Tuesday 6 March 2018 | 16:28 CET | News

European operator Claranet announced an expansion of its security services portfolio with partners Fortinet, Citrix and Guardian360. Customers can choose from three modules: Protection & control, Scanning & testing, and Awareness & expertise. 

The first module is designed to provide 24-7 protection of IT infrastructure. Products include managed firewalls on the basis of FortiGate, web acceleration and DDoS protection, and anti-virus protection from Symantec. The desktop tools Citrix ShareFile and Enterprise Mobility + Security from Microsoft have also been added to the range. 

The Scan & test option evaluates whether the current technical situation performs in line with target and offers sufficient security. The Vulnerability Scanner, based on the security platform from Guardian360, includes eight different network and platforms scanners that search out vulnerabilities in the corporate network and applications. The second element is the Claranet Security Test, where ethical hackers test the network in simulations. 

The last module aims to raise awareness among staff. According to Claranet, some 90 percent of security incidents are due to human error. As many of these errors are down to ignorance, the company aims to help companies improve their internal expertise.
