SecurePoP® offers professional protection against Internet attacks

02 May 2000

The global expansion of the Internet and intranet has lead to an increase in the number of network-managed systems. New applications and business transactions made over the Internet mean that security demands are high. With SecurePoP®, Swisscom is able to guarantee secure Internet access.

Many companies are asking themselves how they can protect their sensitive data and applications from access by unauthorised persons. In order to guarantee effective and sustainable protection, security systems such as firewalls must be regularly maintained and appropriately updated. This work is time-consuming and requires particular specialist knowledge.

SecurePoP® from Swisscom is a service that is able to guarantee secure Internet access. SecurePoP® connects corporate networks to the Internet; the dedicated firewall, housed in a secure Swisscom environment, forms the key component of the security solution.

This means that customers can concentrate on their core business and let Swisscom take care of security matters. The Swisscom security team provides optimum round-the-clock monitoring and maintenance of a company´s firewall. Customers do not have to invest huge sums or provide training for their own security personnel.

Customers can retrieve information on the current status of their firewall at any time by means of well-designed on-line services. And the same web interface also enables orders for configuration changes to be conveniently sent to Swisscom security specialists.

SecurePop® is ideal for medium and large-size companies with one or more location that require reliable protection of their sensitive data.
