- Network Access Guard provides identity access management to secure traditional, virtualized and Software Defined Networks
- Signaling Security Solution, consisting of Signaling Guard and Security Assessment service, detects and prevents attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in the SS7 protocol
As the complexity of mobile network security increases with 3G/LTE and telco cloud/SDN, a centralized identity and access control system able to authenticate operator staff and provide secure, granular access to network elements is required. Potential vulnerabilities in the SS7 (Signaling System 7) protocol could open the door to advanced fraud, hijacking of subscriber communications or Denial-of-Service attacks. To help operators deal with the multifaceted demands of protecting security and privacy in the smartphone and Internet of Things (IoT) era, Nokia Networks has extended its security portfolio with new protection capabilities complemented by expert professional services in assessment and deployment.
Dealing with rocketing security complexity
Two new Nokia Networks solutions help shield network operations from unauthorized access, both from external attackers and from staff within organizations:
- Nokia’s Network Access Guard addresses the sheer intricacy that operators face in managing internal staff access to multiple network element systems. It secures, identifies and monitors employee access while simplifying the way privileged users handle critical network elements.
- Nokia’s Signaling Security Solution can identify weaknesses in an operator’s SS7* infrastructure and implement a firewall to protect against subscriber data being hacked as well as other malicious intrusions. Nokia Networks is the only major telecom infrastructure vendor to offer such end-to-end SS7 protection.
