How can service providers open network security to innovation and agility, keep up with both network evolution and increased cyber threats while decreasing the number of dedicated security elements in their network?
Service providers, including mobile network operators, cable operators and fixed service providers, are responding to the expansion of mobile applications, new digital services, and the Internet of Things (IoT) by rapidly undergoing a fundamental transformation to all-IP networks with LTE-Advanced, flexible virtualized networks (NFV/SDN), Mobile Edge Computing and, in the near future, 5G multi-access converged networks. Cyber criminals are also evolving their skills, extending more and more automation and malicious capabilities to the service provider ecosystem.
Dynamic automated prevention is essential. It is vital that service providers take an automated, platform approach for network security. Network and subscriber protection are no longer separate problems and both data and signaling layer must be addressed through a dynamic, prevention-oriented platform that protects both the networks and subscribers. In addition, agility is required to maintain consistent security efficacy in environments that can include any combination of converged, fixed and mobile, physical and virtual architectures. To protect against rapidly evolving threats, this new platform-based security model must be able to leverage the entire security ecosystem – incorporating support security apps built by vendors, by third-party partners and even by service provider internally developed security applications.
In this webinar, we will discuss the major industry trends impacting service provider network security, including the game-changing evolution of IoT, the overall evolving threat landscape including mobile malware and botnets and the main challenges that are impacting both network service providers and their subscribers. Topics will include:

In a landmark move, Netflix recently passed cable operators for the most overall pay-TV subscriptions in the US as the cord-cutting trend continues to gain momentum. Plus, industry analysts estimate that more subscribers moved away from traditional pay-TV services than ever before in the second quarter.
This webinar will look at the impact that these constantly changing Internet traffic and subscriber trends are having on today’s service provider networks. Also, the session will explore how new physical layer technologies like NG-PON2 and software-defined access network architectures are driving providers to instrument, automate and future-proof their networks for high-bandwidth services.
