New Zealand’s largest telco Spark is claiming a first with its offering of a suite of high-grade managed security services to businesses, based on the model government agencies under Telecommunications-as-a-Service use today.

According to Spark, the expansion of its service will make it easier than ever before for businesses to purchase scalable security capability as a service.

The telco says services will include secure Internet, secure application publishing, secure managed firewall, secure messaging and remote access, and have the ability to give customers full oversight of ICT security with security management services, which includes security incident and event management as well as incident response as a service.

According to head of Spark Security, Josh Bahlman, there is a real demand in the New Zealand market to consume a security offering just like the one the company originally built for government agencies under TaaS.

“Cyber threat is a top concern for Kiwi enterprises, expanding our offering provides businesses with the best possible defence in depth model,” he said.

Bahlman says digital disruption continues at an unprecedented rate providing numerous new vectors of attack into businesses and, as a result, the nefarious hacking economy is becoming increasingly lucrative and is now a US$500 billion industry.

“Data of all kinds has a dollar value attached to it and, despite a range of end-based customer protection tools, the number of attacks, and the impact of those attacks are still growing.

“As a result of these changes, security is a beast not to be tackled alone. With over 100 security professionals whose focus is 100% security, a strong investment in new security technologies, and the only commercial New Zealand member of FIRST (Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams), Spark can provide extensive access to global threat intelligence sources and provide businesses with high quality protection.”
