Security Services

The WACREN Network Operating Centre provides threat intelligence feeds for security policy a standalone reporting service or for incorporation into Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems.

The NOC also provides DDoS protection for NRENs through two avenues - as a direct backbone service and via NREN peering with the WACREN Blackhole Server.

WACREN supports the establishment of Cyber Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) and enables them to prevent and respond to IT security incidents. By enabling the cooperation and collaboration of these teams and interfacing with other CSIRTs worldwide, the service allows for the prevention, management and coordination of potential cybersecurity-related emergencies in the region. The service infrastructure provided for the NRENs is based on best practices and serves as a trusted clearinghouse for their teams.
