SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced it has partnered with premier provider of cloud and ERP application management services, OneNeck® IT Solutions, a TDS® Company. This newly formed partnership will extend important security solutions into OneNeck's managed service offerings with Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite (L.E.M.S.S.).
The partnership comes at a time when companies of all sizes battle seemingly endless malware attacks.

Recognizing this growing need, OneNeck has licensed patch management, anti-virus, application control, device control and other capabilities integrated on L.E.M.S.S. across their managed service provider offerings, including cloud infrastructure and colocation facilities in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Arizona.
"Adding L.E.M.S.S. helps OneNeck bolster security across their busy data centers while also passing along those benefits to their customers," said Rich Hlavka, senior vice president, business development, Lumension. "This partnership is also a strong strategic fit for Lumension. Further growing our solutions into the cloud provides us with unlimited opportunity to advance our security offerings."
The Lumension OneNeck partnership will also include expansion of the cloud powered L.E.M.S.S. across the OneNeck customer base. This tighter OEM relationship will enable customers to cost effectively improve security by relying on L.E.M.S.S. while also leveraging the expertise of OneNeck's vast hosting infrastructure, key security personnel, and best security practices.
