Conceptunet Partners with Phoenix Managed Networks to Launch Managed Security Division

Partnership provides IT network and cable services provider with the ability to offer customers data protection and PCI compliance

LONDON, August 27, 2014 Phoenix Managed Networks, provider of PhoeniXSentry, an easily deployed and extremely affordable cloud-based network security and management service, today announced a new partnership with Conceptunet, a provider of secure, robust, unobtrusive and problem free IT network and cabling services. As a result of the partnership, Conceptunet has launched a managed services division specializing in PCI security compliance.

With more businesses relying on data infrastructure, they are increasingly looking for a single source to provide comprehensive solutions for broadband, data cabling, EPOS installations, WiFi and IT security. And, with the growing number of network and POS breaches, they want to know that sensitive data is both protected and meeting compliance requirements. The partnership with Phoenix Managed Networks will give Conceptunet customers a complete end-to-end managed security service and the peace of mind that their data is secure and compliant.

“In recent years, we’ve seen the IT infrastructure become an increasingly integral and complex part of the modern business operation, especially in industries such as retail, health care, food services and others,” said Dan Taylor, sales manager for Conceptunet. “Retailers of all sizes struggle with data security and meeting PCI compliance requirements. By partnering with Phoenix Managed Networks, we can remove the burden of compliance and provide customers with a low cost end-to-end service that meets all of their IT and security needs.”

PhoeniXSentry is a managed network and security service that is easy to deploy and manage. The cloud based service protects sensitive information – such as debit and credit card data, health information and other sensitive and personal data – on a 24/7/365 basis, without requiring any work on the part of the end user. As the world’s first PCI DSS Level 1-certified network security service, PhoeniXSentry ensures all businesses under its protection meet their PCI compliance requirements.

“This is an exciting partnership that will allow Conceptunet to enhance its current offering by adding the benefits of 24/7/365 managed network security and PCI compliance for debit and credit card transactions,” said Alan Stephenson-Brown, Senior Vice-President, International Sales and Business Development for Phoenix Managed Networks. “The reality is that any business today that relies on the Internet to conduct business can’t ignore the potential for a data breach and as a leader in IT networks and services, the team at Conceptunet recognizes that need and is now able to provide customers with a strong, reliable security solution.”
