Digital Encode commissions cyber security operation centre
INFORMATION security management firm, Digital Encode, has introduced a monitoring solution that will remotely monitor the cyberspace of organisations and report or stop unauthorised access to database in Nigeria.
According to Digital Encode, the monitoring solution is expected to monitor vulnerable ports, servers, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cyber threat maps, which shows the line of attacks and the sectors being attacked.
As Information Systems are becoming more complex and frequently changing, maintaining the global security level of a company has become critical.

The Chief Technical Officer of Digital Encode, Oluseyi Akindeinde, said, “the solution, which was developed by the Centre for Information Security Intelligence (CISI), an arm of Digital Encode, was necessitated by the growing rate of cyber attacks and cyber espionage leading to loss of data and money.”
Akindeinde, added that the solution was capable of monitoring banks’ networks with its threat management system solution. “The solution comes with installed sensors that give alerts if there is observed intrusion. Our solution can easily detect attacks and blacklist the IP address from where the attack emanated from, and thereafter blacklist and block all illegal transactions from the IP address,” he noted.
The Centre for Information Security Intelligence (CISI) is a centralised arm of Digital Encode devoted entirely to cyber defence, combining a Security Operations Centre (CSOC) with an analysis capability of new and emerging threats and vulnerabilities.
The Chief Operating Officer of Digital Encode, Wale Obadare, said that the monitoring solution was affordable for big and small organisations and it is expected to monitor cyberspace of organisations in order to investigate fraud related issues.
