Computing Security Excellence Awards 2017

CenturyLink are excited to announce that we have been named as the winner of the Managed Security Award in the 2017 Computing Security Excellence Awards. We've been helping businesses around the world to secure their business critical systems, applications and data for a number of years, and see this recognition as a validation of our strategy and services.

Computing Security Excellence Awards 2017

Businesses today need to cope with an ever-increasing number of constantly evolving cyber-attacks and an army of hyper-connected customers, employees, suppliers and partners who expect access to information when they need it, wherever they might be. The combination of increasing threats and the new digital economy creates serious risks for companies - a single security breach can cost millions and do irreparable damage to a company's brand and reputation. So how do businesses satisfactorily address the risk, and in doing so satisfy the Board, when they may lack the internal resources and expertise or the budget required to do this effectively?

Managed Security Services

Companies of all shapes and sizes around the globe trust CenturyLink to secure their infrastructures and advise them on the best way to detect threats, prevent data theft and mitigate against malicious activity. One of the core parts of our managed security service is Security Log Monitoring with Trending and Threat Analysis. This continuously monitors all elements of a customers’ infrastructure, correlates events for meaning, and analyses the outcomes, leveraging a powerful SIEM platform. This gives customers a near-real-time view of what is occurring inside their infrastructure, enabling the detection of threats at the earliest stages, so any damage can be minimised. It also includes advanced asset risk profiling and a risk-based alert process, which combines automation with rigorous human review to better reduce false positives.

We’re very proud to have been recognised as a winner in the Computing Security Excellence Awards 2017 under the Managed Security category. The awards ceremony was a very enjoyable evening at the Hilton London Tower Bridge, filled with luminaries from all over the cyber-security industry. The excitement within the room was palpable as companies eagerly awaited the verdict of the judges, delivered by the well-known comedian and writer, Geoff Norcott.
