T-Systems Applauded by Frost & Sullivan for Dominating the European Managed Security Services Market with its Best-of-Breed Security Products
T-Systems is not only aware of enterprises’ needs, but is committed to creating a collaborative relationship with each one
Based on its recent analysis of the European managed security services (MSS) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes T-Systems with the 2019 European Growth, Innovation & Leadership Frost Radar Award. As a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, one of the largest and most trusted telecommunication providers in Europe, T-Systems has the resources and experience to accelerate in the European MSS market. Its strong commitment to research, the use of homegrown technologies, and partnerships with a range of security vendors help meet the unique needs of each client.
“T-Systems leverages its network capabilities to perform a range of monitoring activities to detect and stop malicious activity at the network level. For instance, it offers Backbone distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection to identify anomalies in Internet traffic,” said Malgorzata Ciesla Industry Manager. “The company is uniquely suited to providing DDoS protection to its Internet connectivity clients, as its control over the network enables it to prevent DDoS attacks before they occur.”
Furthermore, T-System’s access to network data allows it to produce actionable threat intelligence. It detects botnets as well as phishing attacks by monitoring DNS registration. Significantly, it works closely with T-Labs, a research arm of Deutsche Telekom, to harness the power of big data analytics for more effective cyber defense. Its rigorous approach to security centers on the concept of ‘security and privacy by design’.
T-Systems has a presence in more than 20 countries and employs almost 38,000 people. It has one of the largest networks of security operation centers (SOCs). While its SOCs in Europe are in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Greece, and Spain, its SOCs for its global clients are located in Mexico, the United States, South Africa, and Singapore. The company has already exhibited unprecedented growth and leadership in the German market and is poised to expand across Eastern and Western Europe in the near future.
“The company will continue to grow its product portfolio as a result of new partnerships and collaborations with cybersecurity start-ups and well-established vendors. Its commitment to innovation and new product development will give it an ever bigger competitive advantage in the European market,” noted Ciesla. “Overall, T-Systems will benefit from continued industry convergence and is likely to emerge a leading one-stop-shop for security, IT, and telecommunication offerings in Europe.”
