Information technology professionals face an increasingly difficult
battle to properly secure end-user devices – particularly in this era of
bring-your-own-device and the mobile, untethered digital workplace.
CompuCom's AMaaS offering provides the flexibility to protect these
endpoints at a single, low monthly price and powered by a best-in-class
anti-malware product, Cisco AMP for Endpoints and ThreatGRID®. This is
combined with the 24/7 monitoring and remediation services from CompuCom
to ensure total support and eliminate threats that infiltrate client

"Our goal is to serve as our clients' trusted and strategic information
security partner," noted CompuCom Chief Product Officer Ken Jackowitz.
"The ability to offer products such as AMaaS not only keeps our clients'
businesses secure and identifies threats before they become problems,
but also it means fewer tools for them to manage, and it frees internal
technology staff to focus on more strategic projects."

CompuCom's AMaaS service preemptively prevents breaches and gives
clients visibility into perceived malware in order to prevent, detect
and remediate threats if they infiltrate the organization's front-line
defenses. AMaaS accomplishes this in a cost-effective manner, without
bogging down the system with a heavyweight application that impacts
network efficiency.

AMaaS can be applied to enterprises in any vertical that require
technology hardware and services for their employees and end users.
Benefits include:

  • Comprehensive global threat intelligence: Using AMP for
    Endpoints, AMaaS combines the industry's largest collection of
    real-time threat intelligence with the broadest visibility, the
    largest footprint and the ability to put it into action across
    multiple security platforms.
  • Scalable and cost-effective, per device fee: With AMaaS,
    clients can scale up or down as much as necessary and pay a low,
    per-device monthly fee per endpoint.
  • Lightweight and unobtrusive application: AMaaS is provided
    through a lightweight connector on client endpoints to prevent
    extensive use of network processing power, meaning that customers
    benefit from the power of best-in-class malware protection without
    sacrificing device performance.
