I-Light and Indiana GigaPOP now offering cybersecurity services to members

With ransomware and other cyberattacks on the rise, Indiana’s colleges and universities need a way to quickly know about and mitigate cybersecurity incidents on their networks.

That’s why I-Light, Indiana’s high-speed research and education network, and the Indiana GigaPOP are partnering with OmniSOC to provide these services to its members—at no extra cost.

OmniSOC is a shared cybersecurity operations center for higher education and research and a trusted leader in the higher education cybersecurity community. Since forming in 2018, the center has made a name for itself delivering critical, actionable, high-quality alerts 24x7x365, at substantial savings.

“In our monthly town hall meetings with our members, we are hearing that cybersecurity—and its high cost—are huge concerns for them,” said Marianne Chitwood, executive director, I-Light and Indiana GigaPOP. “Partnering with OmniSOC allowed us to meet both these needs, truly benefiting our members.”

The I-Light network connects its 40+ member institutions seamlessly to each other as well as to the Indiana GigaPOP, which gives them access to national and international research and education networks and enables collaborative research with partners across the country and around the world. [Read the full article at I-Light | News]
