Test of Russian cyber defense system completed: Report

By Geoff Ziezulewicz

MOSCOW, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- A new system to protect the Russian Ministry of Defense from cyber attacks has completed testing, Russian news agency Tass reported Monday.

The system, developed by Russia's United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation, part of the Rostec State Corporation, will be expanded now that testing has finished, Tass quoted corporate representatives as saying.


Testing took more than two years, resulting in a system that detects threats instantly and informs the operator, Tass quoted officials as saying.

It can detect such attacks in real time, assess the threat level and take countermeasures, while determining where an attack originated.

The system's elements have thus far been deployed to more than 500 facilities, with work underway to expand the facilities protected by the system, Tass reported.
