Datacentre Cyber Security: 5th Datacentre India 2018 International Conference

Written by Sarah Chandley on Monday, 08 October 2018. Posted in Cyber

Rohit Singh, Country Manager – AsiaPAC & India, Telesoft Technologies sat on a panel at the recent 5th Data Centre India 2018 International Conference to moderate a session and discuss all things cyber security and risk in the datacentre. Together with industry experts from Tata Projects, Juniper and Sterling & Wilson, Rohit and the panel discussed how datacentres are the backbone of today’s digital economy and are vulnerable to advanced persistent cyber-attacks, despite continued investment.

Cyber-attacks in the datacentre have increased dramatically, exposing sensitive personal and business information, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy. India ranks 3rd in terms of the highest number of internet users in the world after USA and China, and ranks among the top five countries affected by cybercrime. In this ever-connected networked world we all need to be assured that the equipment running our daily lives is safe from malicious attack (Power Sector, Telecoms Backbone, Big Datacentre’s etc.).

The key subjects the panel analysed during this discussion were:

  • Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks.
  • Why multi 100Gbps solutions are required to protect the modern datacentres.
  • Why a resilient, scalable and flexible cyber security strategy is imperative for the modern datacentres.

Telesoft’s TDAC analytics and forensics platform defends modern datacentres from persistent and complex cyber threats. TDAC – alongside the FlowProbe and CERNE IDS - can monitor and search through multi-terabit per second (TBps) network traffic, continuously scanning and determining the severity of millions of security events and alerts.

“In order for datacentre providers to protect their networks, they need to develop a multi-layered cyber security strategy and use tools that are designed for carrier scale networks. The sheer size and scale of datacentres operations pose unique cyber challenges that other solutions simply can’t cope with. Telesoft’s carrier-grade technologies equip IT security professionals with the ability to reverse those odds. Engineered for high-density cyber environments, Telesoft can do what no other solution can - deliver precision and speed at scale to protect mission-critical data for big organisations.”  Rohit Singh, Country Manager- AsiaPac & India, Telesoft Technologies.
