MWC 2024 | Huawei Multilayer Ransomware Protection (MRP) Solution Becomes the First to Get Tolly-certified

Published

on

mwc-2024-|-huawei-multilayer-ransomware-protection-(mrp)-solution-becomes-the-first-to-get-tolly-certified

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — At MWC Barcelona 2024, Huawei’s Multilayer Ransomware Protection (MRP) Solution was certified by Tolly Group, an authoritative international testing organization. The test results show that Huawei MRP detected 100% of the ransomware samples through network-storage collaboration. Network devices can perceive information and level of the ransomware, and collaborate with storage devices for blocking and protection, restoring services to the normal state.

Ransomware attacks continue to be a global threat, with the service, IT, and manufacturing industries being the primary targets. Therefore, it is crucial for enterprises to enhance the “immunity” of their data centers to protect against viruses and ransomware attacks, and to ensure the stable operation of their core service systems.
Huawei MRP solution is the first ransomware protection solution in the industry to achieve network-storage collaboration, and provides a two-line defense that includes six-layers of protection. The network is the first line of defense for security defense, providing intrusion prevention at the network border and intranet spread prevention. The storage is the last line of defense for data protection, providing storage protection, secure snapshot, backup protection, and isolation zone protection. The MRP solution builds an in-depth defense system with pre-, in-, and post-event phases, which complies with the Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover (IPDRR) cyber security framework of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is a systematic solution to defend against ransomware attacks, and it can better meet the requirements of global enterprises to provide high security for data center infrastructure.
The MRP solution test involves 21 test cases. The MRP solution passed all of them. The test covers collaborative detection, collaborative blocking, collaborative protection, and service recovery.
At MWC 2024, Kevin Tolly, founder of the Tolly Group, issued the “Huawei Multilayer Ransomware Protection (MRP) Solution” certificate to Huawei. He said, “This test covered all four aspects of ransomware protection, including virus detection, virus blocking, system protection, and system recovery. It used 21 typical test scenarios and is the most comprehensive and strict test that Tolly has conducted so far on ransomware protection. The test results show that the capability of Huawei MRP solution is industry-leading.”

The global data center colocation market is experiencing significant growth owing to the expanding use of IoT, cloud computing, and AI/ML technologies. Governments in various countries have launched digitalization initiatives to promote economic development, thereby boosting the operator confidence in managing data centers in the whole region. For example, the UK government implemented a cloud strategy to enhance the country’s adoption of cloud services. This has created a favorable environment for adopting cloud services among the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Europe as businesses increasingly recognize the benefits of digital transformation. The considerable growth in demand for colocation data centers can be attributed to regional organizations continuing to migrate their workloads to the cloud. This has attracted investments from both local and global data center providers.
Growing M&A and Joint Ventures in the Data Center Colocation Market
In the global market, joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions are commonly used strategies for businesses to expand, collaborate, or restructure their operations. The data center industry has witnessed significant joint ventures, mergers, and acquisitions. Additionally, there is an influx of companies from the real estate industry acquiring data center companies to enter the market. These acquisitions and JVs provide opportunities for new players to enter the market, attract customers, and gain a larger market share. Private equity firms are rapidly expanding their investment, considering the increasing demand for data centers and better returns in the short term. New players are entering the market by acquiring existing data center operators or forming joint ventures. Several colocation vendors in the Latin America data center colocation market are actively participating in mergers and acquisitions. For instance, in March 2022, Equinix acquired four data centers of Entel, located in Chile and Peru. In December 2022, Aligned Data Centers agreed to acquire ODATA, marking the company’s entry into the Latin American market.
In Europe, colocation prices vary from country to country. Markets such as the UK, Germany, and France account for the highest colocation pricing in Europe compared to the other markets. The data center colocation market will continue to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts continue to propel their market share and presence in the region, thereby driving the colocation market growth. Retail colocation spaces will register a higher demand than wholesale colocation spaces in the region. Conversely, other European markets may offer more competitive pricing due to various factors, including lower operating costs, access to renewable energy sources, and emerging data center hubs. The colocation market in Western Europe is expected to witness several mergers and acquisitions as large providers or investment trusts aim to increase their market share and presence. This consolidation is anticipated to contribute to the continued growth and competitiveness of the European colocation market.
Geographical Overview
Many data center investments are witnessed in the US, driven by the deployment of 5G, technological advances, the adoption of Big data and IoT, digitalization, and the development of smart cities. The Southeastern region, particularly North Virginia, is considered the global data center capital, hosting a high concentration of facilities. Virginia, Texas, California, and Georgia are the top states attracting investments from global operators. In Arizona, businesses in FTZs can receive significant tax reductions. The Northeastern region faces space constraints for data center development, leading to expansions in large-scale colocation facilities. Salt Lake City experiences significant demand from the IT, cloud, entertainment, media, and retail sectors, while Chicago experiences rapid growth and is expected to continue expanding. The US data center colocation market is expected to see the entry of new players. In 2022, notable newcomers, such as AUBix, Edge Centres, Corscale Data Centers, Yondr, and Quantum Loophole, entered the market. However, these newcomers will face competition from both local and established global players in the market. The US data center colocation market is set to continue its revenue growth. This growth will be fueled by providers who construct new facilities and expand their existing capacities. In 2022, the US market experienced notable M&As due to increased industry demand. This led to data center suppliers entering M&A contracts to expand their portfolios. This trend is expected to persist throughout the forecast period. New entrants aiming to expand their revenue will also contribute to the growth of the colocation market in the US.
