Redefining Cybersecurity and Resilience with SOC4Future Strategy and AI Empowerment
TrustCSI™ 3.0 uses CITIC Telecom CPC’s decades of deep security knowledge and practical services experience to revolutionize SOCs. It follows CITIC Telecom CPC's "ReDEFINED SOC4Future" strategy that encompasses four key elements:
TrustCSI™ 3.0 leverages the proactive security approach with AI-Red/Blue Cybersecurity Practices, enhancing the cybersecurity cycle from reactive defense to proactive guardianship. It offers an advanced automated penetration testing tool that uses machine learning to enhance the information-gathering phase and exploit vulnerabilities concurrently. It vastly improves enterprise-wide threat awareness and response effectiveness by replicating real-world cyberattack and defense scenarios.
The AI-Red/Blue Cybersecurity Practices cover the entire service stack, from staff training, offensive and defensive drills to network protection solutions, security strategy and service consultation. The Red Team conducts comprehensive AI-powered assessments and simulations, while the Blue Team offers all-encompassing defense services, ensuring a holistic approach to cybersecurity.
In the evolution of a cybersecurity service framework, intelligence and automation are no longer choices but crucial values for customers in an all-around way. CITIC Telecom CPC's AI-driven solutions and automation accelerate threat identification, enrichment, hunting, containment, and remediation. Combining this "Tech" capability and proactive "Operational" approach reduces opportunities for threat actors to infiltrate while enabling enterprises to respond rapidly. The future-ready and intelligent framework has four service pillars:
1. Identify and Predict
A suite of comprehensive assessment and identification services covering systems, applications, network infrastructure, and critical assets services improve threat identification and prediction. Harnessing the power of algorithm and AI, together with other enhanced capabilities, the AI Penetration Test efficiently identifies and mitigates security risks at an early application development stage while assessing security resilience against various attack scenarios.
SASE for dynamic network security, UTM, NGFW, WAF, and IPS for network and application access control, and cloud email security offer comprehensive protection to enterprises. A dedicated team of security professionals manages everything from incident consultation, solutions design and implementation to configuration and ongoing device management. This comprehensive approach ensures the continuous improvement of the customers’ security infrastructure.
Round-the-clock managed security, reinforced by certified SOC and dual SIEM platforms, EDR solutions, and AI-enabled User and Entity Behavior Analysis, helps enterprises swiftly identify and respond to cybersecurity events.
4. Respond & Recover
Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR), Security Incident Response (IR), and Threat Hunting services minimize resolution time and human error, with cloud-based Backup and Disaster Recovery services driving rapid recovery and robust business continuity.
Security matters to all data, not just some. So, CITIC Telecom CPC's self-developed world-class SOCs utilize advanced technologies with Dual SIEM to revolutionize threat intelligence management by accelerating AI-driven detection and feedback to emerging threats. They provide enterprises with critical assessment for threat monitoring or immediate protection.
The Dual SIEM operations encompass a wide array of Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) capabilities. They aggregate and cross-correlate threat intelligence data to identify and illuminate potential threats, increase the speed of searches, boost security visibility, and improve cost management.
The latest SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) model helps enterprises enjoy cost-effective, SOC-managed security capabilities from different SOCaaS service offerings. Using the latest security technologies, a team of dedicated experts will monitor, detect, and respond to threats 24/7, all without the expensive cost of building and staffing your own SOC.
CITIC Telecom CPC's "SOCaaS" approach delivers unparalleled security analytics and monitoring capabilities via self-deployed and managed 24x7 SOCs in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Shanghai. These fully managed SOCs use a "global-local" approach with certified professional expertise for customized security solutions worldwide to safeguard their operations, providing customers with peace of mind.
Mr. Brook Wong, Chief Executive Officer of CITIC Telecom CPC, said, “CITIC Telecom CPC TrustCSI™ 3.0 embodies our motto of ‘Innovation Never Stops’.
