SentryBay teams up with Managed Services Centre (MSC) to target financial services and government sectors
First managed services partnership will address risks of online fraud and malware.
- (1888PressRelease) September 15, 2010 - LONDON, UK - Security software specialist SentryBay today announced its first service partnership with Managed Services Centre (MSC), the IT managed services specialist. The partnership will provide a proactive managed data and fraud protection service to the financial services and international government sectors.
The service will be built around SentryBay's suite of leading edge security products, including its Enterprise Data Protection Suite (DPS) and Secure Access System (SAS), and is effective from September 2010.
The SentryBay Enterprise DPS complements traditional anti-virus solutions that have weaknesses against real-time malware threats. By overlaying existing solutions and providing real-time protection of all data entered online, the DPS protects against online fraud and identity theft. Its management console also provides unparalleled visibility of the security profile of each PC.
The SentryBay Secure Access System (SAS) provides ultra-secure protection against the biggest online threats facing financial services organisations that depend upon reliable, secure remote access to their systems. SAS provides a two-way authenticated connection using its own secure browser - all within three seconds. This two (or three) factor authentication solution can be deployed as software-only - making this highest level of security accessible to even personal banking customers - simply and inexpensively.
SentryBay's solutions are unique in that they not only address online banking fraud but also Card-Not-Present and Application fraud.
Dave Waterson, Chief Executive Officer, SentryBay said: "We are delighted to sign this new partnership with MSC, which provides an excellent range of services to its clients, including its proactive web security solution, MSCprotect. We chose to work with MSC because of its high quality reputation and its focus on similar market sectors to ours, notably financial services. Our software and MSC's services are highly complementary."
Mark Mottershead, Managing Director at MSC said: 'We have been looking for a solution that would complete the circle of trust services that we have already deployed to several building societies and other organisations within the UK. SentryBay offers a complete solution that the user does not need to worry about, but is totally protected by. Working closely with SentryBay, we have achieved our goal of offering these services as a Managed Security Solution to our customers, so the headache of ensuring the support of such a solution is taken away from the enterprise and totally managed by MSC on their behalf.'
