Enterprise-class IT security for use at home
Industry-standard security from the cloud
To counter the growing complexity of internet-based threats, enterprise IT specialists have already been using combined solutions for some time – concepts like unified threat management and next-generation firewall systems. These protect the corporate network with a wide variety of security functionality, including intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), multi-AV engines, anti-phishing, application control, deep packet inspection (DPI), URL filtering and APT protection. However, managing maintenance and updates for these systems is both time-consuming and costly, which has made their use in private households unrealistic up to now.
As the first provider of its kind in Germany, Secucloud is now making this kind of advanced security system – built on industry standards – available to end users and consumers. The modular Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2) is installed directly into the infrastructure of ISPs like Telekom, Vodafone and 1&1. As ECS2 was designed and developed from the outset as a cloud infrastructure for telecom operators, these companies can offer a scalable solution that provides real-time protection and security for every customer and on every device – with no need for any installation.
Each ECS2 system includes several analysers. The security instances process all internet traffic to and from the customers’ devices and apply all the preconfigured security and filter policies to it. Using highly sophisticated security technology, the intelligent algorithm based steering (IABS) engine creates real-time analyses of the overall threat situation and blocks attacks with the appropriate counter-measures. The innovative SAND SSL scan technology even makes this possible for the increasing amount of encrypted web traffic.
