Company recognized for its NFV CyberGuard solution for protecting new SDN and NFV telecommunications networks from cybersecurity threats

MANSFIELD, MA, March 1, 2016 — Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative SDN & NFV, multi-service Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and MPLS edge solutions, today announced that the company has won the gold award in the category for Best Security Products and Solutions for Telecommunications at the Global Excellence Awards by Info Security Products Guide.

Telco Systems received this award for its NFV CyberGuard solution for protecting new SDN and NFV networks used by telecommunications service providers from ongoing cybersecurity threats.

The Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

“Telcos are excited about SDN and NFV and the ability of these technologies to improve network versatility, reduce operational costs and create new business opportunities. At the same time, the fact that SDN and NFV networks are software-based and designed to be controlled remotely create many inherent, IT-like security vulnerabilities, including exposure to hacking, malware and other cyberattacks,” explained Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems. “We are proud to receive this award and see it as confirmation of our strategy to help service providers securely fulfill the promises of SDN and NFV.”

NFV CyberGuard is the first cyber-security solution designed specifically to protect SDN and NFV infrastructures used by telecommunications 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.

Telco Systems will be exhibiting its NFV CyberGuard solution at the MPLS+SDN+NFV World event at Booth #310 during March 8-11. Gal Ofel, Head of Software Solutions PLM at Telco Systems, will also be presenting at this event on Protecting SDN and NFV Networks from Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities in the Security Session of the NFV & Open Source Track on March 9.
