Managed security and collaboration services provider Fusion Connect has launched a comprehensive security offering with a new endpoint management and security service. The new portfolio helps organizations better understand the complete picture of their security risks and take action to mitigate them. It allows businesses to identify, control and secure devices and applications. This comes at a time when security threats continue to disrupt companies globally.

The portfolio provides a complete solution that secures against threats, Fusion Connect said. The security offering hunts for unknown vulnerabilities that can upend a business from managing network components. It does so with advanced edge security for unified threat management (UTM) and remote access VPN to device level management.

Filling the Gaps


Fusion Connect’s Ken Morford

Ken Morford is vice president of security at Fusion Connect.

“Heavier workloads, unfilled positions and security employee burnout are making things especially chaotic in cybersecurity,” Morford said. “With cyberattacks becoming more common, more sophisticated and more costly, businesses need to quickly fill gaps and stop just simply firefighting. Using artificial intelligence and strategic managed services partners are ways to ensure organizations are protected and can mitigate threats before the attack occurs. And that’s what our latest offering addresses.”

Here’s our most recent list of new products and services that agents, VARs, MSPs and other partners offer.

Additionally, the portfolio helps organizations improve reaction time to threats, connecting and securing any element in the organization’s environment. The centralized platform enables enterprises to take swift action, the company said. It provides a wide range of capabilities to improve IT efficiency and security hygiene.

Fusion Connect’s enhanced security measures come at a time when a massive talent shortage persists globally. The size of the cybersecurity workforce is 65% below what it needs to be, according to the company.

Fusion Connect plans to continue expanding its comprehensive security portfolio to empower CISOs to gain the control, visibility and speed. These can thwart cyber threats and keep networks and organizations secure.
