Partnership combines experience in operations, implementation, systems infrastructure and support to deliver world class managed security services
RESTON, VA, October 13, 2015 – Phoenix Managed Networks, a provider of transaction security services, today announced a partnership with US telecommunications service provider D&S Communications, stating the companies will partner to meet the demands of customers needing managed security services and assistance with regulatory compliance such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and others. Phoenix Managed Services provides managed security services under its PhoeniXSentry brand to many of the world’s leading financial institutions and blue chip companies. On October 1st, D&S Communications purchased Mako Networks, one of the underlying technologies supporting the PhoeniXSentry managed security service, and the companies look to complement one another’s offerings going forward. Phoenix will expand D&S’s monitoring and help desk capabilities worldwide, while D&S will provide Phoenix with configuration, logistics and deployment support for Mako systems.
“Increasingly, companies are turning to outside resources to help protect valuable customer data and navigate the complexity of network security,” said Gregory Grant, Senior Director at Phoenix Managed Networks. “With the number of security breaches affecting companies of all sizes, the demand for managed security services has grown tremendously. Partnering with D&S Communications will expand Phoenix’ logistics and deployment capabilities needed to meet that demand and expand our footprint in providing managed security services to a rapidly growing customer base.”
Phoenix Managed Networks provides enterprise-strength security to businesses which lack internal IT, security staff, or are looking to better utilize existing IT/security resources through managed services. Phoenix delivers reliable, cost-effective payment communications, gateway and managed security services to organizations of all sizes. D&S Communications has been providing implementation and logistics services nationwide since 1986, and began supporting Mako Networks as an implementation and logistics partner in early 2014.
“Companies today can’t afford to take a ‘wait and see’ approach to network security and with trusted resources like Phoenix Managed Networks, they don’t have to,” said Jason Kubasak, CEO of D&S Communications. “We are thrilled to partner with Phoenix Managed Networks and look forward to assisting then in bringing their knowledge and industry-leading support to even more customers.”
