By joining the initiative, TIM says it is confirming its commitment to fighting cybersecurity threats, and providing the project with knowledge from its cybersecurity experts and research and development laboratories.

AnchorFree, Domain Tools, Flowmon Networks, MarkMonitor, NTT, Paladion, Percipiet.ai, Silent Breach, Tanium and Unisys also joined alongside TIM. The latest additions mean the Accord now has 90 signatories.

An ecosystem approach

The initiative promotes collaboration among global technology companies and works to enhance cybersecurity for users and networks.

With operators, hardware and software developers and OTTs as signatories, the Accord aims to create an ecosystem of technological resources and expertise. The goal is to develop protection systems capable of dealing with current and future online threats that are being faced in increasingly complex, dynamic and interdependent settings.

The Cybersecurity Tech Accord also promotes information-sharing among partners and best practices to counteract cyber-crime.
