Self-protection Cyber Security

  • Provide protection to infrastructures against large-scale attacks to enhance security, leading to zero down time for the system.
  • Empowered by fully automated autonomous control loop with zero human intervention, detecting and mitigating a large-scale network in a few milliseconds.
  • Significantly reduce OPEX and enhance service availability.
  • Implemented and demoed in Portugal Telecom premises in the case of DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) in EU 5G SELFNET project (led by UWS).
