BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Crossing (Nasdaq: GLBC), a leading global IP solutions provider, today announced that it has launched its Unified Security Services Portal, which allows the company to track information for customers' Unified Security Services on a single Web interface, in Latin America.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Global Crossing (Nasdaq: GLBC), a leading global IP solutions provider, today announced that it has launched its Unified Security Services Portal, which allows the company to track information for customers' Unified Security Services on a single Web interface, in Latin America.

With the new portal, customers can review — free of charge and in real time — the status of all security components contracted from Global Crossing, interact with specialists from the Security Operation Center (SOC), and access all Information Security-related data that the company offers, including Initial Security, Content Security, Advanced Security, and Professional Services. Customers can download SOC-generated reports, generate solution activity reports in real time, review updated information on open and closed tickets, download vulnerability analysis reports and completed penetration tests, view early warning alerts and lists of SOC-managed equipment, access the Global Crossing security newsletter, and research Global Crossing Security Solutions services.

The Unified Portal was designed around four essential concepts: — Multi-language: The portal automatically adapts to the native language of each user, whether English, Spanish and Portuguese. — Multi-platform: The site interacts transparently with all SOC-supported technologies, including Juniper, Cisco, ISS, Checkpoint and AV+AS, among others. — Multi-system: The portal is accessible via Windows, Unix, and Linux platforms. — Multi-regulation: The portal complies with audit requirements for standards such as ISO 27001.

"This launch of the Unified Security Portal is a very important breakthrough for our Security Solutions portfolio. We're confident that the portal will become a differentiator that our customers will appreciate," said Juan Carlos Martinez, Global Crossing's senior vice president for data centers, security and outsourcing in Latin America. "Whether launching our Security Operation Center in Latin America or our Professional Services suite, we aim to stay a step ahead of customers' Information Security needs."

The Unified Portal has been incorporated as an added benefit for all of Global Crossing's security services at no additional cost and is currently used by more than 1,400 active customers throughout Latin America.
