Network intelligence technology company Qosmos
is to help cloud-based IT security provider Secucloud fight cyber threats. Qosmos has headquarters in Paris, France and regional headquarters in the Silicon Valley and Singapore as well as local offices in London and Tokyo. It specializes in “embedded DPI-based IP classification and network intelligence technology for use in physical, SDN and NFV architectures”. The company will leverage its Qosmos ixEngine solution to provide Secucloud with real-time classification of applications and protocols.
Secucloud, which has headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, offers “industrial grade” Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) services for ISPs, TELCOs and managed service providers. The company’s flagship offering is its modular Elastic Cloud Security System (ECS2), which is installed directly into infrastructure to protect networks from cyber-threats. Users do not have to use device-based software and the solution requires no setup or maintenance. Secucloud “scales elastically” and can “protect up to 100 million users effectively” in real time. Its partnership with Qosmos will further strengthen ECS2’s security capability.
“Secucloud ECS² processes Internet traffic on a global scale to protect mobile users and each and every device”, explained Dennis Monner, the CEO of Secucloud. “With the Qosmos ixEngine as an additional security module, we can provide an even more secure environment for our customers.”Do you know of any other companies forming security partnerships?
