Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that it’s subsidiary, Solacom Technologies Inc. (“Solacom”), which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, introduced a new Guardian Cybersecurity turnkey solution. Public safety answering points (“PSAPs”) can now protect their mission critical information and communication networks from cyberattacks with custom protection systems.
Purpose-built for public safety infrastructures, the Guardian Cybersecurity solution combines Solacom’s deep understanding of PSAP operations with leading cybersecurity technologies to address the cyber protection needs of PSAPs of any size. The turnkey solution provides easy access to pre-vetted, industry-leading cybersecurity technologies and skillsets. It can be tailored to meet the cyber protection needs of any PSAP with a variety of services, including:
Cybersecurity Risk Assessment
Strategic Consulting and Security Controls Implementation
Continuous Threat Monitoring, Detection and Response
Remediation and Recovery Assistance
Cybersecurity Awareness and Training
This complete approach eliminates the need to source, manage, integrate and pay for cybersecurity systems from multiple vendors, most of whom are not familiar with the mission-critical information and communication network infrastructures of public safety operating environments.
“With the move to IP-based Next Generation 911 (“NG911”) systems, PSAPs face new, more sophisticated, and potentially devastating cybersecurity threats,” said Pierre Plangger, President of Solacom. “A single cybersecurity breach can compromise or cripple PSAP operations for hours, days, or even weeks. To ensure business continuity and public safety in a NG911 world, every PSAP must implement cybersecurity tactics and technologies. Solacom’s Guardian Cybersecurity solution dramatically reduces cybersecurity worries and risks at each stage of NG911 evolution and helps PSAPs prevent, detect and quickly recover from cyberattacks.”
The Guardian Cybersecurity solution can be customized to fit the unique needs of PSAPs of any size based on highly flexible, operating expenditure based pricing models. This enables all PSAPs to design, implement and maintain a robust cybersecurity strategy that reduces the potential for system disruptions, crashes, data leaks and loss of public confidence and reputation as a result of cyberattacks.
