Jtendo Enriches iBASIS 360 Security for Telcos

Network operators face a relentless barrage of telecom attacks, making it imperative to protect their global networks and subscribers. In recent memory, the second largest telco in Australia, Optus (News - Alert), experienced a data breach during which customer names, identity documents, email addresses and phone numbers were taken.

With attacks on the rise, operators seek comprehensive, holistic network security to prevent revenue loss and protect brand reputation.

That is why communications solutions provider for operators iBASIS integrated the multi-protocol signaling firewall of telecom security expert jtendo to its managed cloud-based security portfolio, iBASIS Security iQ360.

Jtendo’s security audit experience, technical knowledge of telco protocols and cross-protocol correlation expertise will combine with iBASIS’ international and managed cloud-based skills, with dedicated security centers in Americas, Europe and Asia.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with jtendo to achieve effective threat management and be able to leverage their unique auditing and multiprotocol expertise to raise the level of protection even further," said Guillaume Klein, iBASIS vice president, product management.

The iBASIS Security iQ360 Solution leverages a comprehensive view of potential network threats to detect, prevent and defend against attacks. The cloud-based platform sits on the iBASIS network, which ensures no intrusion on the customer network, and eliminates the need for multiple upfront mobile operator network investments or intensive project deployment.

The iBASIS solution relies on in-depth visibility, monitoring and attack detection complemented with automatic rule updates against continuously evolving threats and access to one of the largest telecom threat databases.

"The growing threat trend around today’s telecom networks drives the need for innovative security management solutions that can adapt quickly to new threats," said Klein.

Jtendo’s telco security solution adapts quickly to new threats to keep the network protected and secure, provides business service add-ons to ensure cost-effective solution, complies with GSMA (News - Alert) recommendations and internal security research and continuously updates and improves the rules.

"Mobile operators are increasingly searching for threat management that continuously adapts to their ever-changing network landscape, offering a flexible managed solution hosted on the IPX network is an effective way to secure their signaling network as an ongoing process,” Piotr Szymanski, jtendo CEO.

The increase in the number of network protocols created greater complexity that requires advanced features for testing and cross-protocol correlation to monitor, analyze, detect and prevent security breaches. Jtendo will enrich the iBASIS Security iQ360 adaptive solution to continuously protect customers’ signaling networks
