Managed E-Authentication Service

Integrated, cohesive turn-key security

CenturyLink's Managed E-Authentication Service (MEAS) provides a tightly integrated, cohesive service incorporating a variety of authentication mechanisms including tokens, digital certificates and biometrics. CenturyLink's MEAS hardware and software components provide for remote authentication of individual users over a network, for the purposes of electronic government and commerce. All of the hardware, software, and networks services are integrated and managed by the CenturyLink Security Operations Center (SOC), giving your Agency a cohesive, turn-key service.


CenturyLink's MEAS provides an extensive list of features including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Comprehensive, on-demand security audit that identifies, analyzes and reports on security threats to your Agency's systems, networks and applications
  • Knowledge base of exploits updated daily from information provided through strategic relationships and a skilled staff of dedicated security engineers
  • Scans and audits the majority of commercial and open source applications on more than 200 different platforms and operating systems
  • Performs external scans by remotely probing a network for vulnerabilities that are exploitable from the Internet
  • Performs internal scans using a scanner appliance that detects flaws that are exploitable from the inside of a network


  • Helps mitigate SPAM, phishing, virus and malware propagation, directory harvest attacks and other e-mail borne threats
  • Provides a manageable, scalable and repeatable process, and thus the validity and assurance that comes with third-party assessments, without the need for additional Agency personnel resources or infrastructure to be deployed and managed
  • Centralized reporting, remediation workflow, and user management, while allowing scans to be distributed throughout an organization
  • As new signatures, vulnerabilities, or product upgrades are deployed, your Agency immediately benefits from the new functionality
  • Uses the newest code, thus ensuring that tests are performed with the latest known vulnerability checks
  • Your authorized Agency contact has on-demand access to CenturyLink's MEAS at any time from anywhere with secure, browser-based access over the Internet
