AQSACOM has launched a centralized cyber intelligence compliance solution targeted at communications service providers. This software-based offering, called ALIS, helps CSPs address local-country lawful cyber intelligence and GDPR compliance.
ALIS provides CSPs that deliver services in multiple countries with cost savings. It does that by freeing them from having to deploy end-to-end mediation solutions within each country for data retention legal compliance, geolocation, and lawful interception. And it can be deployed in virtual, bare-metal, or hybrid environments.
“AQSACOM's programmable software approach enables a level of flexibility and scalability for cyber intelligence that alternative centralized, platform-based technologies can't match," explained Frederick Reynolds, vice president of marketing at AQSACOM. "With our distributed architecture, AQSACOM can help CSPs streamline operations and reduce costs when deploying communications services across multiple countries, while offering the highest level of data protection and preservation.”
ALIS addresses 2G, 3G, 4G, cable, eRCS, FTTH, IMS, IP, PSTN, satellite, xDSL, and VoLTE services. And AQSACOM says it’s ideal for CSPs with cloud-based or SaaS (News - Alert) communications solutions and those using hosted communications platforms like BroadWorks by BroadSoft.
“This architecture offers an isolated virtual mediation node dedicated to LEA with an end-to-end data encryption,” the company explains. “As a result, the AQSACOM solution ensures full compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The distribution of the mediation and delivery function provides the flexibility and scalability according to each country’s requirements. The imbedded security features, LEA management, data segregation, encryption, and isolation provide the best-of-breed data protection, confidentiality, and system access control required for such cyber intelligence software.”
AQSACOM was established in 1994 and is headquartered near Paris. It has research and development facilities in Dallas, Dubai, and Paris and regional sales and support on every continent to locally serve a global, tier one customer base. The company says it has extensive experience interoperating with such suppliers as BroadSoft, Cisco, Ericsson, GENBAND (News - Alert)/Nortel/SONUS, Huawei, Nokia/Siemens/Alcatel/Lucent, ZTE, and others.
