Company receives the Cybersecurity Excellence Award for SDN/NFV Security for its NFV CyberGuard solution

MANSFIELD, MA, May 4, 2016 — Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN & NFV solutions, today 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 innovative NFV CyberGuard solution protecting SDN and NFV infrastructures against cyberattacks.

SDN and NFV networks are open, software-based and designed to be remotely programmed and controlled with distributed architecture, which create inherent security vulnerabilities, including ongoing threats of cybersecurity related attacks. 

NFV CyberGuard is a cyber security solution purposely designed to protect SDN and NFV infrastructures used by telcos and other communications service providers. The solution combines advanced networking probes, NFVI agents, a smart dedicated big data analytics engine, and monitoring and enforcement modules.

NFV CyberGuard can be deployed as a virtualized network function (NFVi) 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 recognizes the world’s best cybersecurity products, individuals and organizations. It is an independent awards program produced in cooperation with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the experience of over 300,000+ cybersecurity professionals.

“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.
