Denver, CO – ViaWest, a leading hybrid colocation provider in North America, announces the launch of its thought leadership webinar series focused on IT security aimed at helping businesses mitigate risk and protect against data breaches. The webinar series, entitled ‘The State of Corporate Security: How to Survive in the Age of Cyberattacks’ addresses security topics specific to certain industries including energy, financial services, SaaS providers and e-commerce retail. Participants will learn about a variety of security-related topics including: security developments during the past year; IT infrastructure protection; costs associated with a data breach; common missteps to avoid and best practices.

Newsweek reported that the number of cyberattacks per day will be in the six-figure range in 2015, and as reported by Ponemon Institute, it costs small companies with less than 100 employees $3.5 million to recover from a cyberattack. ViaWest collaborates with clients and offers a full portfolio of security services and products built to assist with business protection, address the ever-changing threat landscape, and gain peace of mind knowing their IT infrastructure is in an environment engineered for security.

“Proactively addressing our customers IT and business needs, we’ve created several security bundles, designed to simplify how our customers secure information and assist them with mitigating their risk,” states Jason Carolan, Chief Technology Officer for ViaWest. “With our expertise in IT security coupled with our fully compliant colocation and cloud services and dedicated compliance team, we equip our clients with multiple ways to solve critical business issues and to ensure their IT environments are secure and always available.”

In response to customer demand, ViaWest recently introduced three security product bundles, Network Protection, Perimeter Network Protection, and Compliant Network Protection, packaging its most popular security products in a manner that is easy for customers to consume. ViaWest’s next security webinar will be held on June 10, 2015 at 11am MDT and features Phil Bice, Security Specialist from BAE Systems, a global defense, aerospace and security company, and Scott Young, Solutions Engineer from ViaWest. Attendees will learn about the current state of security; unique threats to the oil, gas and energy industry; who targets oil and gas companies and how they do it; actions to stay more secure; and how to implement a framework for security for your business.
