IoT Anti-Bot Package enables efficient compliance with IT security regulations
The goal of Germany’s new IT security law is to better support the police working to block criminal botnets. Since July 2015, telecommunication providers have been required to inform their customers of suspicious activity that could indicate malware attacks on their users’ systems. They must also suggest “appropriate, effective and accessible” technical means of detecting and ideally blocking these malicious attacks.
With its IoT Anti-Bot Package, Secucloud enables telcos to meet the Federal Network Agency’s requirements and protect customers effectively from botnets. To achieve this, the company’s high-performance OEM Cloud Framework uses tools like IDS and IPS systems within its packet analyser module in the Intelligent Algorithm Based Steering Engine (IABS Engine) to detect and immediately block botnet activity. The on-premise cloud system includes highly elastic scaling that can protect large numbers of users – up to 100 million – effectively. A director node (DiNO) load balancer forms part of the network and automatically distributes traffic directed to it across a sufficient number of filter nodes (SAN). This is controlled by an overarching management instance, the Secucloud Cloud Operations Controller (CLOC). The framework can be optimally integrated into providers’ networks using the Secucloud system’s APIs.
Efficient security in the cloud
Secucloud specialises in providing security for the internet of things. It offers a comprehensive, completely cloud-based enterprise-class security system for telcos and mobile phone operators that they can install directly into their network infrastructure. This enables them to protect their customers from all cyber-threats on the internet in a centralised way. Customers do not need to install any software on their devices, so no setup or maintenance is required. The Secucloud solution scales elastically and can protect up to 100 million users effectively and in real time.
