In the Trusted Cloud ecosystem, different companies and organizations make use of each other's security solutions. One of them is the Finnish company Ohmu, who manages cloud services and whose database information security is provided by the Italian Reply. Both companies are part of the Trusted Cloud ecosystem.
Presently, Internet users are constantly under threat from criminals, governments and businesses. Information security crimes are encountered daily. Criminals use targeted attacks against organizations, and traditional data security solutions are insufficient for protection against them. Individual people are constantly targeted for scams, and identifying them becomes more and more difficult.
In the Trusted Cloud project, Ohmu evaluated and deployed Reply’s new Intelligent Monitoring service, which monitors attacks and break-ins against servers worldwide. In order to improve the service, Ohmu gave anonymized log data from its own production environment to Reply.
"We now have active security monitoring by Reply, in case of potential attacks and intrusions," says Software Architect Heikki Nousiainen from Ohmu.
"Reply’s solution is aimed specifically to monitor and secure back-end systems. Reply service makes it possible to bring an active network security control into your own system, even if you don’t have the necessary expertise in your organization. This is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. "
Nousiainen points out that the service remains always up to date and it doesn’t require the company's own resources to be committed in support services.
According to Software Architect Heikki Nousiainen, Ohmu’s and Reply’s cooperation shows that the quality grade of European cloud services can be easily improved. (See the video)
