Huawei Unveils E2E Cybersecurity Technology at ISF 2018 annual congress to Secure the Intelligent World

Oct 29, 2018

Las Vegas, USA, October 29, 2018 – As a Platinum Sponsor, Huawei attended the Information Security Forum (ISF) 29th annual congress, Las Vegas, USA, from October 27 to 30. At the congress, Mr. Vladimir M. Yordanov, Cybersecurity officer of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, presented Huawei 5G security practice. In addition, Huawei exhibited its latest security solution – SDSec (Software Define Security).

At the congress, Vladimir M Yordanov delivered an impressive speech on “5G Impact on Cyber Security for Enterprises - How 5G will transform cybersecurity for thousands of enterprises”.

The fifth generation of wireless technology is moving steadily toward the enterprise, and the telecom industry expects the introduction of 5G will have enormous economic impact on global business operation. Even though it's early in the development process, enterprises can expect 5G to improve productivity and business efficiency with enhanced wireless broadband speed and capabilities, Vladimir said.

New IT technologies, like virtualization and Software Defined Network (SDN)/Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), are seen as a way to make 5G networks more nimble and efficient, yet less costly, and new security concerns are emerging. This can be extended all industries such as Health Care, Finance, Transportation, Energy, Manufacturing, Smart Home, Oil and Gas, Public Infrastructure – every industry and aspect of our life is affected!

As enterprises and carrier networks are becoming more integrated, the security of network slices, mobile edge computing, network virtualization, cloud and by large all of the new functions and services introduced by 5G is of a paramount importance. 

When it comes to 5G, it is not simply about being a pipe for communication. It can be seen as a catalyst for minimizing the boundary between the digital world and physical world. 5G security design is an all-encompassing one that provides security protection for the everything-connected world.

Huawei exhibited its SDSec security solution at the Congress. With faster detection proactive defense mechanism and simplified network security policies management, Huawei’s SDSec helps to strengthening the overall security effectiveness of your network.

Huawei’s SDSec brought AI technology into network security solutions by using third-generation sandbox technology based on deep neural-network algorithms, significantly improving detection rates of malwares and unknown threats. As a result, Huawei’s SDSec solution greatly reduced the time-to-detection for known and unknown threats, creating a proactive defense mechanism to safe guard your network.

Huawei’s SDSec is the industry’s first network defense solution based on a framework of collaborated network and security controllers. By linking traditionally separated network and security functions, these equipment can now work in unison for much faster detection, isolation and eradication of any known and unknown threats. In addition, Huawei’s SDSec controller can greatly simplify the tasks of managing existing security policies as well as issuing new policies through policy templates, policy simulation and validation. 

An intelligent world is rapidly approaching. Cyber security assurance system must ensure the security of the integrated solutions, not merely individual products. As an ICT leader, Huawei has extensive experience in the technology, deployment, and management of integrated network products that cover devices, data pipes, and the cloud. We will leverage our decades of experience in ICT security technology to align security solutions with market demand at the strategic level, and further explore and develop approaches to ensure the end-to-end security.
