Commtel launches CN-SHIELD, its state-of-the-art AI solution offering 360-degree protection for Critical National Infrastructure

19 October, Mumbai: Commtel, a global leader in engineering and technology solutions, launched its new integrated platform that leverages big data analytics to provide actionable intelligence for robust end-to-end protection to any Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). Commtel made this announcement at the ongoing GITEX 2021, Global Event in Dubai, UAE.

CN-Shield is an artificial intelligence software solution that integrates all assets, monitors, assesses the data, and implements faster and cohesive 360-degree protection. It aims at bridging the gap in security in the era of cyber-physical systems. CN-SHIELD is implemented on Nybl’s AI platform.  It is an engineered system deployment that is customised, and purpose built for a specific customer site. Using its unique C6Ai architecture it provides the customer with power to collect data from myriad devices and systems on a single data processing platform.

“Today, when we are witnessing an increasing convergence between the digital and physical worlds, it is crucial for any CNI to detect physical manifestations of cyber events as well physical events that may impact the security and safety of their assets. CN-SHIELD will enable a CNI to achieve that objective. This offering demonstrates our capabilities in building software solutions based upon our accumulated domain knowledge”, says Mr. Shriprakash R. Pandey, CMD, Commtel Networks.

CN-SHIELD is the first in a new line of AI-based solutions from Commtel for protecting the CNI and its ecosystem. The solution uses advanced ML/AI technology for timely delivery and action of threat intelligence, allowing CNI to optimize and secure its mission-critical assets and communications networks amidst the complexity of rapidly digitalizing operating environments. CN-SHIELD will help CNI stay secure, enable them to tap into the power of their organizational data, manage their operations and security fundamentals.

Shriprakash further states, “This significant development is a natural progression for Commtel, as over two decades, we have catered predominantly to customers in the CNI sectors. It is one more step in furthering our vision to help build a smarter, faster, and safer world.”

CN-SHIELD is a perfect example of the incredible achievements possible at the intersection of subject matter expertise and expertise in Artificial Intelligence. Nybl is on a mission to democratize AI by eliminating the technical barriers of developing and deploying AI applications and our partnership with Commtel and CN-SHIELD, built on Nybl, is a testament to the extraordinary results when two experts in their respective domains collaborate.” added Mr. Noor Alnahhas, CEO, nybl.

Oil & Gas Networks and Systems Resilience

To borrow from the observation(s) from a WEF paper (2021), the digital revolution and the energy transition have jointly transformed the oil and gas industry’s decades-old business model in just a few short years. Today, companies control physical energy assets by linking operational technology with information technology networks that leverage big data, artificial intelligence, and automation.

Potential Blockchain Application in Energy Industry – Asset Lifecycle Management

A large portion of the existing systems in oil & gas industry – exploration, production, and supply chain and logistics operations – are centralized, manual, and disintegrated, making them vulnerable to manipulation and single point of failure. Blockchain technology offers practical solutions in providing traceability, immutability, operational transparency, audit, security, and trusted provenance features.

Should Digital Business (Transformation) and Sustainability be seen as complementary growth drivers?

Digitalisation is expected to have profound (‘transformative’) effects on the economy, society, and politics as well as on the planet itself.

This includes the production, use and disposal of hardware (Information and Communication Technologies equipment, data centres, data transmission networks) as well as of software, digital technologies, and applications – ranging from robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), via distributed ledger technologies such as blockchain, to Artificial Intelligence (AI).
