Calix | July 15, 2022

Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) announced today that Chariton Valley Telephone Corporation (Chariton Valley) expects to double its customer connections after providing ProtectIQ® home network security to all customers at no cost. Chariton Valley leverages the full power of Calix Revenue EDGE to transform its value proposition and improve the customer experience. In May, the 70-year-old broadband service provider (BSP) launched ProtectIQ, part of Calix Revenue EDGE Suites, as it continues to roll out GigaSpire® BLAST systems across its Midwestern communities. In a climate of increased cybersecurity concerns, Chariton Valley has equipped all GigaSpire BLAST customers with effortless access to robust home network security. In doing so, the BSP increases customer loyalty across rural regions and nearby cities in north-central and northeast Missouri. Many Chariton Valley customers have sophisticated internet habits—half identify as gamers and almost 40 percent work from home. By evolving its value proposition, the innovative BSP has also fortified itself against billion-dollar market cap competition in Palmyra and Hannibal. In its first two months of offering ProtectIQ to all customers, Chariton Valley blocked more than 48,000 web threats, intrusions, malware, and viruses from entering home networks—proving the immediate value of its investments.

Both ProtectIQ and ExperienceIQ are accessed through the BSP’s branded subscriber-facing mobile app, built on CommandIQ®, giving customers more control over their home networks.

Now their marketing team can quickly identify the right people for the new service. This enables Chariton Valley to get maximum ROI from every dollar invested in marketing. “As a member-owned organization, the customer experience informs everything we do,” said Kirby J. Underberg, president and chief executive officer at Chariton Valley. “Chariton Valley is committed to the region’s future—the investment we made building a secure fiber network will benefit people living in north-central and northeast Missouri for the next three decades.

Additionally, Calix is launching two new managed offerings this summer: social media monitoring (Bark) and connected device protection (Servify Care). “Chariton Valley’s incredible first two months offering ProtectIQ to all customers underlines why today’s successful broadband business must be about more than just fast Wi-Fi, ProtectIQ has helped BSPs of all sizes block millions of digital threats in 2022. The Missouri-based market leader competes against a billion-dollar market cap company and wins because it leverages the full power of the Revenue EDGE platform to easily and quickly launch turnkey, managed offerings like ProtectIQ that improve the customer experience.

Deloitte Launches Zero Trust Access, a New Managed Security Service

Deloitte | July 12, 2022

To help organizations adopt zero trust more quickly and efficiently, Deloitte is launching a new managed service – Zero Trust Access— that offers a cloud-native approach to securing communications between users, on any device, and enterprise applications, wherever they may reside. The Zero Trust concept commits to removing implicit trust within an information technology (IT) ecosystem and replacing it with a risk-based approach to accessing organizational resources across identities, workloads, data, networks and devices. This trend is gaining momentum, given legacy approaches to security architecture are no longer suitable to secure the ubiquitous nature of the modern enterprise. Part of the newly expanded Zero Trust by Deloitte, Zero Trust Access facilitates zero trust adoption and the evolving needs of organizations in protecting their applications, infrastructure, and data. Following the integration of recently acquired talent and technology into existing Deloitte services, the Zero Trust Access managed service connects users to applications through a frictionless cloud-native solution that is inherently scalable, resilient, agile, and secure. Further, the managed service is available standalone, integrated with other Deloitte offerings, or as part of a broader solution leveraging technologies from Deloitte's alliances ecosystem. "As perimeter-based approaches are no longer suitable to secure the modern enterprise, many organizations are working to enhance protection for their IT ecosystems via zero trust. "Zero Trust Access was built as a turnkey managed service helping ourselves and our clients accelerate adoption of this transformative security framework. Our goal was to create a cost-effective solution that can be delivered standalone or complementary to a broader ecosystem and ultimately help decrease the burden on IT and security teams who likely need to manage multiple heterogenous solutions to achieve similar outcomes." Andrew Rafla, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory's zero trust offering leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP With innovative data protection leveraging device-level secure microcontainer technology, Zero Trust Access helps protect infrastructure while also enabling organizations to protect sensitive enterprise data and enforce least privilege through dynamic access control to enterprise assets. The managed service can replace remote access solutions inclusive of virtual private network (VPN), virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and desktop as a service (DaaS), all of which typically require significant capital expenditure for infrastructure, high operating costs, and technology management overhead. Zero Trust Access includes features such as ephemeral connectivity built upon secure peer-to-peer (P2P) communication, conditional access and continuous authorization, as well as robust data protection for data at-rest, in-use, and in-transit are consistently applied to each session, regardless of the type or location of the applications being accessed (e.g., legacy hosted applications, software as a service (SaaS), thick-client, web-based applications). Implementation of Zero Trust Access can help organizations leverage outcome-based solutions that improve business agility, enhance user productivity, and reduce cost and complexity of security operations. "Beginning zero trust adoption isn't simple, fast or easy for most organizations," Deborah Golden, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "We're launching Zero Trust Access as the first in many adoption-enabling services and solutions to come, so that our clients are better able to modernize their security programs, enable agile operations and confidently advance with emerging technologies and transformative risk management principles that can build more resilient security practices." About Deloitte Deloitte provides industry-leading audit, consulting, tax and advisory services to many of the world's most admired brands, including nearly 90% of the Fortune 500® and more than 7,000 private companies. Our people come together for the greater good and work across the industry sectors that drive and shape today's marketplace — delivering measurable and lasting results that help reinforce public trust in our capital markets, inspire clients to see challenges as opportunities to transform and thrive, and help lead the way toward a stronger economy and a healthier society.
