NEW YORK & BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NTT America, a global infrastructure services provider and wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, and Integralis, a global provider of IT security and information risk management solutions, today announced an ongoing partnership to provide global enterprises with secure, high performance, streamlined and cost-effective use of cloud computing. NTT America brings virtualized global data centers and high speed networks to enterprise cloud computing, while Integralis offers comprehensive Managed Security Solutions (MSS) to form a complete cloud computing solution for enterprises. Integralis will be available to discuss its security approach at the RSA Conference 2012 in San Francisco, February 27 – March 1, in booth #657.
Global enterprises interested in the potential of cost efficiencies available from moving to the cloud have faced two major hurdles: the intensity of the security requirements needed for mission critical applications and data, as well as the unwillingness to abandon current and often substantial investments in legacy systems. By leveraging the significant investments in the infrastructure assets of NTT Group, NTT America and Integralis provide one of the only options for global enterprises to enjoy the economics of the cloud in a secure and organized fashion.
“Our experience in managed security services has provided us with insights on the requirements and process needed to ensure success in full cloud deployment,” said Michala Hart, director, global alliances, Integralis. “Together with NTT America, we give customers a clear understanding of their options, use our expertise to provide the ability to outsource security in a cost effective way and finally provide a plan that protects brands, assets and investments in current systems.”
“Tightly integrating managed security services into our data center services allows us to make cloud computing a reality for large global enterprises,” said Doug McMaster, vice president, Data Center Services, NTT America. “Working in partnership with Integralis enables us to bring not only a complete and cost-effective solution to enterprise-level cloud implementations, but to do so in a way that causes the least disruption to IT staff and budgets.”
Both NTT America and Integralis are business entities within the NTT Communications Group. This joint effort keeps MSS tightly integrated with NTT America’s data centers resulting in increased security, minimized risk and greater compliance. In addition, our effort expands to best use of sister company capabilities including Dimension Data and NTT DATA group companies.
Management Platform and Security Devices Integration – Management platforms and security devices are located within NTT America’s data centers ensuring faster response times. New Designated Security Operations Center (SOC) – Integralis established and runs a SOC at NTT America’s data center with a team of on-site staff, providing quick response to manage and monitor customers’ security devices. Device/Product Independence – Both companies choose the best device, product and technology based on customers’ needs and are not tied to specific vendors. Full Suite of Professional Services – Together, NTT America and Integralis now offer a complete suite of professional services, including security audits, penetration testing and vulnerability assessments, to meet the security and compliance requirements of today’s enterprises.
Working together to educate customers and find solutions to emerging threats brought on by new technology and globalization, Integralis and NTT America will host a VIP Security Seminar on March 30, 2012 in San Jose, CA.
