Data Security Solutions for Telecommunications
Protecting Customer Privacy and Enabling a Secure 5G Future
Telecommunications companies are adopting new platforms and environments at a fast pace, transforming their infrastructure and enhancing their capabilities. Telecommunications companies are expected to invest more than $600 billion in 5G infrastructure between 2022–25. However, 5G is only the most visible transformation. Behind the scenes, even broader changes are occurring.
Multicloud has become a reality for Telecoms. 80% of telecommunication providers have two or more Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers, and the average number of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications used by Telecom organizations is 113, compared to 97 for enterprises in general. All of this increases complexity and makes cybersecurity an even bigger challenge.
Digital transformation at telecommunications organizations increases the complexity of hybrid IT infrastructure and both cybersecurity and compliance risks. Thales 5G security solutions deliver end-to-end encryption and authentication to help organizations protect data as it moves across IoT, radio access, edge, and the core network and data stores.Get the eBook
Protect sensitive data, secrets and keys across hybrid IT environments from a single pane of glass - on a single platform. Accelerate time to compliance by centralizing data discovery, classification, data protection, and access controls with centralized key management and granular access control policies.
Learn how this customer leveraged the Thales portfolio to revamp their cyber security posture and implement best-in-class security for sensitive customer and business data across the enterprise, improving compliance and reducing the risk of a data breach.
Provide a foundation of digital trust for PKI and address security concerns around subscriber privacy (de-conceal function for SUCI), subscriber identity and authentication vector generation, as well as subscriber key provisioning.
The quick and seamless implementation of CipherTrust Transparent Encryption and Luna HSMs enabled a quick time-to-compliance with regulations such as LGPD and minimized the risk of ransomware attacks for this major Latin American MNO.
Simplify user access to cloud services, streamline cloud identity management, and eliminate password hassles for IT and users, while providing a single pane view of access events across your app estate to ensure that the right user has access to the right application at the right level of trust.
A major North American mobile network operator (MNO) with global operations was able to quickly onboard SafeNet Trust Access Premium as a new cybersecurity service and to deploy it as a managed service to protect its enterprise customer with over 20,000 users.
Thales data in motion security solutions enable Mobile Network Operators to overcome those obstacles by maximizing 5G security without compromising performance, with low latency, near-zero jitter, and high throughput.
While 5G creates extraordinary opportunities for people and businesses, it also introduces security and technical challenges. To deliver on the promise of 5G and the applications that will advance the world, the network needs high capacity and low latency. This is only possible with efficient bandwidth utilization and the ability for the underlying systems to be able process data without latency. Thales High Speed Encryption (HSE) solutions meet the unique security and performance requirements for next generation networks that legacy security solutions simply can’t. HSEs offer advanced security features and network flexibility and are an ideal solution to support a wide range of modern networks and thwart attacks by providing fully authenticated end-to-end encryption and user controlled key management.
5G is opening up a whole new set of opportunities for connectivity. Future 5G network privacy and data security must focus on security issues related to user authentication, access controls and data protection.
Celona and Thales have combined their private LTE/5G solution and High-Speed Encryption (HSE) solution respectively to create a unique, highly reliable, secure wireless connectivity solution – especially for use cases where predicable throughput, low latency and security are critical.
The complexity of the infrastructure; the distributed nature of the 5G networks; the astounding number of devices including the growth in the Internet of Things (IoT) add to this complexity.
5G promises to be rich in new business models for users and the ecosystem key players (telecom operators, network & cloud vendors, system integrators…).
