Ericsson has boosted the security characteristics of its cloud portfolio after signing a deal with technology company Guardtime.

Guardtime specialises in Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI) technology, which monitors digital assets and claims to provide 100 percent detection and real-time mitigation of cyberattacks, system compromises and any other unauthorised changes to networks.

As big data becomes ever more prevalent, the two companies are aiming to secure the data assets of companies – from telcos to governments – so that the provenance of data as well as who can control it can be better controlled.

In particular, Ericsson said it is looking to combat Advanced Persistence Threats (APTs), malicious insiders and corrupt practices.

The Sweden-based vendor has promised that the integration of Guardtime’s technology will provide “immutable evidence” of malpractice that will “hold in court”.

As a result, the two vendors said data owners would be able to use big data with “independently verifiable confidence”.

Jason Hoffman, Vice President and Head of Cloud Software at Ericsson, commented: “[The deal] enables even the most regulated industries to benefit from the economics of cloud infrastructure while maintaining compliance, improved threat protection and native forensics capabilities."

Guardtime CTO Matthew Johnson added: “Together, this partnership solves forensic and governance challenges globally through the realisation of massive scale data integrity and attribution capabilities."
