Telecommunications

The convergence of traditional circuit-switched networks with broadband and packet-based Internet Protocol (IP) networks leaves telecoms open to deliberate and malicious disruptions from cyberattacks. Our comprehensive approach to core telecom security includes an in-depth security assessment across all of your core network layers to identify every crack that hackers could use to crawl into your systems.
Secure your core telecom network

When guarding against service interruptions, telecom operators have traditionally thought about natural disasters and accidental disturbances. But the convergence of traditional circuit-switched networks with broadband and packet-based Internet Protocol (IP) networks leaves telecoms open to a new threat: deliberate and malicious disruptions from cyberattacks.

Defending the signaling network (SS7/SIGTRAN) is a good place to start, but ignoring other vulnerabilities will leave hackers with plenty of other ways to break in. Even novice hackers can carry out attacks on customer management, transmission, switching, access, mobile, and intelligent networks to bypass service charges, create spoof calls and SMS messages, intercept email, and gain unauthorized access to voicemail and subscriber accounts.

So what do telecoms need? A more complete security strategy that protects their core network as an integrated whole.
