Open source to power Telstra security operations centres

The open source Apache Metron project will help underpin managed security services delivered from two Telstra security operations centres set to be launched later this year.

Telstra will launch SOCs in Sydney and Melbourne in June.

The telco’s director of security solutions, Neil Campbell, said the new SOCs and Telstra’s new platform are part of “reimagining” how managed security services are delivered, particularly in the context of the vast quantities of data enterprises find themselves grappling with thanks to developments such as the Internet of Things.

Telstra has already begun contributing code back to the Metron project. The telco has been working to build Metron “into a full industrial-scale managed security services platform,” Campbell said.

Using open source offers “the ability to be master of your own destiny when it comes to features and timelines,” he added, allowing the telco to be flexible in order to meet its clients’ requirements as well as adapt to an evolving market.
