Infotech Lead Japan: NTT Communications announced that its Managed Security Services for total outsourcing of security risk management solutions has begun offering Network Profiling, File Verification and Data Loss Prevention for strengthened security against cyber attacks targeting enterprises.
In combination with other Managed Security Services from NTT Com, the new offerings provide security log correlation analyses and help to determine potential risks, thereby enabling customers to anticipate possible needs for more robust security measures.
The services help to protect ICT environments and minimize the risk of information leakage by detecting unknown threats and malware, such as targeted attacks.
The Managed Security Services include Network Profiling, File Verification and data loss prevention (DLP).
Network Profiling provides security monitoring via security equipment installed in the customer’s network to detect unauthorized access and viruses. This includes network traffic analysis for unknown threats and potential risks that cannot be found by conventional IDS/IPS signatures or antivirus pattern files.
File Verification provides security monitoring via security equipment installed in the customer’s network to analyze email attachments and downloaded files. Files are tested in pseudo environments for unknown malware not identifiable through standard antivirus measures. The service provides protection against new security threats, such as targeted attacks using email attachment containing unknown malware.
DLP uses DLP equipment installed in the customer’s network to detect and report confidential files sent in violation of the customer’s security policies prohibiting data from leaving the network. The service also provides tracking if it identifies an information leakage or detects signs of a possible leakage.
Earlier in June NTT Communications (NTT Com) introduced world’s first globally seamless enterprise cloud service to incorporate OpenFlow network virtualization technology for networks built within and between data centers.
The service is initially provided via NTT Com data centers in Japan and Hong Kong, followed by data centers in the United States(two locations), the United Kingdom and Singapore in December and in Australia, Malaysia and Thailand in March 2013.
