IMPACT, THE CYBERSECURITY EXECUTING ARM OF THE ITU, ENTERS INTO A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPWITH SATORYS
Satorys’ unique ability to combat modern threat is recognised by a major global player
Geneva, Switzerland, October 26th 2011
– Satorys, a leading IT Security company, has established during the ITU World Telecom 2011, a strategic partnership with IMPACT (International MultilateralPartnership Against Cyber Threats).
Satorys is a leading IT Security Provider that enables, by leveraging its world-class proprietary technology, enterprises, telecommunication operators and governments to fight modern cyber-threats.Satorys’ proven capacity to detect the Stuxnet Worm, or modern Distributed Denial of Service Attacks such as the one that affected WikiLeaks, has propelled it to a leading role in the world since early 2011.
It unique ability stems from its innovative approach, whereby threats are detected according to their behaviours – unlike anti-virus software for example that look for mere signatures. To identify threatening behaviours, Satorys correlates millions of observations collected every second on a global scale – this collective intelligence is what makes its offering so compelling to its customers.
IMPACT is the cybersecurity executing arm of the United Nations’ specialised agency – the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). IMPACT brings together governments, academia and industry experts to enhance the global community’s capabilities in dealing with cyber threats. Based in Cyberjaya,Malaysia, IMPACT is the operational home of ITU’s Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA). As ITU’s cybersecurity executing arm, IMPACT provides ITU’s 193 Member States access to expertise, facilities and resources to effectively address cyber threats, as well as assisting United Nations agencies in protecting their ICT infrastructures. Today, with a 137 Member States that have joined the ITU-IMPACT coalition, it has become the largest cybersecurity alliance of its kind in the world.
In addition to the many industry partners, ITU-IMPACT can further provide increasingly valuable insight to its member states and partners, through Satorys’ ability to collect, parse and present global cyberthreats – as they are nowadays increasingly short-lived, heterogeneous and deadly, Satorys’ global observation capacity has become a vital addition and value added service from ITU-IMPACT.
