Protecting SDN and NFV Networks from Cyber Security Vulnerabilities

The deployment of SDN and NFV technologies is offering telcos and other network operators numerous operational and business benefits, although, at the same time, exposes these service providers to a range of “IT-like” security vulnerabilities. Unlike traditional telecoms networks, which are closed infrastructures protected by readily-available and mature security solutions, SDN and NFV networks are software-based and designed to be open and controlled remotely. This creates inherent security vulnerabilities, including ongoing threats of hacking, malware and other cyber-security related attacks.

This whitepaper outlines these security concerns associated with deploying SDN and NFV technologies and explains how Telco Systems is helping telcos overcome these challenges.
