CenturyLink Adds Enhanced Cybersecurity Services to Portfolio (CenturyLink)


CenturyLink recently added its Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) product to the company’s General Services Administration (GSA) IT Schedule 70 contract, which is the federal government’s largest and most widely used acquisition vehicle that is also commonly used by state and local governments.

CenturyLink is an approved commercial services provider under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) ECS program, which helps U.S.-based public or private entities protect their IT systems from unauthorized access, breaches and data exfiltration.

ECS provides participating entities with advanced email filtering, domain name system protections and signature-based intrusion prevention security services. It features managed security protections that use government-furnished threat and technical information as well as network traffic patterns indicating known or suspected malicious cyber activity.
