Nokia is addressing rising security threats to telecom networks by launching its Security Risk Index assessment service and Managed Security Service.

The new Security Risk Index analyzes security gaps across mobile, IP and fixed networks and suggests performance improvements for communication service providers.

Managed Security Service ensures networks are adequately protected against all threats and provides attack prevention, detection, response and recovery.

Together, they form a unique, holistic approach to targeting security challenges across mobile, IP and fixed networks in the digital transformation era, when new services and virtualized systems also introduce new vulnerabilities, said Nokia.

In addition to addressing their own security needs, operators can white label Managed Security Services to enterprises under their own brand, which offers revenue potential in the fast-growing enterprise security market and optimizes time to market.

According to Nokia, growing regulatory pressure and increasingly complex networks carrying sensitive data from Internet of Things (IoT), personal devices, and social and business applications have heightened the importance of data security for operators.

Nokia said it is taking a unique, integrated approach that starts from assessing operators' security risks across various security domains, benchmarking against industry peers, and providing a 360-degree gap analysis and suggestions for performance improvements. 

Patrick Donegan, Principal Analyst, HardenStance
Telecom operators need strategic security partners that have a deep understanding of the unique aspects of their network environment and the threats that they and their customers face. Nokia's Security Risk Index and Managed Security Service propositions are an important contribution to addressing those challenges.

Friedrich Trawoeger, Head of Managed Services, Nokia 
Operators must be prepared for a security breach. A dynamic, managed security proposition is needed to eliminate possible threats, so we are taking a comprehensive approach to security from assessing risks to managing and maintaining our customers' security infrastructure.
