Consolidated Communications Launches On-site Secure

Company expands its security service to offer a fully managed, on-premise security platform

MATTOON, Ill., Jan. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consolidated Communications Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNSL), a leading broadband and business communications provider, today announced the launch of On-site Secure, a fully-managed, highly-available security offering that addresses the most sophisticated security threats with industry-leading technology. Consolidated's On-site Secure uniquely integrates next-generation firewall capabilities, advanced endpoint protection and threat intelligence, providing customers with a greater sense of control over their networks, along with increased network visibility.

"On-site Secure features state-of-the-art security and is ideal for businesses that have a need or preference for an on-premise solution," said Doug Abolt, vice president of commercial product marketing at Consolidated Communications. "On-site Secure proactively guards against an ever-growing list of innovative attacks that put critical data and applications at-risk, freeing up IT resources from spending valuable time on security infrastructure work."

On-site Secure has four core feature sets that work together to safely enable applications and users, while preventing threats that impact business continuity. The next-generation security platform inspects all traffic on the customer's network — including applications, threats and content while proactively identifying malicious attempts to damage networks.

"This security solution reduces response times to incidents, mitigates end-user downtime and decreases security operation costs for businesses," added Abolt.
