ANKARA- Anadolu Agency
Turkey's top defense industry companies, including Aselsan and Havelsan, provide services to fight cyberattacks on institutions and critical infrastructures in the country.
Aselsan develops unique national solutions in the areas of cyber security, information security and cryptology, and carries out original projects aimed at meeting the needs of the public, military and civil sectors and foreign markets, according to the information compiled by Anadolu Agency.
Another defense industry company STM developed CyDecSys - a domestic and national integrated cyber security support system.
With the adopted methods, cyberattacks can be deeply scanned and tracked down to its source.
Havelsan also provides defense services with its three products - watch, barrier and shield- to various institutions.
The watch ensures that the information infrastructure components of the institutions are centrally collected, linked, questioned and alarmed.
The barrier was developed in order to protect the corporate information and data, to use it in accordance with the determined blocking rules and to prevent unauthorized exit or leakage outside the boundaries of the institution.
The shield acts as a web application firewall that can detect and block attacks on web applications, providing load balancing for very high amount of network traffic.
The economic cost of cyberattacks has reached $600 billion in 2017, 1 full percent of the entire global GDP, according to a recent report.
