Menlo Security has announced that it is partnering up with Microsoft through the Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP). MAPP provides early access to vulnerability information to allow software providers to more quickly provide protections to their customers. 

“Menlo Security is pleased to partner with Microsoft to incorporate protections against newly discovered vulnerabilities before they are publicly disclosed,” said Kowsik Guruswamy, chief technology officer at Menlo Security. “This partnership with Microsoft will strengthen our ability to provide our customers with one of the most comprehensive security services available in the industry.”

VIAVI and 3Z announce new toolkit
The Fiber Installer Kit includes tools needed for testing, inspecting, and cleaning fiber and connectors while installing wireless networks. 

The kit includes an OLTS-85 optical loss test set, P5000i digital fiber microscope, and FFL-050 visual fault locator. 

“Connector contamination is one of the greatest causes of network failure. A single particle mated into the core of a fiber can cause significant back reflection, insertion loss and even equipment damage,” said Enzo Dalmazzo, senior director of Converged Instruments and Virtual Test at VIAVI. “By testing and validating fiber before turning up a site, contractors will expand the range of services they offer, and enable carriers to maintain high standards of service and customer satisfaction.”
