Comtech Solacom Introduces Turnkey Cybersecurity Solution for Public Safety Infrastructures

Guardian Cybersecurity solution delivers enterprise-grade protection
and fast recovery from cyberattacks

June 14, 2019 — Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL)
announced today that it’s subsidiary, Solacom Technologies Inc.
(“Solacom”), which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment,
introduced a new Guardian Cybersecurity turnkey solution. Public safety
answering points (“PSAPs”) can now protect their mission critical
information and communication networks from cyberattacks with custom
protection systems.

Purpose-built for public safety infrastructures, the Guardian
Cybersecurity solution combines Solacom’s deep understanding of PSAP
operations with leading cybersecurity technologies to address the cyber
protection needs of PSAPs of any size. The turnkey solution provides
easy access to pre-vetted, industry-leading cybersecurity technologies
and skillsets. It can be tailored to meet the cyber protection needs of
any PSAP with a variety of services, including:

  • Cybersecurity Risk Assessment
  • Strategic Consulting and Security Controls Implementation
  • Continuous Threat Monitoring, Detection and Response
  • Remediation and Recovery Assistance
  • Cybersecurity Awareness and Training

This complete approach eliminates the need to source, manage, integrate
and pay for cybersecurity systems from multiple vendors, most of whom
are not familiar with the mission-critical information and communication
network infrastructures of public safety operating environments.

“With the move to IP-based Next Generation 911 (“NG911″) systems, PSAPs
face new, more sophisticated, and potentially devastating cybersecurity
threats,” said Pierre Plangger, President of Solacom. “A single
cybersecurity breach can compromise or cripple PSAP operations for
hours, days, or even weeks. To ensure business continuity and public
safety in a NG911 world, every PSAP must implement cybersecurity tactics
and technologies. Solacom’s Guardian Cybersecurity solution dramatically
reduces cybersecurity worries and risks at each stage of NG911 evolution
and helps PSAPs prevent, detect and quickly recover from cyberattacks.”

The Guardian Cybersecurity solution can be customized to fit the unique
needs of PSAPs of any size based on highly flexible, operating
expenditure based pricing models. This enables all PSAPs to design,
implement and maintain a robust cybersecurity strategy that reduces the
potential for system disruptions, crashes, data leaks and loss of public
confidence and reputation as a result of cyberattacks.
