The real-time data security software from SentryBay has been selected for use by the Managed Services Centre (MSC).

In its first service partnership, SentryBay will provide a proactive managed data and fraud protection service to the financial and international government sectors. It said that the service will be built around SentryBay's suite of security products, including its enterprise data protection suite and secure access system.

Mark Mottershead, managing director at MSC, said: “We have been looking for a solution that would complete the circle of trust services that we have already deployed to several building societies and other organisations within the UK. SentryBay offers a complete solution that the user does not need to worry about, but is totally protected by.

“Working closely with SentryBay, we have achieved our goal of offering these services as a managed security solution to our customers, so the headache of ensuring the support of such a solution is taken away from the enterprise and totally managed by MSC on their behalf.”

Dave Waterson, CEO of SentryBay, said: “We are delighted to sign this new partnership with MSC, which provides an excellent range of services to its clients, including its proactive web security solution, MSCprotect. We chose to work with MSC because of its high quality reputation and its focus on similar market sectors to ours, notably financial services.”
