Products and services
We combine our products and services with industry expertise and consulting services. We have simplified our products – categorising them around what our customers need and making them more straightforward to buy and link together. Those categories are:
We provide a range of security products and services including firewalls, web security, intrusion prevention and threat monitoring.

We provide a range of contact centre services to help our customers build stronger relationships with their customers. Our services provide the option of using email, web chat, social media and the phone – either via automated systems or dedicated advisors. Our cloud solution gives customers more flexibility and control over their costs by allowing capacity to change in response to demand.
Businesses communicate in a number of different ways – by phone, SMS, voicemail, instant messaging, email, video conferencing and data-sharing solutions. They want these channels to be integrated and work together. Our collaboration services help customers simplify their communications and transform the way they interact with their customers, colleagues, partners and suppliers.
Our experts around the world provide consulting, integration and managed services to our customers. They help solve business problems and make sure customers get the best out of our products and services.
As every industry has its unique needs and challenges, we provide a range of industry-specific solutions.
