Telefonica puts focus on security

The SIM-based authentication space is getting competitive

European carrier Telefónica has unveiled a collaborative security working environment aimed at helping developers and researchers create and share their own digital intelligence gathered from different sources. It offers security researchers and intelligence analysts and developers a free infrastructure to create topologies using the modules available in the community as well as custom developed modules.

Sinfonier was born out of the need to provide real-time support in the processing of information
based on an open, collaborative community with a real-time framework (Apache-STORM) alongside an intuitive graphic interface and an abstraction layer to facilitate the development of new functions. According to Telefónica, anyone, from researchers with no programming knowledge to developers with considerable experience, can help to create intelligence.

Developers and researchers feed content into the algorithms in the form of topologies, maximising the use of information. Through this collaborative model information is obtained from a variety of sources and is transformed, thereby generating a digital intelligence environment which can then be used by all the users of the community in order to generate their own intelligence algorithms and solutions.

In related news, Telefónica revealed that over 250 partners have now joined its M2M Global Partner Programme, exceeding the programme’s target six months ahead of schedule.

The M2M Global Partner Programme was first launched in the USA by Telefónica in June 2013 as a way for the company to extend the commercial reach by partnering with key players in the M2M value chain.

It is estimated that there will be up to 20 billion objects connected by 2020 according to the GSMA. By comparison in 2004 only 92 million devices were connected worldwide. But as more and more devices come online, security is being shifted to the limelight, with greater consideration required for securing traditionally non-connected objects.
