A Connected World Demands New Solutions for Network Defense

From the multitude of devices to the very network that connects the world, the telecommunications industry is rife with rich targets for hackers and attackers. According to industry analysts at Gartner, we can expect to see some 6 billion mobile users and 4.7 billion internet users by the year 2020. And analysts at IDC add that by 2020, we can also expect to see the machine- to-machine communications or “Internet of Things” expand into a $7 billion dollar industry, flooding the market with devices all looking to connect through the networks telecommunications providers must optimize, maintain and secure.

But network strength is not the only front that telecommunication providers must secure – they must secure the customer records and payment systems they now support. Consider just a few of the latest (and costly) attacks: a single breach at KT Corp in South Korea compromised 12 million customers, as criminals stole 11.5 billion won ($10.8 billion USD). Orange was hacked via web and mobile applications, leading to the theft of some 1.3 million customer records.

The heart of the connected world is under attack. Telecommunication service providers cannot wait or assume that devices or applications that are connecting to networks are secure. New, innovative and proven methods must be deployed as we work to build a more resilient and connected world.
