Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN & NFV solutions, has announced that the company has won the Cybersecurity Excellence Award in the category for SDN/NFV Security.
Telco Systems received this award recognition for its NFV CyberGuard solution for protecting SDN and NFV infrastructures.
SDN and NFV networks are open, software-based and designed to be programmed and controlled remotely, which creates inherent security vulnerabilities, including ongoing threats of hacking, malware and other cybersecurity related attacks.
NFV CyberGuard is an innovative cybersecurity solution designed specifically to protect SDN and NFV infrastructures used by telcos and other communications service providers. The solution consists of advanced networking probes, NFVI agents and a big data analytics engine.
NFV CyberGuard can be deployed as a virtualized network function and provides complete visibility of the entire network, real-time analysis of network threats and the ability to apply cybersecurity policies to the entire infrastructure. The
Cybersecurity Excellence Awards is an independent awards program produced in cooperation with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the experience ofover 300,000+ cybersecurity professionals and recognizes the world’s best cybersecurity products, individuals and organizations.
“Most Tier 1 and Tier 2 telcos in competitive markets have formulated their SDN and NFV strategies and many have already deployed NFV on their core network. However, the feedback that we are consistently getting is that the concerns over the cybersecurity vulnerabilities are occupying the attention of many telcos in advanced stages of their SDN & NFV plans and PoC testing,” explained Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems. “This award validates our efforts to help our telco customers protect their investments in SDN and NFV and securely benefit from these two technologies.”
Telco Systems and its NFV CyberGuard solution also recently won the Best Security Products and Solutions for Telecommunications at the Global Excellence Awards.
