SES Space & Defense Delivers Satellite Connectivity to AWS Modular Data Center for the U.S. Department of Defense
SES Space & Defense, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SES, today announced the availability of flexible, secure, and reliable satellite-powered network connectivity for AWS Modular Data Center.
AWS Modular Data Center makes it easy for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to deploy modular data centers managed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in infrastructure-limited locations. In February 2023, AWS announced the availability of AWS Modular Data Center to the DoD under the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC) contract.
Leveraging SES’s multi-orbit, multi-band global fleet of satellites with AWS Modular Data Center, defense customers can access low-latency, cloud-based applications and services securely in Denied, Disrupted, Intermittent, and Limited (DDIL) environments through a dedicated network connection to AWS Regions. The U.S. DoD customers will also be able to leverage SES’s second-generation medium earth orbit (MEO) constellation, O3b mPOWER, designed with an open architecture approach in space, ground, and user terminal allowing users to bring their own modems/waveform. The introduction of O3b mPOWER system later this year further pushes industry benchmarks, delivering high-performance connectivity services ranging from tens of megabits to multiple gigabits per second for DoD customers.
Leveraging SES’ Cloud Direct offering, SES Space & Defense can enable connectivity between field-deployed AWS Modular Data Center and AWS Regions, allowing one-hop connection between essential cloud services at the tactical edge and a broader set of cloud services in AWS Regions. Customers operating in DDIL environments can utilize SES's satellite connectivity to support temporary AWS Modular Data Center deployments or as an interim connectivity solution for AWS Modular Data Center deployments, enabling customers to deploy workloads immediately upon the delivery of AWS Modular Data Center. Alternatively, if AWS Modular Data Center is utilizing terrestrial connectivity, customers can use SES’s satellite connectivity to provide network redundancy for mission-critical workloads.
President and CEO of SES Space & Defense David Fields said, “Our multi-orbit, multi-band satellite network delivers direct low-latency connectivity to AWS Regions, enabling mission success at the tactical edge. In a network-enabled battlefield, the ability to rapidly and securely extend cloud and edge computing into a tactical ecosystem in real time is critical to our warfighters in theatre.”

NETSCOUT Identified Nearly 7.9 Million DDoS Attacks in 1H2023 According to Its Latest DDoS Threat Intelligence Report26.9.2023 13:05:00 EEST | Press release
NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT) today announced findings from its 1H2023 DDoS Threat Intelligence Report. Cybercriminals launched approximately 7.9 million Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in the first half of 2023, representing a 31% year-over-year increase. Global events like the Russia-Ukraine war and NATO bids have driven recent DDoS attack growth. Finland was targeted by pro-Russian hacktivists in 2022 during its bid to join NATO. Turkey and Hungary were targeted with DDoS attacks for opposing Finland's bid. In 2023, Sweden experienced a similar onslaught around its NATO bid, culminating with a 500 Gbps DDoS attack in May. Overall, ideologically motivated DDoS attacks have targeted the United States, Ukraine, Finland, Sweden, Russia, and multiple other countries. During 2H2022, NETSCOUT documented a trend in DDoS attacks against wireless telecommunications providers that incurred a 79% increase globally. That trend continued among APAC wireless providers in 1H20
Quectel IoT Modules Get High Security Scores From Cybersecurity Expert Finite State; Pioneering Cybersecurity Transparency Program Begins26.9.2023 13:00:00 EEST | Press release
Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global IoT solutions provider, announced today that extensive testing by Finite State, a major cybersecurity consultancy, shows that Quectel’s products substantially exceed industry standards and best practices in multiple security measures. Quectel engaged Finite State, a third-party expert security firm focused on managing software supply chain risk for the enterprise, to rigorously test Quectel’s IoT modules to demonstrate Quectel’s commitment to transparent, verifiable product security. The first progress report released to Quectel concludes that its modules’ security score, as reflected in Finite State's risk profiling, started strong when testing began earlier this year and got stronger rapidly as Quectel implemented Finite State’s recommendations. The score improved across the modules tested from an average of 62 to 24 with the highest possible score being 10. The report underlines that this is a significant improvement in Quectel’s security posture
