CSC Expands Availability of Its Most Advanced Security Services to Help Clients Deter Sophisticated Threats08:00 EDT Tuesday, March 27, 2012 FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Business Wire) -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) for the first time will offer its Managed Security Services, including its most advanced capabilities, on a stand-alone basis to help clients better address the continually escalating threat environment. Delivered through the company's around-the-globe Security Operations Centers, CSC Managed Security Services now offer every organization convenient access to enhanced core security along with risk-appropriate options for advanced malware protection, global threat intelligence, situational awareness and governance risk and compliance support. Whether delivered as a discrete solution or as part of a larger IT outsourcing agreement, the offering includes balanced security packages that enable clients to gain tailored cyber protection while successfully meeting challenges posed by reduced security budgets, limited skilled resources and tightening regulatory mandates. Now available for a much wider range of client organizations, the proven offering reflects CSC's enterprise-level managed services experience, unique expertise across both public- and private-sector security environments and record of strengthening cyber security for some of the world's largest intelligence organizations. As one of the only vendor-independent managed security services providers (MSSPs) for mid-market and large enterprises, the company is well-positioned to integrate the best available tools from a broad spectrum of leading vendors with its own intellectual property to create a uniquely comprehensive and flexible security offering for this growing market. According to “The Forrester Wave™: Managed Security Services, North America, Q1 2012,” published by Forrester Research, Inc., on March 23, 2012, “today's economic environment and mutating threat landscape are forcing CISOs to consider alternatives to simply insourcing information security. MSSPs leverage impressive economies of scale to offer clients an enhanced security environment, cost-effective security, and a scalable and flexible security platform capable of handling future expansion.” Recognized as a “Leader” in “The Forrester Wave™: Managed Security Services, North America, Q1 2012,” CSC designed its Managed Security Services portfolio around a flexible, “tiered” approach that helps organizations access security with low risk, stage their evolution over time toward the most effective posture addressing the complexity of today's threat-and-compliance environment and better align spending to their specific needs. “Organizations do not have a single risk profile — some aspects of their business are lower risk while others are of extremely high value and require the most advanced protection available,” says Carlos Solari, CSC vice president of Cybersecurity Technology and Services. “Traditionally, managed security services providers have applied the same level of security across an enterprise resulting in either too much cost in protecting lower value assets or not enough security where it is really needed. Our services tiers enable our clients to buy risk appropriate coverage, from enhanced core services to the most advanced and elevated state-of-the-art cyber protection.” About CSC Cybersecurity CSC provides enterprise-class cybersecurity services that have evolved from over 35 years experience in some of the world's most sophisticated, disparate and challenging environments.
