Making a triple play for the win
Tata Communications attributes its winning performance to its solutions offered through advanced analytics, threat intelligence, and visibility and control capabilities across the attack surface.  The company identifies three key features that differentiate its offerings from its competitors.
AI/ML empowered security analytics
This approach deploys high-volume data metric techniques along with analytics to detect threats. Over 25 million NetFlow records per minute are generated from 150+ edge routers. This rich data source is then subjected to analytics for intelligent and automated action.
Global threat intelligence  

As part of Tata Communications’ cyber intelligence arsenal, the CTI platform uses evidence-based knowledge to provide actionable advice to customers that can in turn enhance their decision-making. The information is based on a diverse threat feed from governments, commercial third-party sources, and free source open-source threat intelligence feeds, NetFlow data, and honeypots (digital traps to defend against cyberattacks).

Collecting and correlating this disparate dataset with the attendant contextualization directly translates into a higher IOC (Indicators of Compromise) score. IOCs enriched with context can help end-users prioritize the threats or imminent attacks that need to be addressed first. Tata Communications’ competencies as a telecom provider lend further weight to this risk-based strategy, compared to that of other MSSPs. Its customers report significantly higher payoffs from this approach compared to conventional threat intelligence feeds.
Threat visibility and control
As important as detecting and warding off threats is for cybersecurity, customers also need powerful visualization into threats to determine the efficacy of the solution. Tata Communications’ proprietary customer portal acts as a single pane management console for clients to track performance metrics and obtain a unified view of the organization’s security posture. It also integrates other services offered by Tata Communications for a truly unified experience.
