German telecom company provides real-time map of Cyber attacks
In hopes of blunting mounting electronic assaults, a German telecommunications carrier unveiled a free online capability that shows where Cyber attacks are happening around the world in real time.
Deutsche Telekom, parent company of T-Mobile, put up what it calls its “Security dashboard” portal on March 6. The map, said the company, is based on attacks on its purpose-built network of decoy “honeypot” systems at 90 locations worldwide
Deutsche Telekom said it launched the online portal at the CeBIT telecommunications trade show in Hanover, Germany, to increase the visibility of advancing electronic threats.
