Use Cases

Staying Ahead of Advanced Threats

As technology becomes more advanced, so do the security threats businesses face. Most organizations today deploy a Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) solution to proactively measure and monitor threat management. This allows them to obtain an accurate and centralized view of their organization’s security positioning and advanced reporting of both possible and real security incidents.



Countering Insider Security Breaches

The detection of an insider threat is essential to the protection of a network. According to reports from the Information Security Forum (ISF), more than 30% of attacks can be traced and sourced back to some insider in the organization. CenturyLink’s Managed Security Services Portal delivers a broad tool set combined with expert analysis to counter security threats, regardless of their source.



Digital Transformation vs. IT Security

To remain competitive in a rapidly-changing market, organizations must welcome change. They must find solutions to maintain pace without compromising the security of their data and network. All of this is part of Digital Transformation – the good and the bad. CenturyLink’s Managed Security Services Portal is a powerful enabling tool for rapid transformation while minimizing risk.




“CenturyLink can deliver Managed Security Services at a 62% lower cost than hiring a full-time employee — assuming you can find one with the appropriate skill set.”

— Doug Cahill, Enterprise Strategy Group
