HughesON Secure Connectivity Service delivers industry-leading security and PCI compliance in one easy-to-deploy platform

Germantown, MD, Oct. 2, 2018 Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), a leading provider of managed network services, today introduced HughesON™ Secure Connectivity Service (SCS), an affordable network solution for small- to medium-sized businesses. HughesON SCS is a secure firewall solution that comes complete with a plug-and-play router, continuous network management, 24/7 support, available 4G backup and optional PCI compliance software. The solution is optimized for performance and network security regardless of the type of broadband connection.

“HughesON SCS gives businesses of all sizes and any number of locations a robust managed firewall solution on par with the largest enterprise-grade networks,” said Mike Tippets, vice president of enterprise marketing at Hughes. “More and more businesses today are depending on cloud-based applications and in need of a managed security system. With this offering we’re bringing franchise and unbranded locations all the benefits of state-of-the-industry security and the peace-of-mind of comprehensive Hughes support – at less cost than an IT department to try and manage it all.”

Based on their security needs and budgets, customers can select from a number of HughesON SCS solutions, each including a managed firewall platform and with optional 4G backup. The latest solution is based on the newly released Hughes HR4860 Gateway, a distributed, edge-based device that combines broadband optimization and strong security capabilities.
