Platform as a Service

SWITCHsonar is a cloud-based Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution hosted on SWITCHengines – the Swiss academic cloud. The managed service is based on a reliable multi-site data cluster infrastructure. Your data remains in Switzerland at all times. All data is available in real-time and is stored for up to 90 days. SWITCH can directly deliver data, detections and reports related to your organisation; or provide you with access to general information such as Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) and look-up lists. Information can be quickly made available using dashboards customised to your needs, supporting you with valuable visualisations, statistics and the results of correlations.

SWITCH Community

SWITCHsonar is a community-oriented solution with a long-term commitment. Benefit from swarm intelligence. Share your experiences with like-minded people and develop common use cases. For example, in logging, monitoring or Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).


Possible Service Extensions

Data Retention

Increase the data retention to support long-term analysis, to fulfil compliance requirements, to enable predictive analysis, etc.
