While most businesses look outside their walls when assessing their cybersecurity stance, the greater risk to enterprise security is lack of visibility across hybrid network environments. With the traditional network perimeter erased by hybrid networking and an ever-growing mobile workforce, the ability to identify and mitigate threats has never been more vital. To help enterprises address the often-overlooked threats within their networks, CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) is enhancing its Security Log Monitoring solution with correlated threat intelligence, new cloud security monitoring features and a real-time mobile application for rapid threat detection and response.
“Enterprises today cannot afford gaps in their ability to see and stop evolving cyberthreats,” said Christina Richmond, program vice president for IDC's Security Services research practice. “It’s imperative they find the right balance between evaluating external threats and those that lurk within their internal ecosystems, including a myriad of network devices and cloud services.”
“Most businesses pay little mind to the security risks within their hybrid environments – from their premises and their cloud workloads to their remote employees,” said Chris Richter, vice president of global security services for CenturyLink. “Security Log Monitoring offers customers a single view into their dispersed network environments and delivers actionable intelligence to address internal threats without opening the floodgates of false positive alerts.”
