of IntelliSecurity, Verio is positioned for continued
growth as a provider of managed security services, working
with industry-leading partners such as Internet Security
By utilizing IntelliSecurity, IRM, an
online advertising and marketing firm, has strengthened
its security posture with real-time, 24/7 support and
security intelligence for its high-traffic online business.
Concerned by the threat denial of service attacks could
pose for an online business, IRM wanted to ensure performance
capabilities during high-traffic times. "Verio's
customized protection enables us to modify security
coverage as networking and data needs see fit, all with
guaranteed reliability," said Don Kaplan, director
of marketing for IRM. "To partner with Verio on
the security of our business means that we trust and

these types of risks continue to grow, more businesses
are turning to managed security services to mitigate
the potential impact. According to a 2003 IDC survey,
40 percent of nearly 1,000 IT managers rated security
their highest priority, with security services spending
predicted to grow to $21 billion by 2007.
