Presentation Topic: The need for next-generation security with 5G networks
Brief description of the presentation:
5G technology is more advanced than previous iterations, but not when it comes to security.While operators transition from 4G to 5G networks, hackers will continue to take advantage of critical vulnerabilities in signaling protocols like Diameter and SS7. On top of this, new threats will knock on the door with new API-based signaling protocols.Operators must minimize the impact of such attacks on their reputations and their bottom lines. Sparkle is able to offer advanced security solutions on top of provided connectivity services, such as vulnerability assessments, real-time monitoring detection of anomalous activities, and signaling firewalls.
