Illuminate announced today it has received a contract from a European country to provide cybersecurity support services for a national telecommunications network.
Illuminate will provide its Watchdog cyber intrusion detection and forensic analysis solution for a country wide communication network. Watchdog will monitor, detect and forensically inspect traffic anomalies at points of network interconnect. Watchdog is designed to protect against security vulnerabilities within the legacy communications protocols such as Signaling System 7 (SS7) and the more modern equivalent, Diameter, and in the future on 5G Roaming traffic.
Watchdog provides the strongest protection from cyber threats which could cause, for example, denial of service, voice and message redirect or financial fraud. Watchdog can identify when anomalous activity is taking place within the network and flag these malicious activities that firewalls may miss, since many threats coming through the interconnects are at levels of tremendous sophistication. Watchdog leverages cutting-edge machine learning techniques that can help to identify precursor events which could indicate future threats even before they occur.
“We are honored to have been chosen to protect this national communications network,” said Dr. Iain Goodfellow, Managing Director, Illuminate. “Illuminate has spent decades working in the network assurance space and has developed significant experience in identifying unusual behavior in networks, and as a result, we are perfectly positioned to deliver this cyber security capability into this telecommunications network.”
