DALLAS -- Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in managed networking and cloud services, today announced the company has acquired Global DataGuard, Inc. The acquisition enhances Masergy’s existing portfolio of managed services with patented technology that leverages machine learning and expert human intelligence.

“In today's rapidly evolving threat landscape, discrete signature or rule-based security solutions alone are not adequate from a risk management perspective. And as seen in recent news, even when businesses invest in advanced security solutions, the lack of systematic sharing and correlation of subsystem data and vigilant 24/7 monitoring leaves them exposed to advanced threats,” said Masergy’s CEO Chris MacFarland.

“Cyber attacks are only going to become more intense and sophisticated – it’s a new battlefield. The acquisition of Global DataGuard uniquely positions Masergy to deliver solutions engineered to address these advanced persistent threats.”

Masergy’s Security as a Service suite now includes comprehensive enterprise security solutions with Unified Enterprise Security™ and Professional Services.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
