flexible options to meet all of their business needs. In September 2014, MetTel acquired Thrive Networks to boost its IT solutions and strengthen its managed service offerings. The company’s growing suite of services includes network management and monitoring, virtualization solutions and data protection, in addition to cloud-based email, file sharing and data back-up services.
