Feb 16, 2017


Company recognized for protecting SDN and NFV networks against cybersecurity vulnerabilities with its NFV CyberGuard solution

MANSFIELD, MA, February 16, 2017 — 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. 

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards is an annual competition honoring individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. 

Telco Systems received this award recognition for the second consecutive year for its NFV CyberGuard solution for protecting SDN and NFV networks against cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

“The SDN and NFV plans of the leading service providers around the world are gaining momentum. Most have already started deployments, while many others are in advanced stages of their technology investigations and PoCs. Along with this progress, the understanding of the security risks of SDN and NFV technologies have been recognized by many industry organizations, including ETSI and the Cloud Security Alliance, and are expressed in the architecture guidelines of most Tier 1 telcos,” commented Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management at Telco Systems. “We are very pleased to win this award for the second year in a row and to receive this important recognition for our unique approach for protecting SDN and NFV networks.”

NFV CyberGuard is a cybersecurity solution purposely designed to protect SDN and NFV infrastructures used by communications service providers. NFV CyberGuard mitigates the cybersecurity vulnerabilities caused by the fact that SDN and NFV networks are dynamic, software-based and designed to be remotely programmed and controlled with distributed architecture. 

NFV CyberGuard combines advanced networking collectors infrastructure, a smart dedicated big data analytics engine, and monitoring and enforcement modules. The solution leverages anomaly detection analytics for the advanced identification of patterned and non-patterned security attacks on the control plane, service chain and logical flows. It provides complete visibility of the entire network, real-time analysis of network threats and the ability to apply cybersecurity policies to the entire infrastructure.
