BATM Advanced Communications Ltd’s (LON:BVC) software development subsidiary, Telco Systems, has partnered up with Tokyo firm Trend Micro to launch a cybersecurity solution for deployment across virtual networks.
London-listed BATM said the new virtual network function enhances the group’s market position by expanding its network function virtualisation portfolio to include security.
Importantly, it is the only vSecurity solution provided by a worldwide vendor that can operate on both Arm and Intel platforms.
The “high quality network security service” also provides increased performance, flexibility and cost savings, BATM said.
“We are delighted to now be able to offer a cybersecurity solution in our NFV portfolio, which we believe is the most sophisticated option available,” said chief executive Zvi Marom.
“Our partnership with Trend Micro, a global leader in its field, is testament to the strength of our NFV offer and the increasing momentum that we are gaining in this key target market for our networking and cyber division.
Marom added: “We look forward to continuing to expand our portfolio to offer the most comprehensive NFV platform to telecoms operators and managed service providers globally.”
This latest launch is part of BATM's strategy to leverage the telecom-industry transition from hardware to Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).
