In a business environment that has swiftly migrated to an iterative, continuously evolving model, CenturyLink strives to assist our customers through this digital transformation by providing the tools they need to communicate and thrive in a digital world.
These certifications highlight our ongoing commitment to building robust services and delivering digital transformation to businesses on their cloud journeys. Our commitment to hybrid cloud, our recently enhanced suite of managed services, and the expansion of their availability continue to support today’s businesses as their work and workforces relocate to hybrid cloud.
Customers see this need to digitize their communications infrastructure and services, as well as other business functions, as a means to maintaining their competitive edge. We’ve responded by investing in robust communications solutions and integrating next generation partner technologies into our network; customizing solutions for enterprise, small business and government entities; and making data-intensive applications easier to consume, more reliable and more secure.
With over 450,000 route miles of fiber globally and operations in more than 60 countries, our Adaptive Network is the infrastructure foundation that can deliver virtual and software-defined networking capabilities to our customers, who need us to provide both data transport and the cloud-based infrastructure and platforms to host customer applications. Our hybrid cloud solutions make it easier to manage multi-cloud environments with products like Cloud Application Manager or help reconfigure networks for multi-cloud use cases with Cloud Connect. With Network Management, our senior-level team of experts applies a cloud-inspired method of overlaying agile professional services on top of our management of hybrid IT workloads to optimize architecture and elevate operational governance.
Through our network, we provide comprehensive, end-to-end management with dedicated fully managed services covering hardware, software, installation, monitoring, and 24x7 support. We also meet the stringent security requirements for mitigating today’s sophisticated attacks with high-capacity, regionally distributed scrubbing centers, and combine them with network controls that help reduce latency and maintain performance. Our network footprint and visibility into global traffic flows help us protect customers’ data and applications by scrubbing malicious traffic, enabling services like DDoS mitigation, and providing Threat Intelligence so the network, as well as the applications on it, run more seamlessly and securely.
Our Managed Services provide flexibility and agility inspired by cloud methodology, and heightened governance and oversight allow us to address the need for an IT services model built on continuous improvement through design guidance, installation, and management.
We help remove business risk by offering managed and co-managed solutions that provide customers the tools, technology and expertise they need to maintain business agility. Advanced Managed Services is a heightened level of managed services for cloud and hosting services that provides customizable standard services, designated support, and specialized reporting to meet customer needs. It includes Application Lifecycle Management, which provides customers the tools to design, deploy, test, and manage the applications that run their businesses.
Stretching IT budgets, optimizing their network, increasing security, or being able to respond faster to business demands requires a combination of networking and solutions experience that makes CenturyLink a strong partner for enabling customers’ digital transformation needs.
