Los Angeles (PRWEB) January 15, 2009

Through the partnership, Colocation America can now offer its growing list of customers a complete security program that cost effectively monitors, manages and responds to internal and external network threats in real-time around-the-clock.
Corporate networks have become increasingly more critical to the productivity and profitability of organizations large and small. As enterprises extend these networks to suppliers, remote offices, partners and customers around the world, protecting the critical applications and business information that reside on these networks has become a primary concern of information technology executives worldwide. Colocation America is enhancing its managed security services to enable its customers to focus on their core business instead of monitoring and responding to network disruptions caused by both internal and external attacks, human error and the demands of regulatory compliance.
