SLT emphasis on its state-of-the-art managed security as-a-service

Today, businesses have every reason to be concerned about the rising threats faced in the connected environment. Therefore, it is important for organizations to seriously consider cyber security as a part of their core-businesses.

By focusing on technology powered innovation, businesses need to maintain sustainable risk management actions against the evolving threats in the business landscape.

A number of high profile attacks including ransomware attacks and hacking incidents have occurred in the recent past, mainly because of enterprise security breaches. Similar incidents can happen to anyone, at any time. Defending businesses against internet based threats is increasingly complex as internet hosted malware becomes ever more sophisticated.

“We are always vigilant and have closely looked at how cybercrime is evolving, who these ruthless criminals are, and how to fight back and be protected. So, it’s time to look differently at cyber security: move beyond the jargon and understand the real risks of the digital world. The hard reality is that all firms face cyber attacks. Any business is a potential target. Decisions to adopt enterprise level managed security services are essential to survive, without getting into more trouble and ensuring that as much security as possible is provided to every organization to provide high quality services, without interruption to their own customers”, said M.I.Deen, Deputy Chief Enterprise & Wholesale Officer of Sri Lanka Telecom PLC (SLT).

In this information society, Information security risk factors are crucial for business continuity. Loss of sensitive information or any data breach may lead to loss of competitive advantage and loss of customer confidence. Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attacks, malware, and other cyber-attacks may damage systems, processors and company reputation.

It is within this backdrop that the SLT Enterprise Solutions arm has strengthened their team of experts in SLT to support businesses with state-of-the-art managed security solutions. The company’s international collaborations and partnerships have made it possible to bring powerful managed security as-a-service solutions to enterprise businesses. Over many years, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), has joined hands with Fortinet, the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions and Arbor Network, the security division of NETSCOUT, one of the world’s leading provider of DDoS protection in the enterprise, carrier and mobile market segments, to boost next generation managed security services to business organizations. As a result, SLT’s Managed Security Services provide a multifunctional solution for large, medium and small enterprises in Sri Lanka. The company’s security experts are constantly watching, learning, predicting and responding to threats to protect the organization and its customers. In order to ensure service levels (SLAs) within the organization, SLT has established an Information Security Management System (ISMS) covering internal audits and activities such as vulnerability assessment of critical services, penetration testing, compromise assessment, and security architecture reviews, which are conducted on a regular basis to ensure compliance with ISO 27001 standard. Furthermore, the company will take remedial actions for any identified vulnerabilities.

SLT’s managed security solutions portfolio includes Managed Firewall, DDoS Protection and Managed Firewall Advanced services.

Managed Firewall features integrated security intelligence with Unified Threat Management profiles including antimalware protection, data leak prevention, intrusion prevention, web filtering and application control.

DDoS attacks can quickly incapacitate a targeted business, creating revenue loss, productivity loss and reputation damage. SLT DDoS Protection Service provides the detection and mitigation of Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks, protecting the enterprise networks and ensuring the customer bandwidth is available for legitimate traffic.

For customers, there will be no initial investment for these managed security products, whilst also minimizing the risk of security breaches, improving productivity and helping to eliminate CAPEX investment for firewalls.
