Expertise to Secure our Members

Budgets are tightening while security threats are evolving and expanding. KanREN’s suite of Managed Security and Content Services are designed to address both problems by delivering sustainable, predictable costs for dealing with threats from outside and within your campus borders. The suite of services leverages KanREN’s 20+ years of technical expertise to help you focus on more important goals. We’ll take care of the heavy lifting so you can focus on more important things. The bad guys don’t take a day off and neither do we!

Key Components

KanREN’s Managed Security Services leverage existing hardware; thus keeping costs controlled while still delivering the highest quality service to users. For services in the cloud, KanREN leverages F/OSS to further maintain a reasonable cost model.

Your Policy, Expertly Implemented

KanREN’s Managed Security Service is built with the member organization’s needs in mind. We know that each organization is different with its own challenges and policy. KanREN’s staff take time to understand your current policies and implement them using industry best practices. You won’t be treated like a number. You won’t just get a boilerplate configuration. You’ll get a solution tailored to the needs of your users. If you’d like an extra set of eyes or suggestions for policy updates, KanREN’s trained staff is happy to help at no additional cost! Services include:

  • Multi-zone, stateful firewall
  • Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS)
  • Blackhole DNS
  • Network-based Anti-Virus
  • Web content filtering
  • Remote penetration testing and vulnerability scanning
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Mitigation

24×7 Monitoring

All of KanREN’s Managed Security and Content Services are monitored 24×7, 365 days a year by our team of professionals. As new threats trend the KanREN Network Operations Center monitors impact on sites and can either communicate with technical security contacts or take immediate action (if pre-approved). As always, the member organization is in complete control of incident mitigation.
