Delivered in a technology-agnostic fashion, NetPulse Secure will help public safety agencies overcome the serious threat cyberattacks pose to any mission-critical communications network, a threat which is growing by the day.
The NetPulse Secure service offers the following features:
- 24 x 7 x 365 network monitoring, analysis and reporting for infrastructure and systems (e.g., computer-aided dispatch (CAD), call-handling equipment (CHE), Emergency Services Internet Protocol Networks (ESInets), fiber-optic networks)
