A MAJOR MOVE BY IMM AGAINST CYBER ATTACKS
ISTTELKOM AS, the telecommunication infrastructure and information technologies company of IMM, gathers the IGDAS data under the roof of IMM. In this way, the data stored by the servers will be protected more proactively against cyber attacks 24/7 by IMM Data Center. In addition to targeting ₺12 million savings, a backup will be ensured in cases of disaster.
IMM steps up the measures against cyber attack, which is a major threat of the information sector. The servers owned by IGDAS are relocated to IMM Data Center by ISTTELKOM AS.
