Deutsche Telekom signs up new AI, security partners

AI

Deutsche Telekom has inked new AI and security partnerships to bolster its offering to businesses.

T-Systems’ House of Clouds portfolio will now offer AI technology from IPsoft.

The vendor’s Amelia platform, which can communicate with people and systems, will be integrated with existing products, offering AI-based cognitive services.

T-Systems said that it could be used in most frameworks involving data and processes, including supporting customer services or procurement departments.

"Systems with artificial intelligence provide ideal impetus for the digital transformation process, and they are playing an increasingly important role in business competitiveness," said Reinhard Clemens, CEO of T-Systems.

The operator also boosted its security offerings with the launch of the new solutions Industrial Threat Protect Pro and Industrial Network Protect Pro.

Developed by Israeli security company CyberX, the former analyses weak points in networks and automatically records network configurations.

Industrial Network Protect Pro, meanwhile, is a distributed firewall for industrial networks, based on a solution designed by Israeli company Radiflow.

The solution prevents unauthorised network access and uncontrolled data flows.

Companies can subdivide networks into protected zones and monitor and control data flows between these zones.

In addition, Industrial Network Protect Pro can also be used to implement centrally administrated security guidelines for groups of different sites and manufacturers, with its gateways able to serve as sensors for attack detection.

The new solutions are available immediately through the Deutsche Telekom’s Telekom Security unit.

Telekom Security also announced that it has built new integrated Cyber Defense and Security Operations centres in Bonn.
