Mobile traffic will continue its meteoric rise with the advent of 5G and IoT. In the next five years, mobile devices will drive the majority of Internet data traffic. And where data goes, so goes cyber-attackers. Cyber-threats both from and against the mobile network will increase. As a result, mobile service providers will need to evolve their infrastructure and security strategies to both secure their mobile infrastructure and protect the devices attached to that infrastructure.
This new Research Brief from AvidThink (formerly SDxCentral Research), delves into the evolution of the mobile network and explores new threats.
It also provides guidance on appropriate strategies for mobile service providers to deal with the onslaught of new attacks in the face of an explosion in traffic. The brief covers techniques to improve performance and efficiency in key areas like Gi/SGi-LAN, leveraging commodity cloud infrastructure, but also intelligently blending in hardware-accelerated capabilities as needed. The brief also goes into strategies to streamline security processing for different classes of mobile traffic by using subscriber, application, and other contextual information, as well as how security analytics and AI/ML need to brought in to assist with the deluge of security audit and log information.
Mobile service providers should download this research brief today and understand the new security and architectural considerations brought about by the evolution to 5G. By standing up to these new security challenges, service providers can mitigate their risks and fully capitalize on the 5G opportunity.
