Threat Management Service   

Vulnerability scanning of internal servers alongside CenturyLink NIDS or IPS services.

Threat Management is a service that combines internal vulnerability scanning of client servers with correlation of real-time events detected by CenturyLink Managed Network Intrusion Detection Service (NIDS) or Managed Firewall Service with IPS.

The service is available in CenturyLink’s Colocation and Managed Hosting facilities, or on a customer premise.

The standard features of the service consist of installation, configuration, administration, monitoring, maintenance and support of a CenturyLink-provided Vulnerability Scanning Appliance.

CenturyLink provides a dedicated appliance with each instance of the service. The number of scanning appliances required is dependent upon the number of devices to be scanned, the client's network architecture, and the client's security policy.
