Managed service leverages Advanced Malware Protection to provide advanced, always-on threat protection and unencumbered workforce mobility
FORT MILL, S.C. — AUGUST 1, 2018 — CompuCom®, a subsidiary of Office Depot, Inc. (NASDAQ:ODP) and leading provider of managed digital workplace services, today announced the launch of Anti-Malware as a Service (AMaaS), combining powerful endpoint security technologies with CompuCom’s managed security services for always-on device protection – addressing the full lifecycle of the pervasive, advanced malware infecting today’s networks.
Information technology professionals face an increasingly difficult battle to properly secure end-user devices – particularly in this era of bring-your-own-device and the mobile, untethered digital workplace. CompuCom’s AMaaS offering provides the flexibility to protect these endpoints at a single, low monthly price and powered by a best-in-class anti-malware product, Cisco AMP for Endpoints and ThreatGRID®. This is combined with the 24/7 monitoring and remediation services from CompuCom to ensure total support and eliminate threats that infiltrate client systems.
“Our goal is to serve as our clients’ trusted and strategic information security partner,” noted CompuCom Chief Product Officer Ken Jackowitz. “The ability to offer products such as AMaaS not only keeps our clients’ businesses secure and identifies threats before they become problems, but also it means fewer tools for them to manage, and it frees internal technology staff to focus on more strategic projects.”
CompuCom’s AMaaS service preemptively prevents breaches and gives clients visibility into perceived malware in order to prevent, detect and remediate threats if they infiltrate the organization’s front-line defenses. AMaaS accomplishes this in a cost-effective manner, without bogging down the system with a heavyweight application that impacts network efficiency.
AMaaS can be applied to enterprises in any vertical that require technology hardware and services for their employees and end users. Benefits include:
- Comprehensive global threat intelligence: Using AMP for Endpoints, AMaaS combines the industry’s largest collection of real-time threat intelligence with the broadest visibility, the largest footprint and the ability to put it into action across multiple security platforms.
- Scalable and cost-effective, per device fee: With AMaaS, clients can scale up or down as much as necessary and pay a low, per-device monthly fee per endpoint.
- Lightweight and unobtrusive application: AMaaS is provided through a lightweight connector on client endpoints to prevent extensive use of network processing power, meaning that customers benefit from the power of best-in-class malware protection without sacrificing device performance.
