Use Case

5G

Get ready for the transformative machine to machine revolution provided by 5G.

5G is a massive technology leap for mobile and wireless technologies.

High broadband speed up to 5 Gbps and lower latency with new management capabilities such as network slicing result in new use cases with always-on and hyper connectivity for people and Internet of Things.

In our daily life, the perspectives of transformation are huge: just think about smart home, smart cities, e-health, transportation or agriculture…

Built-in cybersecurity?

However, faster, always-on and pervasive connectivity mean new cyber risks. As the last walled gardens disappear, threats and attack surfaces grow at an exponential rate. Perimetric security becomes notably insufficient. Enterprise, institutions and organizations must rely on software with real built-in security: it is now an imperative pre-requisite before deployment.  Moabi measures and improves the security posture of this new wave of software.

Prepare for OSS/BSS security readiness

Simultaneously, telecom operators or digital service providers should integrate, deploy and operate new OSS and BSS platforms to deliver on the 5G promise. As these systems are the new engines of 5G, they should be evaluated thoroughly to guarantee the relevant level of cybersecurity. Moabi helps these telecom operators to qualify their solution with tangible and consistent security criteria.

Select network equipment providers with cybersecurity criteria

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) have enriched and extended network capabilities in terms of agility, performance and network features. But the use of new software building blocks and the end of proprietary hardware-based systems have raised new cybersecurity challenges to deliver truly secured networks for end users and telecom providers themselves. As telecom networks are vital for countries and their sovereignty, it is of the utmost importance to deeply review the built-in security of these new software-based networks.

Standard network scans fall short to determine the level of security of any components, and they come too late in the deployment project phases. Most of the time software source code analysis is not available. And alarming rates of false positives renders such solutions of little actionable value.

Moabi empowers telecom operators to get a full visibility on the security level of their equipment providers and helps them to qualify their solutions with tangible and consistent security criteria.
