SDN & NFV firm, Telco Systems has launched a new cyber-protection solution to address security vulnerabilities in the deployment of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) networks. The solution is designed to protect SDN and NFV networks from ongoing threats of hacking, malware and other cyber-security related attacks.
The new NFV CyberGuard solution consists of advanced network monitoring sensors embedded on Telco Systems’ CloudMetro virtualization platform, a big data analytics engine and an SDN controller running on Telco Systems’ EdgeGenie Orchestrator. Telco Systems said that the NFV CyberGuard’s advanced network monitoring sensors continuously gather application-level session information from across the entire network and organize an ongoing database of expected network behavior.
A virtualized version of Telco Systems’ new cyber-protection solution – called vCyberGuard – is also available and will allow service providers to sell security-as-a-service offerings to their enterprise customers. vCyberGuard runs as TelcoApp from Telco Systems’ CloudMetro virtualization device and enables service providers to offer their enterprise customers value added IT management and security services.
