Masergy’s patented Unified Enterprise Security (UES) with continuous monitoring and incident response offers customers sophisticated cyber-threat management for today’s threat landscape. UES employs advanced machine learning and big data analytics that consumes, normalizes, correlates, and analyzes vast amounts of data to protect against even the most advanced persistent threats.

It can be integrated with customers existing security appliances or work in standalone mode. Since there are no hardware or software licenses, the solution delivers highly effective security at a fraction of the cost of handling internally.
