Targeted toward firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs), the services are designed to protect small and mid-sized companies from dynamic online risks including hackers and spammers. They are based on WatchGuard’s LiveSecurity for MSS security system, providing 24-hour monitoring, remote configuration, incident response and system updates, the companies said.
“LiveSecurity for MSS is a proven managed security solution that adds to our growing portfolio of value-added, enhanced Internet service offerings,” said Buddy Cunningham, vice president of sales and marketing for Verio.
“Managed security complements our diverse range of Web hosting, e-commerce and high-speed Internet access products and helps strengthen our position as a leading one-stop source for companies that want to take full advantage of the Internet.”
The MSS packages are available with a variety of value-added options and range in price from $895 a month for the standard plan to $1,295 a month for the premium plan. All packages include free hardware rental.
