Narus, a provider of real-time traffic intelligence, and Sify Technologies have announced that Sify has received the 'Certificate of Compliance' from India's Department of Telecommunications, stipulating that they met the Lawful Interception and Monitoring System (IPLC-LIMS) regulations for the International Private Leased Circuits Traffic. This certificate was awarded based on Sify's demonstrated use of the NarusInsight Intercept Suite (NIS), and is required for Sify to offer international long-distance service to its customers.
The explosive growth of IP-based data services worldwide has prompted lawmakers to expand existing wiretap laws to cover new modes of communications that leverage IP, such as VoIP and e-mail. As India has one of the world's fastest growing telecommunications markets, the Indian government has recognised a responsibility to put in place its own lawful intercept regulations. To meet these regulations, Sify partnered with Narus, to install Narus' Intercept Suite in their network. The NarusInsight Intercept Suite allows legal intercept of traffic travelling over a provider's network, regardless of the traffic being encapsulated and routed in different ways. The certificate was issued after the two companies demonstrated to the Indian authorised Law Enforcement Agencies that Sify met the functional requirements of IPLC-LIMS.
"Through our work with Narus and the implementation of the NarusInsight Intercept Suite, we are able to satisfy our government's requirements for lawful interception and monitoring of our long-distance voice and data traffic in near real time," said P J Nath, executive vice president, Sify Enterprise Solutions. "This compliance certificate completes our licencing requirements to offer international long-distance service and grow our business."
"NIS is the only solution available that can see and extract targeted data from large, heterogeneous networks -- a requirement for lawful intercept on IP networks," said Yogi Mistry, senior vice president of engineering at Narus. "Governments and service providers alike recognise Narus' technology as critical in today's environment, and appreciate the advantage of leveraging Narus' Insight system for traffic intelligence applications beyond intercept including cyber security and traffic management to address grey VoIP, SPAM and other traffic of interest."
NIS is an intercept and surveillance application that provides real-time, surgically precise targeting, allowing full IP session reconstruction and visibility for traffic such as web mail, e-mail, IM, VoIP and other IP-based communications.
