Transcending Standard Email and DNS Security to Catch the Most Dangerous Malicious Threats
Most email antivirus programmes catch on average only 45 percent of cyber criminal activity, leaving companies open to risks like phishing, bots, and other social engineering techniques. CenturyLink® Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) complements the cybersecurity posture of your company and provides additional protection of your sensitive information and intellectual property against unauthorised access, exploitation, or data exfiltration.
This powerful service was originally built for government entities and critical infrastructure companies, but is now available to US-based Public and Private entities.
CenturyLink has been a provider of ECS since the beginning of the government programme in April of 2011.
CenturyLink is currently one of only two CSPs fully approved by the Department of Homeland Security to offer ECS.
As of July 2014, CenturyLink is the leading CSP approved to provide ECS to all critical infrastructure entities.
CenturyLink is the only provider that has received an Authority to Operate (ATO) similar service for governments.
CenturyLink provides similar ECS protections for approximately 750,000 U.S. Government Federal Civilian end-users under the Einstein 3 Accelerated (E3A) programme.

HOW IT WORKS _____
ECS augments, but does not replace your existing cybersecurity capabilities. Through the use of threat indicators, CenturyLink provides ECS customers with network-based inbound email filtering that neutralizes dangerous email strings or attachments, notifies network administrators, and prevents harmful code from becoming embedded into an organisation's IT infrastructure. The company also provides ECS customers with Domain Name System (DNS) protection and notifications, which prevents users from accessing malicious DNS sites and provides protection from infected machines establishing command-and-control links to external entities.
