Businesses – especially large multinational companies – rely heavily on data center services. With practically everyone depending on technology to carry on their businesses, this is but part of the natural progression of things. Of course, there is always the issue of security; and that’s where entities like Secode AB come into the picture. Secode AB is a company that specializes in managed security services, or MSS. As a matter of fact, they have been at the forefront of this industry in Europe for many years. They’re known for providing high quality managed data center service, and earlier this month, another big player entered the playing field. NTT Communications, which is definitely one of the most recognizable names in the world of technology, communication, management solutions, etc., has acquired Secode AB. The acquisition was announced earlier this month, although the exact terms have not been released to the public. What is important is that northern European customers who have a great need for security services for data centers will be enjoying the benefits that both companies can offer. With all the resources of NTT backing Secode AB up, businesses operating in northern Europe can be more assured of 24/7 services to deal with the ever present security threats. Some areas that are covered include intrusion detection and prevention, log management, vulnerability analysis, data-loss prevention, anti-virus and anti-spam, managed VPN/firewall, and mobile security.
This development is sure to be welcomed with open arms by concerned parties all over Europe.? Current Secode SEO Trygve Reinertsen will continue to head the new subsidiary.
