Virtual Network 

Services - Security

Virtualize security to make your network agile and cost-effective.

Stop threats before they halt your business.

Cyberattacks happen faster than ever before, and often take just minutes to move from breach to compromise. To defend against them, you need to contain an attack immediately—before it can move on to other parts of your network. If your environment is complex and it’s difficult to get clear insight into your network security systems, you may not be able to respond quickly enough.

Our Virtual Network Services (VNS) security solution helps you address these challenges quickly and effectively, with new services set up in days, or even less. By virtualizing network functions, security is easier to manage and less complex to deploy than traditional hardware. And because our global network backbone is so vast, we have access to critical insights that help defend against the latest threats before become serious problems.

What is VNS - Security?

It takes constant monitoring and analysis to keep your organization out of harm’s way. Virtualizing your network security functions is the first line of defense, but it’s only effective if managed the right way. Our virtualization security solution delivers full-service management to keep you ahead of network threats.

How does VNS - Security work?

VNS - Security uses network segmentation and micro-segmentation to help limit exposure across your infrastructure. Through this approach, connections between different parts of your virtual network are limited. So, if outside threats gain access to your network, the affected area is isolated, helping contain the breach.
