Polystar delivers multi-technology probe-based solutions for real-time Network Performance, Service Quality and Customer Experience Management. Its passive probe system OSIXcaptures all signalling and user data events in the telecom networks and feeds this datainto the Jupiter application suite. Jupiter in turncreates business intelligence by delivering customised dashboards, reports, trending and analytical tools to a variety of departments within the network operator's organisation.

QosmosixEngine is the de facto industry-standard software engine for Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and L7 application intelligence in telecoms, cloud and SDN architectures. QosmosixEngine delivers network intelligence to Polystar by identifying thousands of protocols and extracting metadata attributes for the instant and most accurate picture of real-time activities and actual data traffic in the network. Going beyond traditional Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, Qosmos treats the network as a real-time database, to identify, query and extract specific data with unparalleled precision and detail.

"With Qosmos technology, we are able to considerably increase the monitoring and data-gathering functionality of our product portfolio," said Mikael Grill, CEO of Polystar. "Enhancing our portfolio with mobile aware DPI, our customerswill benefit from even stronger Big Data analysis tomake better sense of the information goldmine they have at their disposal, and as a resultwill be able tosuccessfully monetise their data assets and provide the best possible subscriber experience."

"By leveraging Qosmos network intelligence technology, Polystar can focus on their core competency of helping operators harness the value of Big Data,"commented ThibautBechetoille, CEO of Qosmos. "QosmosixEngine has become the primary link in the information value chain for Big Data analysis in telecoms, extracting detailed traffic information in real-time to feed solutions that sharpen operators' competitive edge."

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
