February 20, 2020
CenturyLink on Thursday launched Rapid Threat Defense, its new network-based threat detection and response capability.
Rapid Threat Defense aims to help enterprises automate threat detection and response by deploying defensive actions based on Black Lotus Labs threat intelligence. It is available via adaptive threat intelligence and adaptive network security – CenturyLink’s cloud-delivered firewall platform – upon its launch.
Rapid Threat Defense will be integrated with managed premises firewalls and secure SD-WAN later in 2020.
Garrett Gee, CenturyLink’s channel chief, tells Channel Partners security continues to be a critical area for his company’s partners as they look to help their customers manage an increasingly complicated threat landscape.

“With Rapid Threat Defense, we are providing our partners with [a] threat detection and response capability at the network level, and a service where customers can set policies based on their particular needs,” he said. “This new capability aligns with our goal to make security as simple as possible for today’s digital businesses.”
Rapid Threat Defense reduces the workload imposed on security incident responders and analysts to detect and respond to daily threats, according to CenturyLink. It offers a “seamless security experience” for customers struggling to integrate disparate security systems.
“We have simplified how enterprises secure their networks with the creation of an automated software-based capability that identifies and stops malicious traffic before it puts our customers at risk,” said Chris Smith, CenturyLink’s vice president of global security services. “Rapid Threat Defense is the seamless integration between security and the network to protect applications and data by disrupting the security threats that we face today, and more importantly, those we will face tomorrow.”
